Azure Backup Reports

  Posted by Pantelis Apostolidis , 29 June 2017 · 20 views

<h1 style="text-align: justify;">Azure Backup Reports</h1>
<p style="text-align: justify;">A new feature is in public preview, the Azure Backup Reports. Now we can have the Azure Backup Reports at the OMS Workspace, Event Hub and Power Bi. You can use Power BI to view report dashboard, download reports and create custom reports</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The configuration has two steps, one to configure the Azure Backup Reports connection with each service and the other is to get the data at each service.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">First go to a Recovery Services vault and select Backup Reports. Next press the Configure button.</p>
<p id="OZGlKqC" style="text-align: justify;"><img class="alignnone wp-image-1331 size-full" src="http://www.e-apostol...3928e507c7.png"alt="Azure Backup Reports" width="596" height="503" srcset="http://www.e-apostolidis.gr/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/img_5953928e507c7.png 596w, http://www.e-apostol...7c7-300x253.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 596px) 100vw, 596px" /></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The Diagnostic settings blade will open. Change the Status to “On” and select the desired services to collect the Azure Backup Logs.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">For the Power Bi integration we need a Storage account. So check the “Archive to storage account” option and select a storage account. The storage account must be at the same region as the Azure Backup account.</p>
