A new feature just popped up in my Recovery Services Vault named Backup Reports:
This new feature is easily find under Settings blade –> Monitoring and Reports –> Backup Reports as stated in the message. When you click on that you are introduced with two-step configuration:
First we will configure Storage Account where the data will be stored for these reports.
Surprisingly you can also configure OMS Log Analytics as target for the data as well:
As you can see you will get report data, jobs data, event data and replicated items data for your Azure Backups.
Keep in mind that is best to wait until insights-logs-azurebackupreport container appears before moving to the next step.
The second step is to Sing in to PowerBI and find Azure Backup Content Pack:
We will need to provide the storage account we had configured previously:
And primary access key for the storage:
After sign in the data will start to upload.
After successful import you can see the data in Azure Backup dashboard.
In my case I do not have much data but you can see what kind of data will appear in yours over some time.
What about Log Analytics? Luckily that data is there as well:
You can see that I get Azure Backup data directly in AzureDiagnostics type. This data is immediately transferred to your workspace once it is generated. In the above case I’ve triggered a backup to a VM that does not exists and Report event is generated.
Currently there is no out of the box solution for this data but I hope it will be coming at some point. Till that time you can always use the view designer to build some to yourself.
