View and manage backups
To view and manage backups of groups and teams in your Microsoft 365 environment within Cloud Application Backup (CAB):
In the CAB Management Portal, click Homepage in the sidebar menu.
The list of backup tasks opens.
Click the Microsoft Groups and Teams backup task.
The backup task page opens.
The backup task page allows configuring backup settings, and managing backups of individual groups and teams.
Group, team, and backup details
The backup task page shows all Microsoft groups and teams available for managing in CAB by your Microsoft 365 admin account in the table format with the following details:
|G&T||Name of the group or the team|
|Type||Group or Team|
|Tags||Tags associated with the group or the team|
|Status||Status of the group or the team backup. See Backup status for details.|
|Backup Size||Size of the backup data|
|Last Backup||Time from the latest completed backup|
|Backup||Set of quick actions you can take in respect to the group or the team backup. See Quick actions for details.|
You can sort groups and teams in the backup task by these details.
Group and team backups can have one of the following statuses shown in the Status column:
|Not Active||Backup is not activated for the group or the team|
|Scheduled||Backup for the group or the team was activated, but the initial backup was not performed yet|
|Success||Last backup of the group or the team completed successfully|
|In Process||Backup of the group or the team is currently in progress|
|Failed||Last backup of the group or the team failed|
|Paused||Backup of the group or the team is paused|
|Archived||Backup is suspended since the group or the team was removed from the Microsoft environment. Backup data is stored in our storage until you delete group or team backup.|
|Partial||CAB failed to back up the group or the team|
To view backup statistics for a certain group or team, click More () on the right of the group or the team. This will expand and show the backup timeline and the summary tiles.
The timeline shows the number of items backed up each day. To view details, hover over the respective column. The numbers include all new and changed items, so it may be greater than the total number of items included in backup (shown in the summary tiles).
By default, the timeline shows information for the last two weeks. To adjust this range, use the slider below the timeline. The maximum range is 30 days.
The summary tiles below the timeline show information about the backup of items in the group or the team: number of items included in backup, date and result status of the last backup.
