Viewing the Backup Job Summary Report

You can generate the Backup Job Summary Report in the CommCell Console.

By default, the Backup Job Summary Report can display job details for up to 10,000 rows. To increase the number of rows, you can use a Qcommand to set the maximum row limit. For instructions, see Configuring the Number of Rows for the Job Details Table.
