Views and Rule Options

When you define content or filters for a VM group, you can change the view and select specific entities, or define rules to automatically select applications that meet specific criteria.

Note: Commvault only backs up applications that have persistent volume claims (PVCs).

Views

When you browse to select applications for VM group content or filters, you can select a browse method for the Browse and select VMs list, and then expand the tree below the list to select the content for the VM group, or to clear previous selections.

You can select one of the following options from the list to control the browse display:

  • Projects: Select a project to include all applications for the project, or expand a project to select applications.
  • Applications: Select an application.

Rules

You can define rules to discover applications automatically.

When you add a rule, from the Select rule for list, choose one of the following rules and then, from the Which matches with list, select Equals, Contains, Starts with, or Ends with:

  • Application name/pattern: In the Name box, type the display name of the application or a pattern using wildcards (for example, Test* to identify applications for which the application name begins with "Test").
