You can view these alerts on the Managed Services Center (MSC) portal under >Alerts section. Administrators can take corrective actions in case of accidental or malicious deletion with the help of these alerts.

Enhancements

Flexibility to set backup frequency and retention limits

Lower (Min) and Upper (Max) compliance limits options are now added to the Backup Frequency and Retention limit section on the Edit/Add Service Plan page.

Min and Max.jpg

With this enhancement, you can now provide Lower (min) and Upper (max) limits for Backup Frequency (Daily or Weekly) and Retention (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly) while adding or updating a service plan. Based on the Lower (min) and Upper (max) limits provided, you will receive alerts if the backup frequency or retention period does not adhere to the set limits and thus helps you monitor and optimize data backup.

For example,  if you have provided 5 times (Daily/Weekly) as the Lower (min) and 10 times (Daily/Weekly) as Upper (max) limit for Backup Frequency, you will receive an alert if the backup frequency is less than 5 times (Daily/Weekly) and also when it is more than 10 times (Daily/Weekly).
