Salesforce App provides a view of the app activities such as backup, restore, and changes in app settings from the Recent Activity view on the DASHBOARD tab and from the ACTIVITY STREAM tab. While the Recent Activity view displays just the five latest activities, the entire list of activities is displayed on the ACTIVITY STREAM tab. The activity information displayed includes:

  • TYPE: The  activity type, such as Backup, Restore, Download, and so on.
  • ADMINISTRATOR:  Username of the administrator who initiated the activity. The field is blank if the activity was initiated from the inSync Management Console and for scheduled activities.
  • START TIME: The start time of the activity. This time is displayed based on the timezone set in the App Settings.
  • END TIME: The start time of the activity. This time is displayed based on the timezone set in the App Settings.
  • STATUS: The status of the activity.  Click on the status to view and know more about the error details in case of failed, partially failed, and canceled backup and restore activity. For example: API Quota Reached.
  • STATUS DETAIL:  Provides the details about status at which the backup or restore activity failed. 
    • If the backup or restore activity failed at the activity level, (For example: API Quota reached or activity canceled by the administrator), then the status is displayed. Click on the link to view the error details.
    • If the backup or restore activity failed at an Object level, then a hyphen is displayed.
  • Download link for activity log is available only for backup and restore activities. 

Cancel the ongoing backup and restore activity

You can cancel any ongoing backup and restore activity.  To cancel an activity, click the Cancel.png icon and then click Yes on the confirmation pop-up that appears. The status of the activity changes to Backup Canceled by Administrator.

Time period filters:

  • Last 24 Hours
  • Last 7 Days
  • Last 1 Month
  • Last 3 Months

Activity type filter:

  • Backup
