In the standalone edition or MR it's possible to configure emails per job, including the recipient, subject, and content. I *really* wish Site Manager offered similar functionality, since this would make it possible to monitor Site Manager backups using third party tools.
In my specific case, I've set up healthchecks.io to monitor various other types of backups that I have set up (backups of NAS-s & Ubuntu servers), as well as databases, ticketing and other platforms, etc. I wish I could also monitor my Macrium jobs there. Healthchecks.io works like this: you set up checks and configure when you expect that check to be "pinged". The check can be "pinged" either via an http request or by sending an email to a specific mailbox. Each "check" has its own email address. The subject line must indicate whether the task was successful or not.
So, for this to work, I would need to be able to configure the emails sent after each Macrium job separately. An example email would look like:
To: [email protected]
Subject: Macrium Backup of Computer-1 Successful
- I would have to be able to configure separate "To" addresses for each backup job.
- The subject must indicate whether the backup was successful or not
This is currently possible with the standalone install of Macrium, but not with definitions configured on the site manager.
I understand that services such as healthchecks.io are in a way competitors to Macrium's "Multisite" product, but having such a feature would make Macrium a more competitive solution because at the end of the day, MSP-s that need to monitor heterogeneous infrastructure will have to find solutions that can be monitored via vendor-independent services, such as healthchecks.io (but there are many alternatives).
