Disable Items Restore options in Veeam Self-Service Backup Portal

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 has introduced a complete set of self-service capabilities for VMware vCloud Director users. Service providers can offer these features to their users, and users can perform backups and restores in a complete self-service way.
However, because of network restrictions that are often in place in vCloud Director environments, some features like Item restores are not possible. So, some service providers asked me if it was possible to remove the ITEMS tab in the portal, just to make the user experience of the portal easier. Or maybe a provider doesn’t want to offer these capabilities at all to its customers. Whatever is the use case, there’s a way to remove the tab. Just remember, this is totally unsupported!

Why a configuration option is in a registry key and not in the interface?

My job at Veeam is the first time in my IT career working in a software company, and I’ve learned a ton of things about software development.

One of the most fascinating things I’ve learned is UX (User Experience) development, in particular around the User Interface.

If you have few jobs to check, you can think about opening all of them one by one anche verify this parameter, but as the number of jobs grows, these checks becomes nearly impossible.
A nice solution is to leverage the complete Powershell support offered by Veeam Backup & Replication.

In un ambiente Veeam Backup & Replication che presenta un numero elevato di job, garantire che le loro configurazioni siano omogenee può essere talvolta complicato. Sebbene vengano definite delle procedure di creazione dei vari job e assegnate al personale che gestisce il prodotto, l’errore umano è sempre dietro l’angolo. Prendiamo un esempio. Si utilizzano una […]
