I discovered Kopia today and so far, I’m impressed (I’m using restic and a variety of other backup approaches for quite some time). With restic not having a UI, I intentionally started looking at Kopia “through the UI” and not the CLI for now.
What I miss though (or probably don’t understand) is how to monitor success/failure of tasks through some kind of notification mechanism. (I’ve had other commercial backup solutions failing silently for some time, so this is kind of important for me).
So I understand there are actions, which are defined as part of a policy (if enabled) but they don’t appear to be configurable in the WebUI? Sure, I can switch to cron jobs and script everything, but how does that relate to the scheduling in the UI? Can I use the WebUI to change/inspect/restore cron scheduled tasks?
I guess the relation between the Web UI and the plain CLI approach is kind of unclear to me so far…
