Problem Description

Incorrect backup job status is returned when calling the and API for backup jobs performed with AhsayOBM / ACB version 7.

"BS_BACKUP_NOT_FINISHED" is always returned as the value for "BackupJobStatus", which is incorrect. For example:

API call:

JSON Post:

JSON Return:
"Status": "OK",
"Data": {
"NumOfUpdatedPermissionFiles": 0,
"NumOfUpdatedFiles": 0,
"MissedPublicFolder": "",
"NumOfCopiedFiles": 0,
"NumOfNewFiles": 0,
"MissedDatabase": "",
"BackupJobStatus": "BS_BACKUP_NOT_FINISHED",
"TotalMovedFilesSize": 0,


This issue can occur if the "DestinationID" parameter was not provided when calling the and API.

For backup job performed with AhsayOBM / ACB version or above, the "DestinationID" parameter must be provided to get the correct return.


Provide the "DestinationID" parameter when calling the and API for backup job performed with AhsayOBM / ACB version 7.

Refer to the AhsayCBS API Guide for more details on the required parameters for each API calls.
