What is a backup job?

A backup job is a custom backup task IT admins can create. A backup job includes the following parameters:

  • The scope of the data being backed up across any number of clouds
  • The retention duration for the backup archives
  • Enable or disable auto addition of users to the backup job (applicable for Microsoft 365 & Google Workspace)


If you are the IT administrator, you can create:

  • Only one backup job in the beta version or during the free trial
  • Any number of backup jobs in the general availability version

You can initiate or edit a backup job by navigating to the “Jobs” page in the SysCloud backup application.
