Monitoring backups

I'm trying to find a way to automate the backup monitoring with Zabbix.

I added a backup script hook in PVE so every time a VM is backed up, the zabbix server is notified. This allow me to configure a trigger based on last backup date so there is an alert if a VM is not backed up for 48h.

I would like to monitor the verify and sync jobs. Is there a way to get the last date of successful verify and sync jobs? It can be with some script hook, command line or api.

Thank you!

Why do you need an external script for this?

I didn't build it myself in Zabbix yet but you should be able to build discoveries with PBS json api:
