The sensors are implemented as New and Beta. You can use the Veeam Backup Job Status Advanced Sensor sensor if you enable the Beta Sensors feature in the experimental features via > Setup > Monitoring >Experimental Features. The Veeam Backup Job Status Sensor is already in the product as New.

Here are the direct links to the manual.
