    Registering New Azure AD Application

    If you created a Microsoft Azure Compute account using the Create a new account option, you may need to register a new Azure AD application instead of the already created one. For example, the secret key of the created application got expired or the application was deleted.

    To register a new Azure AD application, use the Reconfigure account functionality:

    1. Edit the necessary credential as described in the Editing Credentials section.
    2. At the Subscription step, click Reconfigure account.
    3. In the opened window, enter credentials of an existing Azure user account. Note that the user name must be specified in the user principal name format (username@domain). Also, the user must have privileges described in Before You Begin.
    4. Back to the Microsoft Azure Compute Account wizard, click Finish.

    Veeam Backup & Replication will register a new Azure AD application and will use this application to communicate with Azure.

    Creating New Google Service Account

    1. Edit the necessary credential as described in the Editing Credentials section.
    2. At the Account step, click the Log In link.
    3. In the opened window, log into your Google Cloud account.
    4. Back to the Google Cloud Platform Service Account wizard, click Finish.

    Veeam Backup & Replication will create a new service account and will use it to communicate with Google Cloud Platform.
