Managing Permissions

Veeam Backup for AWS controls access to its functionality with the help of user roles. A role defines what operations users can perform and what range of data is available to them in the Veeam Backup for AWS UI.

There are 3 user roles that you can assign to users working with Veeam Backup for AWS. Actions a user can perform depend on the role.

  • Portal Administrator — can perform all configuration actions and can also act as a Portal Operator and Restore Operator.
  • Portal Operator — can create and manage backup policies, manage the protected data and perform all restore operations.
  • Restore Operator — can only perform restore operations.

The following table describes the functionality available to users with different roles in the Veeam Backup for AWS UI.
