Setting Backup Policy Priority

By default, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure runs backup policies in the order you create them. However, you can set the backup policy priority manually.

  1. Navigate to Policies.
  2. Switch to the necessary tab and click Priority.
  3. In the Priority Order window, use the Up and Down arrows to set the priority order for backup policies, and the Top and Bottom arrows to immediately set the highest or the lowest priority for a policy. Click Apply to save the settings.

The first backup policy in the list will have the highest priority.


If an Azure resource is included into multiple backup policies, it will be processed only by the backup policy that has the highest priority.
