Changing User Passwords

For Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure user accounts, you can change the password specified while creating the account.


Consider the following:

  • You cannot change passwords of user accounts whose user identities were obtained from an identity provider.
  • If your backup appliance is managed by a Veeam Backup & Replication server and you change the password of a user whose credentials Veeam Backup & Replication uses to connect to the backup appliance, you must also change this user password in the Veeam Backup & Replication console as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Editing and Deleting Credentials Records. Otherwise, the connection will not be established.

To change the password, do the following:

  1. Switch to the Configuration page.
  2. Navigate to Accounts > Portal Users.
  3. Select the user account and click Change Password.
  4. In the Change Password window, enter the currently used password, enter and confirm a new password, and then click OK.


You can change a password of a user that is currently logged in as described in section Changing Default Admin Password.
