Step 5. Configure Processing Options

[Applies only if you set the Backup to repository toggle to On at the Targets step of the wizard]

At the Processing Options step of the wizard, select a database account whose credentials will be used to authenticate against databases of the Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL accounts added to the backup scope. For a database account to be displayed in the list of available accounts, it must be added to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure as described in section Adding SMTP and Database Accounts. If you have not added an account to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure beforehand, you can do it without closing the Add Cosmos DB Policy wizard. To add an account, click Add and complete the Add Account wizard.

By default, the selected database account will be used to access all databases of the Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL accounts added to the backup policy. You can also granularly specify credentials that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will use to connect to specific databases. To do that, set the Customize credentials toggle to On, choose a database for which you want to specify the credentials and click Edit Credentials. Make sure that the selected account has permissions required to perform database dumping operations.
