Step 4. Configure Restore Settings

At the Settings step of the wizard, choose whether you want to restore the database to the original or to a custom location. To do that, click Edit Cluster Settings, and then select an Azure subscription, an Azure region and a Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL cluster to which the database will be restored.


Due to technical limitations, the selected cluster must not contain any data. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will fail to perform the restore operation due to write conflicts on the cluster.


You must also specify a database account that will be used to restore database data to the selected location. It is recommended that you select an account that has the built-in citus role.

For a database account to be displayed in the Credentials list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure as described in section Adding SMTP and Database Accounts. If you have not added the necessary account to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure beforehand, you can do it without closing the Cosmos DB Restore wizard. To add an account, click Add and complete the Add Account wizard.
