Managing Service Accounts
When you create an Azure service account to get access to Azure resources (such as subscriptions, resource groups and storage accounts) within your Azure environment, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure automatically creates an Azure AD Application.
Particularly, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses the service account to perform the following tasks:
- To synchronize the Azure environment data with the configuration data stored on the backup appliance.
- To access blob containers used as target locations for the backed-up data.
- To create and remove Azure VM snapshots.
