Step 6. Check Account Permissions

[This step applies only if you have selected the Specify existing service account option at the Type step of the wizard]

At the Permissions Check step of the wizard, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will verify whether the new service account has all the permissions required to access Azure resources that you want to protect. For more information on the required permissions, see Service Account Permissions.

If any of the permission checks fail, do the following:

  1. Click Export. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will save the .JSON file with the full list of all required permissions to the default download directory on the local machine.
  2. Use the downloaded file to create a custom role in Microsoft Azure as described in Microsoft Docs.
  3. Assign the created role to the Azure AD Application associated with the new service account as described in Microsoft Docs.

To make sure that the missing permissions have been successfully granted, click Recheck.
