Configuring Azure AD Application Settings

For data restore using Azure AD application, do the following to configure the application settings in Microsoft Azure:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Go to Azure Active Directory > App registrations, and select an application.
  3. Select Authentication > Advanced settings > Allow public client flows and set the Enable the following mobile and desktop flows option to Yes. For more information on application settings, see this Microsoft article.

Keep in mind that this option is unavailable in Microsoft Azure for legacy Germany region. In this region, you must register Azure AD applications used for backup and restore as applications of the Public client/Native type.

  1. Select Authentication > Platform configurations > Add a platform > Configure platforms > Mobile and desktop applications and specify a redirect URI for the application. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

When creating a new Azure AD application automatically, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 specifies http://localhost as a redirect URI.
