You can configure Azure AD applications for Microsoft 365 organizations added using modern app-only authentication to minimize throttling when backing up Microsoft SharePoint Online and Microsoft OneDrive for Business data. You can add existing applications to the backup configuration or create new applications in your Azure Active Directory using Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 capabilities.
Consider the following:
- Using multiple applications may impact the performance of your production SharePoint environment. For more information, see Impact of Multiple Backup Applications on Performance.
This functionality will be deprecated in future versions of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365.
- For security purposes, data exchange between applications in Azure and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is maintained using SSL certificates only; you cannot use an Azure AD application secret.
- For Microsoft 365 organizations added using either basic authentication or modern authentication method with legacy protocols allowed, you use backup accounts instead. For more information, see Backup Accounts.
