How Restore Portal Works

In this article

    The following components are involved in the Restore Portal operation:

    • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server
    • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 RESTful API Service
    • Microsoft 365 organization
    • Restore Portal
    • Veeam Backup Proxy for Microsoft 365 Service

    Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 uses REST API and Azure AD application when authenticating users to Restore Portal with their Microsoft 365 user account credentials. REST API authorization is based on the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework. For more information on how to create and configure Azure AD application to access Restore Portal, see Creating or Configuring Azure AD Application.

    Restore Portal uses REST API to communicate with the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server. For more information on how to configure REST API, see REST API Settings.

    Data exchange between the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server, Microsoft 365 organization, Azure AD application, the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 RESTful API Service and Restore Portal is performed using SSL certificates. For more information, see Installing SSL Certificates.
