When adding objects of this type, consider that you can only add an organization, the backup job of which is being edited. For example, you have three organizations of different types (i.e. Office 365, Exchange, and SharePoint) added to the application scope and want to add an object of the Organization type to the Office 365 organization's backup job. In this case, you will be able to add only Office 365 organization. Neither Exchange nor SharePoint organization will be available in this scenario.
