    Usage Reporting

    Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 supports two primary methods of usage reporting, directly through the License UI and APIs. To report using the UI, usage reports are calculated on the first day of each month and observed as a count of managed users.  

    For automated, centralized reporting, a REST API or a PowerShell script is available.  

    A managed user is consumed when backing up:

    • Microsoft Exchange Online or on-premises mailbox
    • Microsoft OneDrive for Business account
    • Microsoft SharePoint Online
    • Microsoft Teams

    Licenses are not required for Shared, resource and group mailboxes or external SharePoint users.  


    Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is entitled using a specialized Veeam Universal License, available exclusively to VCSP Rental users. Each Managed User under protection consumes the license at a rate in alignment with the VCSP Rental Price Per Point (PPU).
