Creating an Office 365 Backup Set for SharePoint

Create an app for Office 365 with SharePoint.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Applications > Office 365.

    The Office 365 apps page appears.

  2. Click Add Office 365 app.
  3. In the Service type box, select SharePoint Online.
  4. In the App name box, type a name for the app.
  5. In the Tenant admin site URL box, type the URL for the tenant admin site.

    For example, https://<office_365_tenant_prefix>-admin.sharepoint.com.

  6. Type your login credentials for the SharePoint online administrator user account that can connect to the tenant, and that is also the site collection administrator.

    If you have two-factor authentication enabled, generate an app password and use the app password to connect to the tenant.

  7. In the Azure storage user account box, enter a new or an existing Azure storage account.
  8. In the Azure storage account key box, type the primary or the secondary account key.
  9. From the Server plan list, select a plan.
  10. From the Access node list, select a proxy computer that has SharePoint agent installed. Before selecting the access node, verify that you have already provided the service account information on the proxy computer.
