Activate backup task for Microsoft 365 Groups and Teams in Cloud Application Backup

After setting up your Microsoft 365 admin account, you can activate the backup task for Microsoft 365 Groups and Teams as follows:

  1. In the CAB Management Portal, click Homepage in the sidebar menu.

    The list of backup tasks opens.

    • If you do not have any backup task added yet, click Microsoft Groups / Teams.

      Add backup task

    • If you already have some backup tasks set up and configured, click Add Backup Task on the upper right, and then select Microsoft Groups / Teams.

      Add backup task

    The authentication dialog opens.

  2. In the authentication dialog:

    1. In the Backup Name box, enter a name for the backup task.

      This name is used to identify the backup task in reports and notifications. You can change it later.

    2. Allow the backup admin user to be added to all public teams.

      The service connects to your tenant via the OAuth-based authorization and using the backup task admin user. During the backup creation, the admin user will be added to all public teams.

      Use a dedicated technical user for backup purposes only.

    3. Click Authenticate to go to the Microsoft 365 sign-in page, and complete authorization.
