Summary: Change admin account and authorization type used to activate backup task for Microsoft OneDrive within Cloud Application Backup.

You can change the admin account used to activate backup task, and the type of authorization. For this:

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

    The list of backup tasks opens.

  2. Click Microsoft OneDrive or Edit (edit-gray-light.png).

    The backup task page opens.

  3. Click the connection status icon (account-connected.png or account-disconnected.png).

    The authentication dialog opens.

  4. In the authentication dialog:

    1. In the Backup Name box, change name for the backup task if needed.

      This name is used to identify the backup task in reports and notifications.

    2. Select the preferred authorization type.

      Note

      Since Microsoft will soon deprecate the credentials-based authorization for their Microsoft 365 services, we do not recommend using it.

      If you use Microsoft 365 multi-factor authentication, you need to use OAuth-based authorization.

      CAB automatically assigns admin permissions to OneDrive sites when using Microsoft 365 admin account.

    3. In the OneDrive URL box, change URL address of the root OneDrive domain if needed.

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

    Once you complete authorization, you will be redirected to the backup task page again.
