Microsoft 365 Permissions Update

Due to our change of name from SolarWinds to N-able, we require an update to all of your Microsoft 365 device permissions.

Permissions must be granted one device at a time and cannot be done in bulk or automated.

Instructions

When logging in to Backup Management Console you will be prompted to update your Microsoft 365 backup devices with the following dialog box:

This dialog will provide a list of devices that need permissions granted.

Before clicking Grant Permissions for any device, ensure pop-ups are enabled for this service as Microsoft login will open in a new window.

To update the permissions for each device:

  1. Click Grant permissions next to the device name.
  2. Log in to Microsoft 365 using the Global Administrator account details.
  3. Accept the new requested permissions.

If you have closed out of the pop-up, you can update devices by going through the connection steps of the Restore Data wizard for any 365 service.

Backups will cease on October 1st 2021 for any Microsoft 365 devices that have not yet been migrated to use N-able permissions by following the above steps.
