Adding an Azure AD user

As with Active Directory (AD), the preferred method of adding an Azure AD user is for the applicable user to log in and let NetVault Backup complete the authentication process. However, if you have the applicable privileges, at a minimum, you must have the Users — Administer user accounts privilege, you can manually add the user, where it will also consider the privileges defined to the selected user before renaming it to an Azure AD user.

When you add an Azure AD user to the NetVault Backup Server, NetVault Backup automatically fetches the respective user information from Azure AD and populates it in the NetVault Backup user details. When you add users manually, NetVault Backup automatically assigns the user the privileges that are defined for the Azure AD group to which the user belongs.

Deleting an Azure AD user

A local NetVault Backup Administrator or NetVault Backup user with administrative privileges can remove an Azure AD user from NetVault Backup. This does not affect the user’s account in Azure AD; it only removes the user from the NetVault Database. Whereas, MSP administrator is not permitted to delete any tenant user, the tenant administrator can only delete tenant user/s.
