Restore Portal is a self-service web portal that allows users and operators to restore their data. They can, for example, investigate and restore data from Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, and Microsoft OneDrive for Business.

Restore Portal provides two data restoration modes: self-service restore and operator restore.

There are three types of role-based administration (RBAC).

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 administrators
  • Restore operators
  • End users

If a Microsoft organization’s Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 administrator has configured the REST API and Restore Portal settings in Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365, restore operators and end-users can access the Restore Portal from any computer and perform all operations in a web browser window.
