Veeam 365 Backup ~ How do I use the self service Portal?

The OneNet Veeam backup for 365 portal can be accessed VIA 

The web-based user interface of Restore Portal is designed to let you quickly explore backed-up Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft OneDrive for Business data in one window. Also, it allows you to perform restore operations without using Veeam Explorers and view details about restore sessions progress and results and the restore sessions history.

The main window consists of the Explore, Restore Sessions and Restore List tabs.

Explore Tab

This tab contains two panes:

  • The navigation pane allows you to browse through the hierarchy of folders with backed-up data. Nodes with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft OneDrive for Business and Microsoft SharePoint data are displayed in the navigation pane separately. Availability of nodes differs depending on backups created by Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 for an object whose backed-up data is explored at the moment.

For example, for a user object the following data can be displayed:

  • Exchange Online mailbox
  • Archive mailbox
  • OneDrive
  • Personal Site

For restore operators, Restore Portal displays data for user objects and SharePoint sites that restore operators are allowed to explore.

  • The preview pane allows you to view details about items that are contained in a folder you have selected in the navigation pane. You can search items and select items that you want to restore or add to the restore list.


Consider the following:

  • Restore Portal displays up to 2000 items, so search for specific items.
  • You can narrow your search results by specifying various search criteria using the criteria:value format. For more information about search parameters, see this section of REST API Reference.
  • You can also use logical upper-cased operators such as ANDOR and NOT along with wildcard characters such as * and ?.
  • To search items by a specific date/time, specify the time in the UTC format. You can hover over the date in the Received column to view the UTC value.
