Setup Azure API Integration


You will need to configure a new Azure API source in Backup Radar for each Azure login. You do not need to create a source for each Vault. The API will allow us to pull from all vaults located in your Azure login once you configure it. If you have more than one Azure login for managing clients then you can setup an API key for each portal login you have.

Set-up your Source

In Backup Radar, head over to the Integration menu.

We need to define the API parameters in the next menu.

Give the profile a name. We can collect the remainder of the information in Azure as described in the following steps. Log into Azure next.

Direction ID

We can find the Directory ID by at Azure Active Directory > Properties. Copy and input the Directory ID into Backup Radar.

Application ID

We have to create a new Application ID.

Name it (anything appropriate) and add in the Sign-on URL as shown in the figure below.

Grab the Application ID and input it into Backup Radar.

Application Key

Next create the application key, starting by clicking on Settings. Give the password an appropriate description and an expiry date of never. Input the Application Key into Backup Radar


Subscription ID

You'll find it per the workflow below. Copy it into Backup Radar:

We'll also need to assign a role. Select the subscription and follow the workflow below. Assign Reader as the role and the new API we created earlier.

Resource Group Name and Resource Name

Use your Vault Names. Copy them into Backup Radar.

Once we have all the parameters collected and filled into Backup Radar, hit Update (or Save).

It may take a few hours until the integration completes. The data from Azure will then be integrated into Backup Radar.
