Any Microsoft global admin service account can be used to authenticate a connector in Keepit. However, we recommend you create a dedicated account for backup, in particular, because this account will automatically become a member of Groups and Teams.

If you do accidentally authorize a different account, you can easily reauthenticate with the proper service account.

Reauthenticate your connector

1. On the Connectors page, point to your connect and select the gear icon.

2. In the lower-right corner, click the reauthenticate shield icon.

3. Select Authenticate to be redirected to Microsoft. Sign in with the correct service account.
The next backup will be performed using the correct account.

Remove service account from Groups & Teams

A service account that authenticates a connector automatically becomes a member of all Teams & Groups that are backed up.

If you authenticated with the wrong account, you may want to remove this account from Groups & Teams.
