Global admin permissions

The Microsoft 365 service account used to handle the backup must be assigned the Global administrator role.

If needed, the Global admin role can be removed from the user after the connector is created.

Third-party application access for each organization

Sign in to Azure DevOps and select Organization settings > Policies. Then enable Third-party application access via OAuth. Repeat for each organization.
