Discovering User Accounts Automatically Using Group Affinity

Applies to: User-defined subclients

If you created user-defined subclients, you can configure them to discover new user accounts automatically using group affinity when the next backup job is run.

Before You Begin

Configure auto discovery of user accounts at the instance level.


  1. In the CommCell Browser, click Client Computers > client > Cloud Apps > instance.
  2. Right-click a user-defined subclient, and then click Properties.
  3. In the Subclient Properties dialog box, on the Auto-discovery tab, click Configure.
  4. In the Configure User Accounts dialog box, click Discover.
  5. Add the Azure group to the subclient.
    • If you want to assign one group, select the group, and then select the subclient name from the Subclient list.
    • If you want to assign multiple groups, select the groups, and then select the subclient name from the Change all selected accounts to list.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Run a backup job on the subclient to auto discover user accounts based on the group affinity that you configured.
