Registering Exchange Online with Azure

Register the Azure app with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD).

When you finish registering the app, record the Application ID and Directory ID. When you finish creating the client secret, record it. You need to enter these values when you add the app to the Commvault software.

To improve performance and to minimize throttling, you can register multiple apps.

For an Exchange Online app that has 5,000 mailboxes, register 5 apps. Every time an additional 1,000 mailboxes are added, register 1 additional app.

Disclaimer: This procedure is performed using the Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Web application. The Azure AD application is subject to change without notice. Consult Microsoft documentation, for example, see Azure Active Directory Documentation.
