This article explains how to install Afi G Suite backup application in your G Suite domain in 5 steps.
You need to be G Suite domain administrator to install Afi application for your domain.
Step 1 - Install application
Log in Google Admin panel as a domain administrator and open Afi G Suite backup application in G Suite Marketplace.
To setup Afi G Suite backup application you will need to grant required permissions. You should choose 'Domain install' option, the 'Individual install' option isn't supported. You will be able to install the application to your entire domain or limit the installation to a specific Org Unit that you will need to specify during the installation process in Turn ON dropdown (see screenshot #3 below).
Note: Google Marketplace is experiencing problems with the application installation process in the last few weeks. If your installation fails with error "We are unable to process your request at this time. Please try again later." - please open a new window in your browser in incognito mode and retry the installation.
Step 2 - Launch application
At the end of the installation process, Google Marketplace will show a summary of how to access the application as well as a confirmation window showing that the application is successfully installed. You don't need to go through any additional setup, go to https://cp.afi.ai/ to access the application.
Step 3 - Login
Afi G Suite backup will ask you to login with your domain credentials.
Step 4 - Register
Upon the first login you will need to select a region to store backups and a time zone. Two backup regions are available - United States and Europe. Time zone setting will affect time interval when regular backups are running.
The region where backup data is stored can not be changed after the registration.
After the registration, Afi will discover domain resources (it may take several seconds for large domains) and then you will see application overview. If anything goes wrong during this step, please contact us or check Afi knowledge base article on installation troubleshooting - Troubleshooting problems with Afi application installation.
It can take up to 24 hours before Afi G Suite application is available for all of your domain users.
Step 5 - Protect the data
Configure protection for the whole domain or for a set of selected users.
a. To configure protection for the whole domain you need to select a top-level checkbox near the Resources label, then click on the Assign SLA button and select an SLA that will be applied to all domain resources. Protection for the whole domain or a set of organisational units can also be configured on the Organisational units tab.
b. User can also protect only a selected subset of Users or Shared Drives by assigning SLA directly to specific resources.
You can monitor backup statuses on Overview dashboard which provides a high-level status of backup operations in a domain or via Audit -> Tasks section in Afi control panel.
