With Afi Office 365 Backup application, Microsoft 365 administrators can enable self-service recovery capabilities for Microsoft 365 users allowing them to access their backups as well as launch export and restore jobs. Self-service capabilities not only remove the burden of processing data recovery tickets from Microsoft 365 administrators but also allows users to access their data without any delay that is critical in urgent cases. You can learn more about the Afi self-service capabilities and the role model in this article.
When setting up self-service recovery with Afi, Microsoft 365 administrator can decide to show the Afi application only to specific users or groups. This article explains how to configure Afi application visibility through the Azure Active Directory portal.
Show Afi application to assigned Microsoft 365 users and groups
1. Go to https://portal.azure.com/ and locate Afi application in the Enterprise Applications list.
2. Go to Users and Groups tab, then click on +Add user/group button to add users or groups to the application.
After configuration is finished, assigned users will see the Afi application in Microsoft 365 app launcher and at My Apps portal (in rare cases it might take a few minutes before configuration is propagated through Microsoft 365 eco-system and application becomes visible to assigned users).
Hide Afi application from all Microsoft 365 users
By default, the Afi application will be visible through Microsoft 365 app launcher to all Microsoft 365 users assigned to the application at the Users and Groups tab (see Visible to users toggle in the application's Properties tab). To hide the Afi application from all Microsoft 365 users, you need to switch this toggle to No.
Restrict Microsoft 365 access to Afi application
The settings described above affect only application visibility, but users not assigned to the Afi application can still access it via a direct link and log in. Microsoft 365 administrators can fully restrict the access to Afi application to just assigned users by enabling User assignment required? toggle in the application's Properties tab. With this toggle enabled, only users assigned to the Afi application will be able to log in to Afi.
