How to: Setup Applicationimpersonation


If you want to use your Microsoft 365 account to issue restores then you need to apply ApplicationImpersonation role for either a group or specific user.

Below we are doing it using a group. 

Go to the following website https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/

Click on Roles followed by click on Admin roles

Click Add role group
