SolarWinds® Backup release 20.11 changes how to detect SharePoint® users for billing purposes, as well as various user interface (UI) and performance improvements.
We have changed the way SolarWinds Backup detects (and bills for) users of Microsoft 365™ SharePoint. Beginning this month, for Backup to detect a SharePoint user, the user must not only have a valid SharePoint license, but also have accessed the protected site at least once.
In most cases, this change will reduce our customers’ invoices. Backup will no longer automatically detect a SharePoint user as a protected user if it detects a SharePoint user license but that user has never accessed the protected site. SolarWinds will not bill the MSP for that user unless Backup is also protecting their Exchange® or OneDrive® account.
This release also includes new ways to add and remove filters for Exchange, OneDrive, and SharePoint data, for a more convenient customer experience.
- The Maximum Value Usage report now includes information on deleted devices and customers, to provide a fuller picture of all activity—including deleted items.
- The improved live Backup register works faster, allowing for swifter access to restore point data, so customers can begin restores more quickly than in previous versions.
