Configuring Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection to Automatically Add Users When They Are Added to G Suite



Configuring Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection to automatically add users when they are added to G Suite


  • Backupify 1.0 for G Suite
  • Datto SaaS Protection 1.0 for G Suite


Backupify and Datto SaaS Protection accounts can be configured to auto-add users that have been newly added to most G Suite domain accounts. When configured, Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection checks for new users in the G Suite domain once per day, then automatically adds them to Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection and start their initial backups.

We also allow you to turn on auto-add for specific Organizational Units (OUs) only. This can be configured from the Account Settings section of the application.


Configuring auto-add for all users

1. From the Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection status page, click the account name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, then select Account settings from the drop-down menu.

Configuring auto-add for specific OUs

If you configure auto-add for new users in specific organizational units, only members of those OUs will be automatically imported; New users outside of the selected OUs must be manually added to Backupfy/Datto SaaS Protection. 

1. Follow steps 1 and 2 above.

2. Select the checkbox next to each OU you wish to set for auto-add.

If you set the auto-add user setting then your billing will also be increased automatically for each user added.
