Question

How does removing a user from your Datto SaaS Protection live environment affect my backups and license count?

Environment

  • Datto SaaS Protection for Office 365

Answer

When you remove a user from your Datto SaaS Protection live environment for either G Suite or Office 365, you will step into the 1.0 environment. 

Removing a user from your Datto SaaS Protection live environment for G Suite or Microsoft Office 365

The Users tab always steps into the 1.0 environment, regardless of which production environment you are currently in.

If the user is unlicensed in the G Suite or Office 365 live environment, then the Datto SaaS Protection user will enter an "archive state." Archived users will be indicated by a small filing cabinet icon next to their name. Archived accounts will stop running new backups (as there isn't any G Suite or Office 365 user to backup) but they will continue to use a license because Datto SaaS Protection back up retains the data.

The archived users will still be able to restore or export. These accounts will continue to use a license until they are manually removed from Datto SaaS Protection.

Once you unseat a user in Datto SaaS protection, the user will stop running new backups, free up their license, and immediately have any existing backup data purged from the system.
