SQL in Azure VM backup not available in portal

Category: azure backup

I have contributor permissions on a Recovery Services vault that contains 'SQL Server in Azure VM' items, but I cannot access them nor create new ones through the portal.

What I can see when in the Backup Items blade is the following (i cannot post images):
Azure Virtual Machine, Azure Storage (Azure Files), DPM, Azure Backup Server, Azure Backup Agent

When I try to add a new Backup Goal - the only available options are Virtual Machine and Azure FileShare.

I can list all backup items using Azure CLI though - and then access them directly in the browser using their id property.

What might be the issue here? Do i need any other permissions to be able to see SQL backup items in the portal?

Thanks for reaching out! Its weird that the you are not able to view "SQL Server in Azure VM" . To further proceed, can you share post images of the portal here or if you are unable to post images here ,I would suggest you to send mail to AzCommunity@microsoft.com include your Azure subscription ID and a link to this MSDN thread (for context) and we can continue the conversation. Once we have a resolution, we will post the update to this thread so others in the community can benefit.

To view backup management actions , you need to have minimum RBAC role "Backup Operator" for resource group containing the vault.For more information , please refer this document.
