Certificate Expiration

Certificate Expiration


Due to the way Veeam interacts with Azure AD, CloudCover requires a certificate to be able to communicate with each other, however, this certificate expires after a year.

Once we’ve renewed the certificate on our end, you’ll need to run through the signup process to reauthenticate your organisation with Veeam.

To do this, you can either click the Update Link button on the Settings tab of the web portal.


Alternatively, you can sign-up using the below link.


If the certificate expires before you’ve run through the sign-up process, you’ll see an error on your job that looks similar to the below.

AADSTS700027: Client assertion contains an invalid signature.

Once the sign-up process has gone through, your job should run successfully on the next run.
