About the Microsoft 365 Licenses Event Monitor

The Microsoft 365 Licenses Event Monitor connects to your Microsoft 365 account and monitors licensing parameters. It can alert based on a variety of metrics including the number of available licenses, changes in license counts, and more.

Getting Started

This event monitor connects to your Microsoft 365 account and alerts based licensing details. An account with admin privileges is required. Before using this event monitor for the first time, open an administrative PowerShell command line and run the following commands:

  • Install-Module -Name PowerShellGet -Force
  • Install-Module -Name AzureAD
  • Install-Module -Name MSOnline

To begin, select the level of alert you wish to receive if the event monitor cannot contact Microsoft 365.

Connection Settings

Monitoring Options

Choose the level of alert you want to receive if there's been any change to the total number of licenses since the last time the event monitor checked.

Settings for License Number Changes

Next, choose the level of alert to receive if the number of consumed licenses changes.

Consumed License Settings

You're also given the option to choose the minimum number of licenses you need to have available at all times. If the number of available licenses is found to be less than this number, an alert of your choosing will be triggered.

License Threshold Settings

Similarly, you can receive alerts if the number of available licenses exceeds a specified amount as well. In tandem, these two options help you optimize the number of available licenses your organization needs to have on hand.

License Threshold Settings

Set the level of alert you want to receive if the event monitor detects that any license will expire after the 30-day grace period. There is an additional option below this one that allows you to input specific SKUs to be checked.
