Monitors Microsoft 365 licenses and alerts based on specified changes.
This event monitor connects to your Microsoft 365 account and monitors licensing parameters including the number of available licenses, changes in license counts, and more.
This event monitor provides the following options:
If the event monitor cannot contact Microsoft 365 for any reason, the event monitor generates an alert with the alert level that you select here.
This option will alert you if your total number of Microsoft 365 licenses changes. For example, if you purchase more licenses in the Microsoft 365 portal, this option will alert you when it detects the new license count.
This option will alert you when your number of available Microsoft 365 licenses changes. The number of available licenses can change if you assign unused licenses to users or if you remove users from license categories, thereby making those licenses available.
This option will alert you when your number of available Microsoft 365 licenses drops below the threshold you specify.
This option will alert you when your number of available Microsoft 365 licenses exceeds the threshold you specify. This option can be useful for identifying cost savings by sizing your paid license count to better match your requirements.
Microsoft offers trial licenses for Microsoft 365. Use this option to get alerted about trial licenses that will expire soon.
Many organizations have a mix of different types of Microsoft 365 licenses. Use this option to tell the event monitor which license SKUs you want to check. To see the SKUs in use by your account, run the event monitor once with this option set to be blank and then look in the resulting event text.
The account used to authenticate must have the Office 365 Management APIs permission in the Azure Portal.
This event monitor generates the following data points:
|Available License Count||The number of available licenses.|
