How to enable Microsoft 365 monitoring

Zenoss Cloud uses the Microsoft Graph API to monitor your Microsoft 365 applications. To enable monitoring, first register a Microsoft 365 application in the Microsoft identity platform.

Verify or grant permissions

  1. In your browser, log in to Azure Portal as a user with administrative privileges.

  2. Open the App Registrations page, and then open the home page for your Microsoft 365 registration.

    If you have not already registered an application, refer to Microsoft's documentation for more information.

  3. Open the API Permissions page, and then click Add a permission.

  4. Add required permissions.

Add a Microsoft 365 application

  1. In a separate browser tab, log in to Zenoss Cloud as a user with the Manager role, and then open the ADMIN > Connectors page.

  2. On the card of the application to add, click ADD.

  3. In the ADD CONNECTOR dialog, configure your Microsoft 365 application.

    • In the Microsoft <App> Name field, enter a unique name for your application connector.

      The name you choose is used as the source name for the data Zenoss Cloud collects.

    • In the Description field, enter text to associate with your Microsoft 365 instance.

    • For the Microsoft Tenant ID and Microsoft Client ID fields, refer to the Essentials area on the home page of your Microsoft 365 app registration.

    • For the Client Secret field, refer to the Certificates & secrets page of your Microsoft 365 app registration.

    • In the Tags field, enter one or more terms to associate with your Microsoft 365 instance.

  4. Click SAVE.
