Hi there,

you can deploy the Microsoft 365 Service Status sensors to any device. The more important part is to define credentials for Microsoft 365 in the settings that are higher in the object hierarchy, for example, in the settings of the parent device.

I usually create a device and configure localhost as DNS/IP address.

For reference:
How do I obtain credentials and set permissions for the Microsoft 365 sensors?
