M365 sensor



Hi all,

I'm struggling with adding the M365 sensor into a device and hoping someone here can help. I've created a new device called O365 and added the Tenant ID/Client ID/Client Secret. Initially I had errors with the URI but since accessing my portal via localhost the error I'm getting now is

Microsoft 365 Authorization Failed
Check the credentials for Microsoft 365 in the settings of the parent object.

I've tried going back a further stage to enter the credentials but I can't seem to get around this error and I'm hoping someone can help.

Hi stuarta,

I would recommend to double-check all steps in following article: How do I obtain credentials and set permissions for the Microsoft 365 Mailbox sensor.

Kind regards

Hi Felix,

Thanks for update and this is now resolved actually but the post wasn't live for me to update. I just have another post regarding a query with the 'Contains All' filter
