Creating the service connection for Microsoft 365 Inventory


The Microsoft 365 Inventory add-on contains the Microsoft 365 service. This service is needed for creating a service connection to Azure Active Directory portal.

To create a service connection, take the following steps:

  1. Configure the authentication and authorization settings for integration on Azure Active Directory portal.
  2. Create a tenant in Enterprise Service Management.
  3. Create a service connection in Enterprise Service Management.

A DWP subscription is required to be able to use the Microsoft 365 Inventory add-on. 


Refer to the Сreating the service connection for the Intune data provider article to configure the service connection for the Microsoft 365 Inventory data provider. The configuration steps for both extensions are quite similar with a couple of differences outlined below.

The following values should be used for Microsoft 365 Inventory in each corresponding step:

  1. Assigning API permissions:
  •  Azure Service Management
    • user_impersonation
  •  Microsoft Graph
    • User.Read
    • Reports.Read.All
  1. Creating a tenant:

Select Microsoft 365 in the Service field.

  1. Creating a service connection:

Select Microsoft 365 (Microsoft 365 Inventory (Delegated)) in the Service field.

Now you can use this service connection in the configuration of the Microsoft 365 Inventory data provider.
