Issue/Introduction

What is the minimum/most granular permissions for the office365 probe.
In the "Prerequisites" section of the office365 (Office 365 Monitoring) Release Notes tech document it indicates that the Office 365 user must have the Global Administrator access rights.

Is there more granular permissions documented somewhere or that can be provided, in order to be able to have the lowest permissions needed?

Environment

Release : 8.5 or later

Component : UIM365: UIM - OFFICE365 any version

Resolution

To monitor Office365, global administrator permissions are required as per Microsoft documentation.
User service accounts with limited permissions may not work.
