  • Be Administrator of the MS O365
  • Configure the MS O365 logging in the GUI SEKOIA.IO Operations Center O365 intake

Manual mode


This setup guide will show you how to generate, store and forward events produced by Office 365 service to SEKOIA.IO. Theses changes have to be made from the Azure web portal (

A. Event Hubs

As a prerequisite you need an Event Hub (e.g. company-eventhub) and to choose an existing resourceGroup or create a new one (e.g. company-resource-group). You also need your Subscription ID if you don't have a default one.

Navigate to: Home > Cost Management + Billing > Subscriptions. From there, copy the relevant Subscription ID that will be used in the command line (e.g. uuid) Then you use Azure PowerShell (within Cloud Shell interface for example): you will create a global Event Hubs, then specific Event Hub (e.g. o365-event).

PS Azure:\> az eventhubs namespace create --name company-eventhub --resource-group company-resource-group --enable-kafka true --subscription uuid

PS Azure:\> az eventhubs eventhub create --resource-group company-resource-group --namespace-name company-eventhub --name o365-event --message-retention 3 --partition-count 4 --subscription uuid

Navigate to: Home > Event Hubs > company-eventhub - Shared access policies. From there, you can create a policy (e.g. RootManageSharedAccessKey) with the claims Manage, Send and Listen, and note the Primary Key that will be used as the SharedAccessKey. Navigate to: Home > Event Hubs > company-eventhub > o365-event - Shared access policies. From there, you can create a policy (e.g. sekoiaio-nifi) with the claims Listen.

Once created, click on the policy and save the Connection string-primary key, to be sent to SEKOIA.IO. Navigate to: Home > Event Hubs > company-eventhub > o365-event - Consumer groups. From there, you can create a consumer group (e.g. sekoiaio-nifi).

B. Office 365

Office 365 has to be added through Azure portal following the Microsoft documentation

Then you need to activate and configure the Office 365 diagnostic settings. Navigate to: Home > Office 365 > Monitoring > Diagnostic settings: - Add a new diagnostic setting, and select Stream to an event huband click on configure. - Select the previously created Event hubs, Event Hub and SharedAccessKey. - Choose a name for this configuration and click on Save.

Enjoy your events

You can send to Sekoia the Connection string-primary key previously mentioned. Once the configuration has been done on Sekoia side, you can go to the events page to watch your incoming events.
