In order to start collecting logs from Office 365, Perch needs to ensure that the Office 365 instance has logs and that we are able to ingest them properly. The “Test” button will handle this when clicked.
NOTE: It may take up to 24 hours for Microsoft to configure your tenant after authorization, during which verification may fail.
As per Microsoft, there is no guaranteed maximum latency for notification delivery (in other words, no SLA). Microsoft Support’s experience has been that most notifications are sent within one hour of the event. Often the latency is much shorter, but often it’s longer as well. This varies somewhat from workload to workload, but a general rule is that most notifications will be delivered within 24 hours of the originating event.
If at anytime after setup you feel the need to test that your Office 365 integration is still working as expected, simply click the “Test” button again.
Like all Perch integrations, you can enable or disable Office 365 log ingestion at any time by toggling the switch from “OFF” ( gray ) to “ON” ( purple ), or the other way around.
When disabling Office 365 log ingestion, your configuration is preserved so you will not have to reauthorize Perch when you would like to re-enable it.
