O365 Inventory Gathering Failed

We recently connected to Office 365 using an Azure Registered App (as outlined in the FNMSInvAdaptersAndConnectorsReference guide (page 271)). 

However, there does not appear to be any data coming into the Flexnet Manager Suite. From what I can gather, this is being interrupted during the Import step, based on the logs below:

 Does anyone know where the error lies here?

Hi there,

Do you know if you are running an FNMS 2019 R2 or FNMS 2019 R2.1 beacon? We had some instances of such errors, where upgrading to the latest beacon helped address the error. Hence, it may be worth trying out this approach.

I hope this helps.


Hi Alpesh,

We're running FNMS 2019 R2. However, I would like to do some more troubleshooting before resorting to upgrading the Beacon.

I'll update this thread once we find a fix.


Hi @lad_denis ,

Facing the same issue with the FNMS 2019 R2.1 setup and Beacon version is 13.8. Let me know if you found any solution for the issue or just upgraded the Beacon version.

I'm checking the Beacon logs for any further hints in the meanwhile.


I  too am having this problem with O365 since upgrading to 2019 R2. Errors are very similar.

Hi @lad_denis 
It's quite a common question in the forum in regards that the connector fails in this step. Usually this could be related to permissions.
When generating the Token you need to ensure to have these access rights
Cloud Application Administrator and (,, and offline_access)

Please note that do not come in the CAA Role, this permission give access to the reports API behind Graph API.
You also need to select consent on behalf of my organisation after login with the credentials.
