Office 365 Inventory Data
Office 365 is using new update channels and update mechanism. Tracking versions and update channels is an important task. The good news is that it’s easy to do using SCCM 1606 but the data needs to be interpreted as it’s not straight forward (mostly for update channel).
Here’s the complete definition of the update channel and their meaning :
|Insider Preview / First Release for Current Channel||http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/64256afe-f5d9-4f86-8936-8840a6a4f5be|
|First Release for Deferred Channel||http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/b8f9b850-328d-4355-9145-c59439a0c4cf|
Here’s the definition of other information gathered by the new hardware class. We haven’t found definition for all fields, unfortunately Technet documentation is not completed. If you have any information on your environment, feel free to share it using the comment section.

How to enable Office 365 Inventory

- Go to Administration / Client Settings
- Right-Click your Default Client Setting, select Properties
- Click on Hardware Inventory
- Click on Set Classes
- Ensure that Office365ProPlusConfiguration is enabled, click OK (remove unneeded field if necessary)
Now that our classes are enabled, trigger a Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle (to have the latest Client Settings) followed by an Hardware inventory Cycle on a computer that has Office installed. Once the inventory is completed, check the inventory using Resource Explorer :
- In the SCCM Console
- Right-Click your device, select Start / Resource Explorer
- Confirm that you have OFFICE365PROPLUSCONFIGURATIONS listed
