Nova is a modular solution. There are two types of service accounts that have different requirements for the process to run smoothly, and it’s recommended that each module has a separate service account.
To easily spot that an account is used by Nova, the service account should be named the same way.

This is for a service account to fetch data for the Reporting module. It needs to read data from the O365 tenant only.

Details with requirements for this service account are detailed in this KB.
The service account names featured here are just recommendations. If a customer has a different naming policy, they should follow that policy instead.
