Unable to add this user because the total number of allowed objects has already been reached

This error happens even when the number of licenses available are great in number.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How many users do you have on the relevant subscription?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
The issue isn't the number of licenses, it is literally the number of users.  There is a tenancy limit and, if AADConnect is in use and filters aren't set up, it is possible to have a bunch of "dead" objects taking up space.  You'll need to do some research to figure out where you've hit that limit.
