Obama's administration seeked and optained a "FISA" warrant on Trump

If the Obama administration didn't spied on Trump during the presidential campaign & election last year, why did it requested and optained a FISA warrant from the FISA court?

First what is a FISA warrant?

Answer: The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

In simpler terms the Foreign intelligence surveillance act or FISA is like a green light that is given to a administration and the department of justice (FBI) to spy on private American citizens within U.S Soil.

The Obama administration denied spying on Trump during the elections but it seeked and optained a FISA warrant to spy and gather information on Trump. We optained a FISA warrant on Trump but didn't spy on him. Does that make sense?

This is the same administration that USED the NSA to spy on and gather phone data on American citizens in 2013.
