  1. Provide capability for auditing storage quota changes to sites

    When storage quota of a site is changed the action is not audited so there is no way to find out who made the change, when the change took place and so on. It would really helpful if this action is added in Audit Logs in Security and Compliance Center.

  4. No way to check changes made by outsource vendors to various services in the Admin Centre due to lack of audit log function

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint 管理センターの “設定” 内のサービスの各種を変更した際に、監査ログを取得するアクティビティがないため、外部委託しているベンダー側が設定変更した際の内容を確認することができない
    No way to check changes made by outsource vendors to various services in the Admin Centre due to lack of audit log function


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 の外部委託をする際にベンダーに管理者権限を付与しようと考えています。
    サイトの作成申請で受託側企業でSharePoint Online の最上に役割であるSharePoint Online 管理者を付与することを想定しています。SharePoint 管理センターの “設定” 内のサービスの各種を変更した際に、監査ログを取得するアクティビティがないため、外部委託しているベンダー側が設定変更した内容を確認する運用が行うことができません。
    SharePoint 管理センターのサービスを各種変更した際に記録が残せるアクティビティがあることによって上記の懸念を回避できるかと考えておりますので、機能の拡充を希望します。

    When outsourcing site creation in Office 365, we are considering giving the vendor administrative privileges. The trustee company will have the upper-most administrative role in SharePoint Online assigned to them. When they make changes within the “Settings” in the SharePoint admin center, since there is no activity to pull an audit log, there is no…

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 監査ログに記録される IP アドレスについて
    Concerning the IP addresses stored in the Office 365 audit logs


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 監査ログで表示される IP アドレスが、X-Forwarded-For ヘッダーが付与されている場合にそれを ClientIP として使用する場合もあるが、使用しない場合もある。明確な動作や条件などがはっきりせず、SOC サービスの利用において判断に困るので、X-Forwarded-For から IP を採用するならば置き換える前の接続元 IP も合わせて表示できるようにして欲しい。

    In the case where the IP address shown in the Office 365 audit log has been granted an X-Forwarded-For header, there are situations where that is used as the ClientIP, and there are times when it isn’t. This behavior and the conditions for it are unclear, and it causes issues in using the SOC service, so we would ask that if the IP is inherited…

    I want to set a retention policy based on file deletion dates


    ■Description(内容):

    削除日起点での保持ができなければ指定した期間のデータを保持することができません。

    As preparation for legal proceedings, there is a need to create a method to retain data for a specified period from a specified time.
    If it is not possible to retain data based on its deletion date, then it is not possible to retain it for a set period from then.
    Therefore, please add a function to set retention policies based on the day a file was deleted.

  9. Export permission from all objects per site

    a feature to create a report that shows for each object, what account or group has a level of access. It would be great to be able to export a Site's user permissions. In addition, an option in the share point admin GUI to export all user and groups permissions for a site for our security team to review.

  10. Create a report for all shared files and folders on all sites

    Currently there is an option to create a report of all shared files and folders on each Sharepoint site, I am requesting to have the option to create the report from the admin portal / powershell for all sites at once.

  11. Apply default Sensitivity Labels to Document Libraries

    We should be able to set a default Sensitivity Label for a document library within SharePoint. It is common for us to store specific sensitive data within specific document libraries and it would make sense to be able to specify a Sensitivity Label to automatically apply to these files and folders. Relying on specifying default Sensitivity Labels for specific users doesn't make sense for us. We have employees that spend a portion of the day working on client-sensitive files and then the rest of the day they may be working on general files that should not be classified as sensitive.…

    現時点では、監査ログを利用し過去 90 日以内にアクセスしたファイルを出力は可能であるが、アクセス数が 0 のアイテムを出力できない。 サイト内のファイルの棚卸のため、一定期間にアクセス数が 0 のファイルを確認できるような機能の実装を希望します。

    At present, it is possible to output all items accessed in the last 90 days using the audit logs, but there is no way to output items with an access count of 0. In order to inventory the files on sites, we would like a function whereby we can find the files which have not been accessed within a specified period.

    そのため、監査ログまたはその他の確認方法でもよいので、WEBパーツの上部に検索ボックスを表示させた、ユーザーと日時を確認できる機能の実装を希望します。

    We have set the search box at the top of web parts to be hidden by default. The act of making this visible is currently not shown in audit logs.
    Therefore, whether it be by having it show in the logs, or by some other method, please add a way to check which user made the search box visible, and when they did it.

  16. Automatically tag new folders and items in Document Library with retention label if a retention policy is applied.

    Currently, folders are not automatically tagged with a retention label if a policy is applied. The policy is successfully applied once items are added to the folder, however the folder and items do not display whether or not a retention label is applied unless an admin manually applies a retention label to a folder or item. This seems to be by design, perhaps to address making retention labels "invisible", but creates unnecessary confusion for the admin. If an option could be added to tag folder when policy is applied to the policy itself in Compliance Admin Center > Policies >…

  17. Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections

    サイト コレクションの監査ログ自動で収集する方法
    Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections


    ■Description(内容):
    今までは サイト コレクションの監査ログにて自動でトリミングを行い、定期的にドキュメントライブラリに保存することができた。
    この度動作が変わり、自動でトリミングができなくなりました。
    毎回手動でログを取得し、ライブラリにアップロードすることは困難であるため、今までのように自動でログを収集しライブラリに保存される機能の実装を希望します。

    Until recently, the audit logs of site collections would automatically be trimmed and could be regularly saved in a document library.
    However, recently it has ceased to be possible to automatically trim the logs.
    It is time-consuming to manually gather the logs and upload them to libraries, so we would like to see the previous automatic functionality restored.

    Currently since the “Popularity trend” function has been discontinued, in order to check how many accesses have been made to files, you can use the audit logs but depending on your plan you can only check the last 90 day or 1-year period, and not the total number of accesses that have been made to any given file. Please add a way to check the total number of accesses made to files.
