    ■Title(件名):
    監査ログで MAC アドレスを取得できるようにしてほしい
    Make it possible to get MAC addresses from the audit logs


    ■Description(内容):
    現在条件付きアクセスなどを構成していない環境ですが、テレワークが増えたことで社外からアクセスする機会が増えています。
    MAC アドレスでどの端末がアクセスしたかを確認したいのですが、監査ログでは取得が出来ません。
    そのため監査ログ上で取得するアクセスのログから MAC アドレスが確認出来るよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, our environment does not have conditional access etc. configured, but with increasing amounts of remote work, the number of times we need to access meetings from external locations is increasing.
    I want to check which devices accessed these using their MAC addresses, but it is not possible to find this information from the audit logs.
    Therefore, please make this possible.

  2. 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. Don't show user PowerPoint display as "Teams Meeting Anonymous Participant" in logs for private meeting

    After a security event at a sister company, we began looking at our own security posture in more detail. One thing that stood out in Cloud App Security logs was PowerPoint file downloads from our COO's OneDrive. The Cloud App Security entries showed the user as n/a but the json details showed it as "Teams Meeting Anonymous Participant". This meeting was internal employees only. The PowerPoint had sensitive information. We were concerned we had a security issue.

    With MS' help, back-end logs showed that the COO was the user that had downloaded from his own OneDrive. He was presenting the…

    It is possible to check how many accesses have been made to a page via both the “Site visitors” item in the site collection “Site usage”, and the “Page views” in the Office 365 security/compliance audit log, but there is a discrepancy between these numbers.
    It is difficult to understand which of these values can…

    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…

    Enable audit logging of permission changes to Document Libraries.

    I've had a situation where document library permissions on the Site Pages DL were modified, breaking a critical SP site for our business and was unable to determine who or what made the change.

  12. Cover site setting changes in Audit Logs

    Site setting changes must be covered in Audit logs. Currently available audit logs does not serve the purpose as none of the site setting changes have been covered in audit logs. From past few months, we have been facing an issue related to navigation change in a site collection. Some user is adding an unwanted link in Global navigation of a Site collection and due to no audit logs related to navigation, we're not able to find out who is doing this repeatedly. This has become a major concern as the site is being used by large number of users.

    The audit log doesn't record activities made in SPO admin center> classic settings, like the "show or hide SPO button" change, which is important for tenant security. Hope this feature can be changed.

  14. Export SharePoint List Comments Field

    There is a great new feature to add comments to list items directly into a SharePoint list. Once a comment is entered there is an icon that displays on the list view. Comments are listed in chronological order in a right hand side panel that displays once the comment icon is selected This side pane provides GREAT details: Time/date of comment, author of the comment and obviously the content of the comment. The problem is there is no way to export this data out of the list with the list objects. What use is the data if we can't use…

  19. Add a way to get permission action logs

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    権限操作のログを取得する機能を実装してほしい。
    Add a way to get permission action logs


    ■Description(内容):
    監査ログの機能にて、アイテムの操作に関するログを取得することが可能です。
    しかしながら権限の操作に関するログを取得することができず、意図せず権限が付与された、または抜け落ちてしまった場合に、いつ・誰によって・なぜ権限が変更されてしまったのかを調査することができない現状です。
    お客様におかれましては、多数のユーザーに対して権限を付与したアイテムを数日後に確認したところ、付与したうちの複数のユーザーの権限が外れている状況です。
    手動にて権限を改めて付与していただいたのち、現在に至るまで事象の再発は確認されておりませんが、このような事象が発生してしまった明確なタイミングや原因が不明なままであるため、今後同じ事象が発生してしまう懸念をしております。
    権限操作のログ取得が可能であれば事象の原因究明が進み、再発防止に繋がる可能性が高いため、本機能の実装を強く望みます。

    In the audit logs, it is possible to get logs of actions carried out on items.
    However, there is no way to get logs of permission actions, so if permissions are granted or removed unintentionally, there is no way to investigate who did it, when or why.
    Our customer has found that after granting several users permissions for an item, checking back a few days later shows that some of the users do not have them assigned.
    After manually reassigning the…

  20. compare revision in SharePoint

    When you need to check when change X was done or what is the changes done between each revision instead of opening each revision separately which may take ages if you have a huge number of revision, this will make your life much easier.
