Risky sign-ins report in the Azure Active Directory portal

With the security reports in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) you can gain insights into the probability of compromised user accounts in your environment.

Azure AD detects suspicious actions that are related to your user accounts. For each detected action, a record called risk event is created. For more details, see Azure Active Directory risk events.

The detected risk events are used to calculate:

  • Risky sign-ins - A risky sign-in is an indicator for a sign-in attempt that might have been performed by someone who is not the legitimate owner of a user account. For more details, see Risky sign-ins.

  • Users flagged for risk - A risky user is an indicator for a user account that might have been compromised. For more details, see Users flagged for risk.

In the Azure portal, you can find the security reports on the Azure Active Directory blade in the Security section.

What Azure AD license do you need to access a security report?

All editions of Azure Active Directory provide you with risky sign-ins reports.
However, the level of report granularity varies between the editions:

  • In the Azure Active Directory Free and Basic editions, you already get a list of risky sign-ins.

  • The Azure Active Directory Premium 1 edition extends this model by also enabling you to examine some of the underlying risk events that have been detected for each report.

  • The Azure Active Directory Premium 2 edition provides you with the most detailed information about all underlying risk events and it also enables you to configure security policies that automatically respond to configured risk levels.
