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 How to configure the sign-in risk policy.
Users flagged for risk - A risky user is an indicator for a user account that might have been compromised. For more details, see How to configure the user risk policy.
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.
Azure Active Directory free and basic edition
The Azure Active Directory free and basic editions provide you with a list of risky sign-ins that have been detected for your users. This report lists:
- User - The name of the user that was used during the sign-in operation
- IP - The IP address of the device that was used to connect to Azure Active Directory
- Location - The location used to connect to Azure Active Directory
- Sign-in time - The time when the sign-in was performed
- Status - The status of the sign-in
Based on your investigation of the risky sign-in, you can provide feedback to Azure Active Directory in form of the following actions:
- Mark as false positive
This report provides you with an option to:
- Search resources
- Download the report data
Azure Active Directory premium editions
The risky sign-ins report in the Azure Active Directory premium editions provides you with:
Aggregated information about the risk event types that have been detected
An option to download the report
When you select a risk event, you get a detailed report view for this risk event that enables you to:
An option to configure a user risk remediation policy
Review the detection timeline for the risk event
Review a list of users for which this risk event has been detected
Manually close risk events.
When you select a user, you get a detailed report view for this user that enables you to:
