Users flagged for risk report in the Azure portal

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) detects suspicious actions related to your user accounts. For each detected action, a record called a risk event is created.

You can access the security reports from the Azure portal by selecting the Azure Active Directory blade and then navigating to the Security section.

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.

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

To learn how to configure the policies that trigger these risk events, see How to configure the user risk policy.

What Azure AD license do you need to access the users at risk report?

All editions of Azure Active Directory provide you with users flagged for risk reports. However, the level of report granularity varies between the editions:

  • In the Azure Active Directory Free and Basic editions, you get a list of users flagged for risk.

  • In addition, the Azure Active Directory Premium 1 edition allows 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.
