The miscellaneous device events or DeviceEvents table in the advanced hunting schema contains information about various event types, including events triggered by security controls, such as Windows Defender Antivirus and exploit protection. Use this reference to construct queries that return information from this table.

Tip

For detailed information about the events types (ActionType values) supported by a table, use the built-in schema reference available in the Defender for Cloud.

For information on other tables in the advanced hunting schema, see the advanced hunting reference.
