The DeviceProcessEvents table in the advanced hunting schema contains information about process creation and related events. 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 security center.

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

FileName string Name of the file that the recorded action was applied to
FolderPath string Folder containing the file that the recorded action was applied to
SHA1 string SHA-1 of the file that the recorded action was applied to
SHA256 string SHA-256 of the file that the recorded action was applied to. This field is usually not populated — use the SHA1 column when available.
MD5 string MD5 hash of the file that the recorded action was applied to

InitiatingProcessAccountObjectId string Azure AD object ID of the user account that ran the process responsible for the event
InitiatingProcessLogonId string Identifier for a logon session of the process that initiated the event. This identifier is unique on the same machine only between restarts.
InitiatingProcessIntegrityLevel string Integrity level of the process that initiated the event. Windows assigns integrity levels to processes based on certain characteristics, such as if they were launched from an internet download. These integrity levels influence permissions to resources
