Detailed properties in the Office 365 audit log
When you export the results of an audit log search from the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center, you have the option to download all the results that meet your search criteria. You do this by selecting Export results > Download all results on the Audit log search page in the Security & Compliance Center. For more information, see Search the audit log in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.
When your export all results for an audit log search, the raw data from the Office 365 unified audit log is copied to a comma separated value (CSV) file this is downloaded to your local computer. This file contains additional information from the audit log entry in a column named Detail. This column contains a multi-value property for multiple properties from the audit log record. Each of the property:value pairs in this multi-value property are separated by a comma.
The following table describes the properties that are included—depending on the Office 365 service in which an event occurs—in the multi-property Detail column. The Office 365 service that has this property column indicates the service and type of activity (user or admin) that includes the property. For more detailed information about these properties or about properties that might not be listed in this topic, see Office 365 Management Activity API Schema.
You can use the Power Query in Excel to split this column into multiple columns so that each property will have its own column. This will let you sort and filter on one or more of these properties. To learn how to do this, see the "Split a column by delimiter" section in Split a column of text (Power Query).
