The Office 365 Service Communications API allows tenant access to service update message data, just like you see in the Microsoft 365 admin center. This article explores how to use the API to fetch service messages and report them in different formats, including HTML and even as a Word document.
The audit events generated for license assignments to user accounts available in the Azure AD audit log and Office 365 audit log are inconsistent and incomplete. This is certainly true for licenses assigned to accounts through auto-claim policies and group-based licensing, but known gaps exist in the audit records generated in other areas of Office 365 and Microsoft 365 functionality. We think Microsoft needs to pay attention to ensure that auditing works consistently and predictably across all workloads. Once they improve the fit and finish of audit record generation, they can move into other areas, like charging for access to high-value audit events.
