Hi Everyone! As you know, Azure Active Directory provides you a compelling set of activity, security and audit reports that you can access through the Reports tab in the Azure Management portal. One of the common pieces of feedback we get is the desire to access these reports programmatically, in order to pull the data into SIEM systems, custom dashboards, Excel, Power BI, etc. Today, I am thrilled to announce the public preview of the Azure AD Reporting API .

As always, we'll continue to tweak and improve the offering based on your feedback. Hopefully this will expand your options for working with our activity, security and audit reports going forward!
