Filter by Shared Mailbox, not user.

Regular Visitor

Hi All,

We had an instance in a Shared Mailbox where somebody (unknown) deleted a large amount of emails. I'm trying to find a way to identify who the user was. 

So far I can filter down to:
Activities: "MoveToDeletedItems, HardDelete, SoftDelete" 

App: "Microsoft Exchange Online"

This is where I get stuck, I'm now seeing this for all mailboxes and cannot find a way to specify the Shared Mailbox in question. 

Can someone please filter on mailbox and not user?
