Endpoint reporting to MDE will go inactive state if endpoint failed to connect MDE tenant for 7 consecutive days. You can generate device inventory report or use KQL to get the Lastdeviceupdate date and time.
Would you have any example KQL scripts for this?


I believe something like this should work if you set it in a custom detection rule that runs on a 24h interval.


It will only show devices that last connected between 00:00 and 23:59 during the date 7 days ago.



let threshold = 7d;
| summarize arg_max(Timestamp,*) by DeviceName
| where Timestamp between (startofday(ago(threshold))..endofday(ago(threshold)))
