Microsoft 365 Defender for Business logs into Microsoft Sentinel

Frequent Contributor

Hi Community,


One of our customers raised the below query:


Is there a way we can include Microsoft 365 Defender for Business logs into Microsoft Sentinel? Do we have any connectors?


Any pointers would be of great help.

Hi! At this moment, that's not possible and it's not on the roadmap apparently - according to Microsoft.

Answer by Microsoft:
"Regarding your original question relates to the connector for M365 Defender for Business to include logs to Microsoft Sentinel we don’t see anything in the M365 Roadmap portal. "

However, it's still possible to ingest all Defender for Business data by using the Defender for Endpoint connector. The catch: you need a Defender for Endpoint/E3/E5 license, to make the connector available. So if you get 1 license, theoretically, you're able to do it. I'm not sure what Microsoft thinks about this.. (are you still compliant with licensing in that case?)
