  • To enable audit logging via Powershell
To enable audit logging through Admin Center

You can use the Security & Compliance Center to turn on audit log search in Microsoft 365. It may take several hours after you turn on audit log search before you can return results when you search the audit log. You must be assigned the Audit Logs role in Exchange Online to turn on audit log search.

  1. Navigate to, and navigate to the Admin center on the left side.
  2. On the left side, click Show All.
  3. Click Compliance tab to open Microsoft Purview.
  4. In Microsoft Purview, select Audit.
    A banner is displayed saying that auditing must be turned on to record user and admin activity.
  5. Click Turn on auditing.
    The banner is updated to say the audit log is being prepared and may take a few hours, before taking full effect. (This could result in this integration not working right away.)

If you don't see the Turn on auditing banner at the top, that means auditing is already enabled.

If you find any issues using the above instructions, you can also use Exchange Powershell to enable auditing for your tenant, .

  1. Connect to Exchange Online Powershell.
  2. Run the following Powershell command to turn on auditing.
    Set-AdminAuditLogConfig -UnifiedAuditLogIngestionEnabled $true 
  3. A message displays, saying that it may take up to 60 minutes for the changes to take effect.
