I have admin rights both on SharePoint online and compliance center in Office 365 tenant. but i am unable to use the auditing features and perform any actions. attached the screenshot with the error message.
The below are the pre-requisites for SharePoint Admins to have the auditing capabilities via Compliance center.
- SharePoint admin.
- Exchange online license (this is required because all the underlying cmnd are running under exchange online with in office 365)
- the user should be a member of the organization management group (global admins will be having it as a default option).
- if you are worried about the organization management role as it have several in-built permissions at a larger scope. so follow the below step:
- create a separate group with permissions as view audit log results and then assign the user in to that group.
once all the pre-requisites are in-place then you should be able to view and export all the audit log entries both for SharePoint and One Drive.
