In order to accomplish a requirement of the internal audit department, I need to obtain the list of denied access to a sharepoint online site. Could I get it using power shell?

I can´t find this option in Security&Compliance site or Exchange Admin Site. We are using O365 and SharePoint Online classic team sites.

Based on this article , if your Auditing logging are configured right, you should be able to filter your audits about Denied access request which covers access request to a site, folder, or document was denied.


Go to https://protection.office.com.

Sign in to Office 365 using your work or school account.

In the left pane of the Security & Compliance Center, click Search & investigation, and then click Audit log search.

The Audit log search page is displayed.

Under Activities, click Denied access request to search for Access denied users list: enter image description here
