We are looking to generate an audit log report(s) for entire SharePoint Online Tenant. Could someone provide guidance on how we can accomplish this? Specifically, I'm interested in obtaining information related to all usage including permissions/sharing/Deletions etc. within our SharePoint online Tenant. Any assistance or examples would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The best solution for this would be to use Microsoft Purview's audit log functionality. Purview can provide comprehensive audit logs for all SharePoint sites in your tenant.

  2. Sign in using your work or school account.
  3. In the left pane of the Microsoft Purview compliance portal, select Audit.
  4. Under Activities, select SharePoint.
  5. Select a date and time range to find the audit log events that occurred within that period.
  6. Select Search to run the search.
  7. When the search is finished running and the results are displayed, select Export results > Download all results. After you select the export option, a message at the bottom of the window prompts you to open or save the CSV file.
