Yammer’s new auditing and reporting capabilities

Yammer is now covered by the Office 365 Trust Center. As part of the Office 365 Trust Center, Yammer complies with international and regional standards such as the Office 365 Data Processing Agreement with European Union Model Clauses (DPA with EUMC), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Office 365 Business Associate Agreement (HIPAA BAA), ISO 27001, ISO 27018, Section 508 for web accessibility, and SSAE 16 SOC 2 report. We also recently announced an update to the Yammer apps for iOS and Android that allows IT administrators to protect their corporate data using mobile application management (MAM) controls in Microsoft Intune.

Auditing and reporting across various user and admin activities

The Office 365 Management Activity API is a RESTful API that already provides visibility into user and admin transactions across SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Azure Active Directory. The Office 365 Security & Compliance Center aggregates these transactions into a single searchable log. Today, were pleased to announce our plans to include Yammer user and admin transactions in both the Office 365 Management Activity API and the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.

More than 25 different Yammer operations spanning five categories will be made available for auditing:

  • Usersincluding activating a user, suspending a user and deleting a user.
  • Groupsincluding creating a group, adding a member to a group and deleting a group.
  • Filesincluding creating a file, viewing a file and deleting a file.
  • Adminsincluding exporting data, triggering private content mode and forcing all users to log out.
  • Network settingsincluding changing network usage policy and changing data retention policy.

Using the Office 365 Management Activity API to audit Yammer data

To get to the Yammer reports, open the Security & Compliance Center from the Office 365 Admin Center, then click the Search & investigation tab and select Audit log search. Currently, audit history is retained for 90 days, and admins can export results to a CSV file for additional reporting in Excel.
