How ADManager Plus trumps native AD tools

ADUC

  • Most AD operations can be performed only on the individual objects.
  • It is not loaded with a built-in reports library, and there is no provision to customize reports.

PowerShell

  • The scripts will get longer and more complicated when additional filters are added.
  • An extensive AD and scripting knowledge is required to troubleshoot these scripts.
vs

ADManager Plus

  • Parallel provisioning: Create and manage objects in AD, Exchange, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and Skype for Business in one go from a single window.
  • Workflow and automation: Build a custom workflow structure that will help you in ticketing and compliance and automating routine AD tasks.
  • Delegation: Leverage role-based and OU-specific capabilities to delegate specific tasks to non-administrators.

Frequently asked questions

Why is the Microsoft 365 last logon report needed?

As a security measure, organizations often need to keep track of the logon activities of Microsoft 365 mailbox users. Aside from security, logon information is collected for various reasons such as adhering to compliance standards, detecting policy violations, and identifying licenses assigned to inactive users so you can reassign them to active users.

What are the AD attributes related to the user logon time?

The attributes related to the user logon time are lastLogon and lastLogonTimeStamp. The former is a non-replicating attribute and is updated only in the domain controller that authenticates the user during logon. The latter is the replicated version and its value gets updated whenever the difference between the previous timestamp and the current timestamp exceeds a certain threshold value.
ADManager Plus retrieves the lastLogon value from all DCs and the latest values will be updated for the lastLogon and lastLogonTimeStamp fields.

What are the limitations of generating this report with native AD tools and scripts?

With the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, you can only view the most recent logon information of users individually. If admins wish to obtain the last logon time of multiple Microsoft 365 mailbox users at once, the only alternative is using complex PowerShell scripts. Furthermore, with PowerShell, only limited filtering options are available, which makes it difficult to narrow down and find any suspicious logon activities.

How does ADManager Plus simplify Microsoft 365 last logon reporting?

ADManager Plus provides detailed M365 user logon information such as last logon times, last logoff times, details of M365 licenses, and more without using any scripts. Besides listing logon information about users with specific licenses, it displays the AD attributes of users such as logon time, account status, and more.
