Wow.  This addresses many challenges we've been trying to meet.  May your endeavours be swift and successful!

very consice and to the point information .

thanks for sharing .

Hi Jim,

How are you getting on with these above, is it true that the Office365 part is part of an additional license?


Hi Phil, these are the areas that the team is working on.  You don't need a separate license for the O365 capability.  It's included in the ARM license.

Just finished PoC of ARM and we had a very positive experience. Looking forward to the additional audit capabilities for O365, Sharepoint.OneDrive and Azure!.

Looking forward to seeing the evolution of this already Enterprise Class product

Can you give us a gross estimate arrival time of the cloud audit capabilities being added?

Hi Sandy, Unfortunately we cannot provide an explicit timeline.  Legal limitations.  .  The items listed are actively being worked on, though.   So, they will be coming!

Looking forward to it jimhansen

Good to see the horizon getting brighter in Orion.

I wish your roadmap will include in the future SQL server access by AD/AAD (traditional SQL instance/AZ SQL database/AZ managed Instance)!

Haven't seen any major feature updates to this product in a few months now. Any idea when the next release is coming?

Can you tell something about AD User/Group Recertification??

Sorry, but I can't share any specific dates but be ensured that we are currently very busy working on the next release.

As soon as the Release Candidate is available we'll reach out to all existing ARM customers; we are eager to get your feedback.

What are you looking for?


I have a question regarding the syslog part.

What exactly is planned about the syslogging? It's says alerting. Is a reporting considered as well?



We add syslog support for our alerting mechanism as additional action.


do you have any details about it? Do we need an additional syslog server or is one included in this feature?



Starting with the release 2019.4 we support alerts to be forwarded to existing syslog servers. ARM does not act as a syslog server for related functionality you should take a look at SolarWinds Security Event Manager or Kiwi Syslog® Server.

Which reports will be added?

We have a list of reports that we plan to add over time as resources and time permits.

Is there any special report you are looking for?

A permission report over the active directory to have delegates identified.

Hi Marcus,

there is already a config switch which can enable the report for permission report for the active directory. Call Björn to activate it.
