AuditLog shows WorkSpace "Torsten"

Dear Community,


in order to monitor our report usage we pull once per day the audit logfile via a PowerShell Command:


Main commands are:


$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Search-UnifiedAuditLog -StartDate $startDate -EndDate $enddate -Formatted -SessionId $sessionName -SessionCommand ReturnLargeSet -ResultSize 1000 -RecordType PowerBI -Operations ViewReport,ViewDashboard"


Since 05.10.2018 we get back strange values from this powershell call. The WorkSpaceName is set for various report to "Torsten", even though the report resides in a total different workspace. Also the WorkspaceID does not show a WorkspaceID, but the value "My Workspace". The workspace "Torsten" does not exist at all in our environment.


Does anyone have an idea where that comes from?

Hi @Stefan74,


Did you get the same result in admin portal by the way as the document? Based on my test, I cannot reproduce your issue here. You can create a ticket for help here.

Re: AuditLog shows WorkSpace "Torsten"

Morning Frank,


thanks for your reply. Yes I did check the auditlog like it is described in the document. If you view is onlione, there is no column "Workspace", so the problem is not visible here. We pull the logs as it is described in the lower section "Using PowerShell to search".


There are other people here in the forum having the same issue (their Workspace is  not called "Torsten", but "Wim" or "Donald").


I will open a ticket and post the result here.


Best Regards,
