Message Summary

Microsoft is releasing an API that helps Global Administrators change how user, group, and site names are displayed in the Microsoft 365 admin center based on their organization’s privacy practices without having to manually change the setting in Org Settings -> Reports. User, group and site names are concealed by default. When this setting is changed, administrative roles and the report reader role will be able to see identifiable user level information. Global reader and Usage Summary Reports Reader roles will not have access to identifiable user information, regardless of the setting chosen. Showing identifiable user information is a logged event in the Microsoft 365 Compliance Center Audit log.
