Let’s check the Intune Audit Logs Track Who Restarted Device from MEM Portal. You can remotely initiate to restart the device from the Intune.
Intune Audit Logs are constructive to track who did what in your MEM environment. Audit logs include a record of activities that generate a change and show details on each event or task performed in the environment.
The Restart device remote action causes the device you choose to be restarted (within 5 minutes). You can check the status of the performed action by navigating to the device’s node and selecting the device in MEM Portal. However, It’s difficult to identify who has triggered the action until you have not done.
Once any of the actions are performed by users, you can directly visit audit logs to see recent actions. I have noticed that Audit logs in the MEM portal are very short-lived or removed immediately from the dashboard.
Create, update (edit), delete, assign, and remote actions to create audit events that administrators can review for most Intune workloads. By default, auditing is enabled for all customers. It can’t be disabled.
Who can access the data from Intune Audit Logs? Users with the following permissions can review audit logs –
