I own a Microsoft 365 business standard subscription, and I am wondering if possible to enable Audit Logs on the Microsoft Purview portal. I can do it, and it works fine, but reading the documentation it looks like Audit is just for Microsoft 365 Enterprise subscriptions: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/purview/audit-log-search

Why I am able to enable Audit on Microsoft 365 business standar subscription? Am I maybe missunderstanding the documentation, and it is actually possible to enable it with business standard subscription? I am asking because I am concerned about Microsoft policy compliance. Thank you very much.

    Audit is included in all Office 365/Microsoft 365 subscriptions and standalone plans, you are fine to use it.
