Create and manage downloadable access review history report in Microsoft Entra access reviews

With access reviews, you can create a downloadable review history to help your organization gain more insight. The report pulls the decisions that were taken by reviewers when a report is created. These reports can be constructed to include specific access reviews, for a specific time frame, and can be filtered to include different review types and review results.

Who can access and request review history
