This API has two methods to retrieve Microsoft Defender Antivirus device antivirus health details:

  • Method one: 1 Export health reporting (JSON response) The method pulls all data in your organization as JSON responses. This method is best for small organizations with less than 100-K devices. The response is paginated, so you can use the @odata.nextLink field from the response to fetch the next results.

  • Method two: 2 Export health reporting (via files) This method enables pulling larger amounts of data faster and more reliably. So, it's recommended for large organizations, with more than 100-K devices. This API pulls all data in your organization as download files. The response contains URLs to download all the data from Azure Storage. This API enables you to download all your data from Azure Storage as follows:

    • Call the API to get a list of download URLs with all your organization data.
    • Download all the files using the download URLs and process the data as you like.

Data that is collected using either 'JSON response or via files' is the current snapshot of the current state. It doesn't contain historic data. To collect historic data, customers must save the data in their own data storages. See Export device health details API methods and properties.

Important

Currently, only the Antivirus Health JSON Response is generally available. Antivirus Health API via files is currently only available in public preview.

Advanced Hunting custom query is currently only available in public preview, even if the queries are still visible.

Important

For Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2016 to appear in device health reports, these devices must be onboarded using the modern unified solution package. For more information, see New functionality in the modern unified solution for Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016.

Note

For information about using the Device health and antivirus compliance reporting tool in the Microsoft 365 Security dashboard, see: Device health and antivirus compliance report in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint.
