MxRecordReport report

The MxRecordReport REST URI provides information about the Office 365 organization's current mail-exchanger (MX) DNS records. Use this report to help troubleshoot DNS configuration settings. This report doesn't have a time-duration like other reports, but instead reports the current MX record status.

*WCF Type refers to the .NET Framework data type assigned to the field when you create a Windows Communications Framework (WCF) Service Reference in Visual Studio. The EDM Type refers to the ADO.NET Entity Data Model (EDM) types returned in Atom-formatted reports.

**[In/Out]: For more information, see the Input parameters and report output columns section.

At times, temporary networking or DNS issues can cause the RecordExists property to be reported as False, even when the MX record is correctly configured. If your reporting and monitoring systems trigger an alert on this property, ensure the trigger retries the report call before unnecessarily alerting system administrator.

Each entry in the report includes several fields of metadata. For more information, see Common metadata returned by the Office 365 Reporting web service.

The [In/Out] indicators in the fields table have the following meanings:

  • Fields marked [In] in the fields table are primarily intended for use in $filter=, $orderby= and other query options that restrict which entries the report returns. Fields marked [In] in the fields table can be included the $select= option, and they will appear in the report entries, but they will contain no useful data.

  • Fields marked [In/Out] in the fields table can be used in both column selection ($select=) and entry restriction ($filter= and $orderby=) options. When you include one of these fields in the $select= option, they will appear in the report entries, and will contain useful data when it is available.

The MxRecordReport report was introduced in Office 365 service version 2013-V1. For more information about versioning, see Versioning in the Office 365 Reporting web service.

MxRecordReport returns the same information as the Get-MxRecordReport Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

The account you access the reports from must have administrative permissions in that Office 365 organization. If the account can view this report in the Office 365 control panel, then the account has permissions to retrieve the data from the REST web service. This report requires the user to be assigned to the View-Only Recipients Role. In the default Office 365 permissions structure, users with the following administrator permissions can access this report: billing administrator, global administrator, password administrator, service administrator, and user management administrator.

Information available through these reports can be separated into one-day periods, starting at midnight of the time zone reported by the calling application in the HTTP X-timezone header.

The information for this report is available for a period of one year, or until the subscription is cancelled.

Events may be delayed by up to 24 hours before they appear in a report.
