*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]: see the Input parameters and report output columns section.

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 Date field indicates when the messages were handled by the Office 365 system, and are reported in the time zone of those servers.

Using StartDate and EndDate

The StartDate and EndDate fields do not provide useful information in the report results, and are always set to 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z in the report output. They are intended to enable easy restriction of the reporting time window, and provide finer precision than would be available in a "daily" report.

This can be especially helpful, for example, when recording email-based denial-of-service attacks on an hourly basis. When using these fields, you must include both StartDate and EndDate fields in the $filter option. They are both considered optional, but if you provide one, you have to provide the other. If the StartDate/EndDate pair are not provided in the query, the default reporting time period is the previous two weeks. The Examples section that follows shows how to use the StartDate and EndDate fields.

The following example shows how to retrieve a MailDetailSpam report that lists the first three spam message actions ($top=3) during the period from 5AM to 6AM on January 27th, 2013 (the $filter= option). It returns only the Date, Subject, and EventType fields (using $select=), and the entries are sorted in reverse chronological order ($orderby). When using this query style to restrict the report period, you must include both StartDate and EndDate fields. If you use only one, the request will fail. If you leave both off, the reporting period will default to the previous two weeks. For clarity, line-breaks were added to the request, and some Atom XML results were removed from the results.

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

The MailDetailSpam report returns the same information as the Get-MailDetailSpamReport 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 in this report contains the exact date and time for each event. You can use any feasible time-period and duration by including the StartDate and EndDate fields in the $filter option. Times are reported in the time zone of the server scanning the email message.

The information for this report is available for a period of 7 days, or until the subscription is cancelled.

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