Azure MFA offers several different reports that can be used to keep tabs on MFA usage. These reports include the block user history report, the usage and fraud alerts report, usage for on-prem components, bypassed user history, and server status. The blocked user history report, the usage for on-prem components report, the bypassed user history report, and the server status report are all the reports that are specific to the on-prem MFA server offering. The block user history report shows the history of user block and user unblock requests. The usage and fraud alerts report shows information on overall usage, user summary, and user details. It also provides a history of fraud alerts that were submitted during the date range specified. The usage report for on-prem components provides information on the overall usage for MFA through the NPS extension ADFS and the MFA server. The bypassed user history report shows the history of requests to bypass multi-factor authentication for a user. Server stats shows the status of multi-factor authentication servers that are associated with your account.
