Introduction – Delete Azure AD Stale Devices
Microsoft announced the options to Delete Azure AD Stale Devices in session from Microsoft Ignite 2018. Microsoft helps IT Pro to keep device lifecycle issues by deleting the stale device records from Azure AD.
List of Azure AD Stale Device
Navigate to Azure AD -> Devices blade, you might be able to see a column called “Activity.” The “Activity” column entries will provide you the details of approximate last logon timestamp for a device.
Azure AD device attribute called ApproximateLastLogonTimestamp helps to delete Azure AD stale devices. I would recommend going through Microsoft documentation to have more details.
- Get-MsolDevice -all | select-object -Property Enabled, DeviceId, DisplayName, DeviceTrustType, ApproximateLastLogonTimestamp | export-csv C:\AzureAD_Stale_devicelist-summary.csv
