ActiveSync info from API?
Idea shared by Eric Tykwinski - 7/22/2015 at 11:17 AM
Completed
So here's what I would like to do.  Get a list of ActiveSync users from the server, which is actually pretty easy with: GetActiveSyncUsers.  After this, I would like to find out what devices are used and preferably the last sync date.  It seems possible since it's listed under each user for Synchronized Devices, but I can't seem to find anything in the API calls.  My guess would be under /Services/svcUserAdmin.asmx as GetActiveSyncUsers is there.  Am I missing something?
My end goal is basically to do a quick audit of the users, and disable anyone that hasn't used ActiveSync for some extended period of time, as I have a feeling that most domain admins are just adding the feature for no reason.

This is a good request as it would be useful to see the last sync date. How about making this available without having to use the API by just adding a new column in the Admin interface under ActiveSync?
 
This would allow you to monitor ActiveSync usage and turn it off for users that aren't using it.  
 
Thanks,
Kevin

Eric, currently the API does not report any additional information except for the user's name for the specified domain.  Providing additional information like the list of devices and that last sync date/time would be a feature request.  As such, I have added this to our features request and will change this from a Question thread to an Idea thread.
 
Kevin, I have also added your request to add additional column in the admin ActiveSync page to our features request list.

Eric/Kevin, both of these requests have been implemented and will be available in the next minor release.  The API will have a new function, GetActiveSyncUsers2 that will return all ActiveSync users for the specified domain and their device information (i.e., DeviceId, Name, UserAgent, and Last Sync date/time).  In the web interface, administrators will now see an additional column that shows the Last Sync date/time for each ActiveSync user.
