In-shell PowerShell commands not captured

L1 Bithead

As of at least 2020/07/10, I've only ever seen Cortex XDR capture PowerShell commands were included as parameters of a command-line process - never in-shell commands (opening PowerShell then manually executing the commands).


Enabling PowerShell module auditing / logging locally doesn't make a difference.


Is this a known problem?


Examples below:

Hi @BenHooper 


It would seem that the endpoint is not collecting the logs necessary to report powershell activity to the Cortex Data Lake. If this issue persists, did you confirm if this device is attached to a policy that enables Enhanced data (See step 10 of this link.)
