Powershell \ Office 365 script

Last Modified: 2017-04-05
I need a script to be able to monitor when a certain parameter changed on office 365.

"DeviceAccessState             : Blocked"

Basically I want to know if a users iPhone's been blocked. I want to keep this running and receive an email if it was blocked.

The two parameters are allowed and blocked.

Here's my current function that I use to connect to office 365 - works flawlessly:

Function connectO365 

    $URL = "https://ps.outlook.com/powershell"
    $Credentials = Get-Credential -Message "Enter your Office 365 admin credentials"

    $EXOSession = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri $URL -Credential $Credentials -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection -Name "Exchange Online"

    Import-PSSession $EXOSession

    Import-Module MSOnline

    Connect-MsolService –Credential $Credentials
