Connecting to Azure Active Directory

I currently consume the Active Directory activity log content pack in Power BI. I am wondering if there is a way to pull this report down to be able to reverse engineer the connection to AAD. My goal is to be able to leverage the user profiles I have configured in my AAD as report filters in other Power BI Reports. I have attached a template I’ve received from support staff in the past, however my subscription ID does not actually populate any tables. Maybe these are two separate issues. Nevertheless, any help is appreciated- I’m essentially blocked by this AAD piece to be able to deliver several other projects in my queue.

Hi @Caitlin_Knox

I'm not very clearly about "reverse engineer the connection to AAD".

Please refer to this article to see if it helps.


Best Regards



My description to 'reverse engineer the connection to AAD' is exactly that. There isn't a connector available, only to on prem Active Directory. The content pack that I currently consume connects to AAD but I'm unable to pull that report down to see how the connection was made. My guess is the Office graph API? I don't know, that's my question.
