Power BI Access restriction

Hello everyone,


We're currently evaluating Power BI implementation in our company and we'd like to restrict or trace login and publication in Power BI desktop.


For now Power BI users connect to our databases using Windows Authentication mode.

Then users can connect to a Power BI account and publish the report(s) to the web.


We want to restrict, or at least log, which account is used and where the reports are publish. Is there a way to do it?

Thanks for your reply.


As I understand this auditing tools works for the "cloud part" of Power BI with users logged in with their company account.


We'd like to ensure employees can't login with another account (personnal, other company, ...) and publish data on another server.
