Failed to Import Data Azure Audit Log

I was attempting to checkout Power BI the Azure Audit Logs Power Pack as described in the blog:


I setup a Power BI using my company email. It wouldn't accept my MSDN "personal account" email ( or my government email account (.gov). But, no problem...


Once I was able to get into the Power BI portal I selected Get Data --> Services (Get) --> Azure Audit Logs --> Connect


Entered my Azure subscription (BizSpark account) and clicked Next


Selected OAuth2 as the Authentication Method and clicked Sign In


Entered my Azure signin information and clicked Sign in


A window came up saying that it was "Importing Data" and that this could take awhile


In less than a minute a window popped up stating that it had "Failed to import data"


If I click on the technical details link it shows some ID and a status code of 200


I tried this in Firefox and Edge on a Windows 10 machine

Re: Failed to Import Data Azure Audit Log

My issue is "similar", however my does "say" that it successfully imported the data, although when i browse the dataset, report and dashboard it is completely empty.  I have tried removing and re-adding, and allowing it to sit for over 48 hours, but there is still no data..

This seems to have popped up again. I had several subscriptions which had not had a data refresh from 15/12 on. 



  • Unable to refresh credentials on existing connections successfully. 
  • Unable to authenticate through the Content Pack Azure Audit wizard for any Azure suscription
