O365 Usage report - Store Historical Data

I have connected Power BI to Microsoft O365 Usage Report App (Which is an existing PBI App developed by Microsoft). I can get the dataset in my PBI Desktop as well. Microsoft refreshed the dataset every month. The issue is Dataset is designed to store data only for last 6 months. This means at any given day, dataset will have data for last 6 Months.

 

 I want data for more than 6 Months. Is there any way to store this data someplace so that when Microsoft refreshes the data, i will not lose any of it?

@nachiketjoshi,

Do you connect to O365 usage analytics PBIT file in Power BI Desktop? If so, you can store historic data following the guide in the post below.

My Power BI is connected to o365 data using some API. The issue is we can only see one month data in that and Microsoft refreshed that data every month. I want historical 12 months data, Is there any way like we can get historical data also.
