Number of visitors on the dashboard - on power bi report server.

I need to find how many users have visited and used the report which is on the power bi report server. Is there a way to get the number of visits to a dashboard on report server?

On Report Server Database execute :

	CAST(TimeStart AS Date) AS DayOfView 
	--TimeStart --if you want exact time uncomment this line
  FROM [dbo].[ExecutionLog2]
  WHERE [Format]='RPL'


This only retrieves report views, but not exports. If you want to see exports, try changing 'RPL' to 'EXCELOPENXML' for excel, for example, or what ever you want.

Hi @prajakta ,

in the exceutionlog3 or executionlogstorage - Column: Report Action :

WHEN 1 THEN 'Render'

WHEN 2 THEN 'BookmarkNavigation'

WHEN 3 THEN 'DocumentMapNavigation'

WHEN 4 THEN 'DrillThrough'

WHEN 5 THEN 'FindString'

WHEN 6 THEN 'GetDocumentMap'

WHEN 7 THEN 'Toggle'

WHEN 8 THEN 'Sort'

WHEN 9 THEN 'Execute'

WHEN 10 THEN 'RenderEdit'

WHEN 11 THEN 'ExecuteDataShapeQuery'

WHEN 12 THEN 'RenderMobileReport'

WHEN 13 THEN 'ConceptualSchema'

WHEN 14 THEN 'QueryData'

WHEN 15 THEN 'ASModelStream'

WHEN 16 THEN 'RenderExcelWorkbook'

WHEN 17 THEN 'GetExcelWorkbookInfo'

WHEN 18 THEN 'SaveToCatalog'

WHEN 19 THEN 'DataRefresh'

Dear Prajakta , Yes there is a way of analyzing who viewed your report and from which platform i.e mobile / web .



See images for underrstanding , first open that report in app, 

then select three dots from tool bar  above report  and select usage metrics .

and them tada ~!!! 






Hi Sujit,


It seems this solution is applicable in power bi service and not on Power BI report server. Is it possible to do the same in Power BI report server?




Dear @prajakta  ,

@ The Power BI Report Server sits on a SQL instance (the same as normal SSRS) you have access to all the capabilities and information stored in the database. the view "dbo.ExecutionLog3" will provide you the metrics that you are looking for .
