Power BI Report Server - Get number of User Sessions/ Report Views/ Frequency of Usage for a Report


As I can see, there is no specific field that tracks User Sessions on Power BI Report Server.

There is no log out option for the user on the web-portal either.

Similarly, I found the logs very confusing and I m not sure if the approach taken to count total number of Report Views is Correct.


I m inferring count of distinct execution ids where ItemAction != "SaveToCatalog" and  != "DataRefresh" from ExecutionLog3 as total number of Report Views. Is this correct?


I intend to track the frequency of access to a report by users and track the total number of views by each user.


Is there a way I can get the total number of user sessions and frequency of usage.


Thanks & regards,

I created several stored procedures and built a report dashboard that would display this information.  I scripted out the stored procedures and was going to upload them but I do not see that option.  Send me an email and I will send them to you.



Please, would be wery helpful !
