Paginated Reports - Usage Metrics - Where are they?

Hi All

 

I wish to use of paginated reports running in a premium capacity enabled workspace, and cannot see availability of a usage metric report.

 

For non-paginated reports i.e. regulare PBI reports the following is available which shows me usage:

Paginated Reports do not have the usage metrics option:

Any ideas on how I get usage of paginated reports by:

  • Report Name
  • User
  • Date/Time

Thanks

Adam

Hi , @AdamMcGuinness 

As a workaround, you can try to use the Audit log to extract the Power BI log information (Report or dashboard reviewed), and then filter for individual report usage to obtain the desired results. In addition, you can also make a Powershell to extract Audit logs into a CSV file, and then use the CSV file as a data source for Power BI reports.

Hi,

 

You may create a dummy Power BI report and publish it to the workspace where paginated reports are located, then View usage mertics report on the dummy report. All paginated reports usage should show up in usage metrics database.

 

I hope this help.

Thanks @v-easonf-msft 

 

That will certainly work. 

 

I do think however that paginated reports should be up-lifted to have the same type of out of box reporting available as their PBI brothers and sisters. Hopefully that's in the backlog?

 

Cheers
