Power BI audit logs - scheduled dashboard refresh

We are currently loading the power bi audit logs into SQL Server everyday so that we can moniter usage and other statistics. The scheduled refresh of the dashboards is skewing our figures, is there anyway to identify the scheduled refreshes in the audit log so that I can exclde them?

Re: Power BI audit logs - scheduled dashboard refresh

Hi there


What I would suggest is to use this API to download the Dataset refreshes API

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/datasets/getrefreshhistory

 

This will then allow you to know when the datasets were refreshed, which you can then remove from the Audit logs

Re: Power BI audit logs - scheduled dashboard refresh

Hello, Thanks for your reply, so I would have to extract this in addition to the audit logs and cross reference both data sets to remove the scheduled refresh? I assume there is a common field on both sets that will allow me to do this?

Re: Power BI audit logs - scheduled dashboard refresh

Apologies, I should have mentioned in my first post. We are using the Search-UnifiedAuditLog cmdlet to get the audit data. Does a cmdlet exist that will allow me to get the refresh history?

Hi @JimJim

 

Yes there is an API which I mentioned previously which allows you to get the data via the API or PowerShell cmd let...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/datasets/getrefreshhistory

 

If you view the above link, it will also like through to the API
