Report with Active directory User

Hi everybody,

I'm pretty new to Power BI and I have a question about AD reporting. I'd like to create some reports about AD users like:

  • Users created by month
  • Users with password never expire
  • Users enable/disable
  • etc.

For now, I can connect to AD, load the user table (is it the good one??) and after that.....i'm stuck!!

Can you please help?

Thank you

Hi @PatrickCote,


You can connect to Active Directory from Power  BI Desktop following the instructions in this blog, load user table and computer table into Desktop.


In addition, here is similar thread about how get AD attributes in Power BI for your reference.Smiley Happy



Hi! I Hope this is still an active thread. I'm trying to read Azure Active Directory through PowerBI (and PowerAPPS), but am not sure which user rights i need from my IT department. I want to read the rights per user on:

- the name of the mailbox

- the names of the mailboxes connected through groups

- the meta data per user and group




hope you can help. 

I found Active Directory, but had concerns about seeing a field called "password". Is there any security issue with using Active Directory. I am assuming the password is encrypted or not visible.


Hi, @PatrickCote


You are in the right place.  After that it's lots of exploring and expanding the various column headers to find what you need.


You can click the white part of a "record" cell to view a preview at the bottom of the page which I find helpful.


At the end of the exercise, you'll be more comfortable using the Query Editor.
