Store Historical Report Usage Data

Hello everyone,

As you know report metrics report has limited historical data. I want to store data day by day. End of the day I want to create huge report metric reports. Here are the problems:

* I am just workspace admin. I want to store all historical metrics for workspace which i am admin.

* We can't use gateway or vm

The proper way would be to use the tenant audit logs, or the newly announced enhanced usage report capabilities. But it doesn't sound like you have access to either.


Remember that Power BI datasets can be accessed with XMLA clients.  Write a couple of DAX queries that pull your required data out of the Usage Metrics dataset and push the data into a long term storage (like a SQL Server database)
