Usage Metrics Report for 12 months

Hi All, do we have an option to retrieve the Usage Metrics Report for the last 12 months?  I couldn't find a workaround from the past posts regarding this question, currently this option is limited to 90 days.  Your insights are much appreciated! Thanks!

Hi @az111121 ,

 

If your Power BI admin has enabled usage metrics for content creators and has also enabled collecting per-user data in usage metrics, you can access usage metrics with a Power BI pro license and edit rights to the app workspace are required to.

It won't show the usage metrics a long time ago such as 12 months you mentioned.

For "Workspaces": It contains usage metrics for that content for the last 30 days.

For "My workspace": When you select Usage metrics or the icon next to a dashboard or report, Power BI generates a pre-built report with usage metrics for that content for the last 90 days. 

 

Please refer to the following documents.

@vanessafvg Thank you for your response.  I have it enabled and could see 3 months report. But couldn't retrieve for 12 months.

@v-xiaosun-msft Thanks for the leads.  Its unfortunate that getting 12 months data isn't possible.

have you enabled the usage metrics report?   It is an admin function.  And can be enabled as below.
