Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

@zthill Was wondering if the method of pulling O365 audit logs gives access to who/when accessed the reports as well..

I was trying to use the inbuilt usage metrics but the details doesn't seem to be enough as well as the performance is quite poor and on certain occasions the visual doesn't even load. Hence, I'm looking at alternative ways to implement this.

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

Been waiting for this for a long time, but for some reason I don't see the 'Views by User Table' when opening the Usage Metrics for a report or dashboard. Additionally, when I 'Save As' and 'Edit' the Usage Metrics report i don't have a data set for users in the Fields Nav bar as per the Blog post on the 30th.

 

Anyone else experiencing the same issue?

Yes it does.  You have to use PowerShell to automate pulling the logs

Hold tight! As the blog post mentions, we're still rolling out this feature worldwide. It should be available everywhere by the end of this week.

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

@sirui_sunim super excited about the usage metrics now showing Users.  The feature is now available to me, as i can see it in a new workspace i've created.  However, when i've removed my usage report in a workspace that has it already, when i create a new usage report it doesn't have the new user table.  Its almost like the usage report data is sitting behind the scenes somewhere.

Is there a way to clear that out properlly and have it rebuild?  I've tried delete my saved Usage dataset and click on the 'Usage Metrics' icon

EDIT:  I've checked this again now on a Monday (this post written on a Friday).  Running the metrics now produces the correct table.  Some sort of cache purging must occur periodically.  If anyone else finds this in the future, waiting is all i needed to do. I did delete my metrics, but i'm unsure whether that is required or not.

Checked this am and I'm getting the user table now. This is great. Thanks for adding this feature.

Re: Usage Metrics for Dashboard/Report Authors Feedback

Thanks for the nice update, however in our case it's so slow/ takes al lot of time to process, that the user visual times out with the out of memory. It would be quite beneficial if it works properly, even beter would of course be to see the statistics over the organization, and filter on workspace/ report/ user etc.

Thanks!

Im in the same boat now with the slow processing.  I delete and attempted to recreate my logs. They wont work now as they just timeout.

Hi,

 

is there a way to show the Subscriptions for a Dashboard in the Usage Metric report?

Great addition with the per user statistics!

Unfortunately the dataset performance is really slow and becomes almost useless when response time is 20-40 seconds when interacting with the reports.

 

I hope this is on the top of the agenda for the development team since these kind of auditing is highly requested for many customers and can add a high value when justifying investments into Power BI in the organization.
