ViewDashboard not appearing in O365 Audit Log

I am looking to see if Power BI Usage can be had via the O365 Audit Logs.  After lots of research, the Power BI usage should hit the O365 Audit Logs. 

 

To test this out, over 3 days ago, I created a trial O365 E5 account, and pushed up some demo Power BI reports I have created.  I created a couple of users and I am logging in out with the various users.  I created an old style workgroup and pushed one report up to that group and created one of the new groups in preview, and pushed a report up to that group.

 

I see activities for ViewReport, ViewUsageMetrics, and RenameDashboard, but no matter how many times I go into dashboards in different workspaces, I never see activities for ViewDashboard.  According to information I found, including https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-auditing#requirements, the activity should be available in the O365 Audit Log.  Is there something that has to be done to make the ViewDashboard activitie appear in the Audit Log?

 

Thanks for any help.

Mine are now appearing.  I think the issue is the ViewDashboard entries take longer to start appearing when you first turn on audit logging, with the other events appearing sooner.  About 3 days (including weekend) after turning on  audit logging, the dashboard view events started appearing.  Thanks for the help.

Hi @bergjm2,

 

By my tests, we could see the Viewed Dashboard option under the Activities list.
