custom usage metrics data relationship

I followed these instrucions to create a custom dashboard to view usage metrics on all reports.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-usage-metrics#see-all-workspace-usage-metrics

The tables seem self-explanatory except I can't figure out how the Users get matched to the Views.  It seems like there should be a UserGuid field in Views but there isn't.  All of the visuals with User information matched to the Views table seems extremely slow to update when a filter is changed.  Also, it seems like the count of any field in Views should match the measure ViewsCount but ViewsCount is always higher.

I'd like to fully understand the data so I can make a meaningful dashboard and answer any questions our users may have.  Can anyone explain how the tables are linked together and how the measures are calculated?

 

Also, there's no way to export this to Power BI Desktop, correct?

Hi @lgroger ,

 

We can connect it in Power BI Desktop and create measure with LiveConnect Mode Based on this document.

You can find the hidden UserGUID column in View Table when you create measure in Power BI Desktop.

Views has relationship with 'Users' by UserGuid Column and relationship with 'Reports' with ReportGuid Column.

 

The result of measure ViewsCount is as same as the sum of  'Views'[GranularViewsCount], each row in Views table contain user view how much Granular Views in which page of special report
