Hi @srduval ,

It is explained here: 

 

Monitor usage metrics in workspaces (preview) - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

 

Customize the usage metrics report

To dig into the report data, or to build your own reports against the underlying dataset, you have several options:

  • Make a copy of the report in the Power BI service. Use Save a copy to create a separate instance of the usage metrics report, which you can customize to meet your specific needs.
  • Connect to the dataset with a new report. For every workspace, the dataset has the name "Usage Metrics Report," as explained earlier in the section Usage metrics report dataset. You can use Power BI Desktop to build custom usage metrics reports based on the underlying dataset.
  • Use Analyze in Excel. You can also analyze the Power BI usage data in PivotTables, charts, and slicer features in Microsoft Excel. Read more about the Analyze in Excel feature.

Regards,

Thanks that link was helpful. I thought i tried something simlar yesterday, but whatever I did wasn't working but I was able to connect to the dataset today no issue. Do you know if there is a way to escape the sinlge workspace and have one source for all workspaces/reports?

Hi again @srduval ,

Not that I am aware of.
