PowerBI http log

How can i get http log from report server?

I added the snippet below to the configuration files, but the log didn't show up. I've restarted the services too.

Files:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\ReportServer\bin\ReportingServicesService.exe.config

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS13.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin\ReportingServicesService.exe.config

 

 

<RStrace>
<add name="FileName" value="ReportServerService_" />
<add name="FileSizeLimitMb" value="32" />
<add name="KeepFilesForDays" value="14" />
<add name="Prefix" value="tid, time" />
<add name="TraceListeners" value="debugwindow, file" />
<add name="TraceFileMode" value="unique" />
<add name="HttpTraceFileName" value="ReportServerService_HTTP_" />
<add name="HttpTraceSwitches" value="date,time,clientip,username,serverip,serverport,host,method,uristem,uriquery,protocolstatus,bytesreceived,timetaken,protocolversion,useragent,cookiereceived,cookiesent,referrer" />
<add name="Components" value="all:3,http:4" />
</RStrace>

Hi @tfoliveira ,

 

The HTTP log is created after you enable it in the configuration file (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\ReportServer\bin\ReportingServicesService.exe.config), restart the service, and the report server handles an HTTP request. If you configure the settings but do not see the log file, open a report or start a report server application (such as the web portal) to generate an HTTP request to create the file.

just to history - it works only with ReportServer (http://url/reportserver) portal and not with Power BI portal (http://url/Reports/browser)

HI @Anonymous , 

I did this, but for some reason it's only logging when I access the WebService, the portal access is not being logged.

Hi @tfoliveira ,

 

It will only log the client who access to the report server. Please refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/report-server/report-server-http-log?view=sq...
