Are web view analytics available for reports published to the web?

We are starting to publish  Power BI reports publicly to the web. Is it possible to get web  viewing analytics? We are a goverment entity and I'd like to know if the public is actually viewing the data.

 

Here is one of our reports:  Microsoft Power BI (powerbigov.us)

Hi @smmoore34 ,

 

It is important to note that while Power BI provides powerful analytics, it tracks engagement in the organizational environment.  

usage metrics

However, usage metrics for reports published to the web are not tracked in the same way as they are tracked** for reports hosted in a Power BI service environment such as SharePoint Online. This means that the traditional usage metrics provided by Power BI are not available for reports that are made public through the Publish to Web option.

 

To track public engagement with your Power BI reports, you can consider other methods, such as integrating Power BI reports into analytics-enabled web applications or using third-party analytics tools to monitor web traffic to embedded reports. These methods can give you insights into audience engagement and interaction with your reports.

 

Best Regards,
