GDPR audit log

We need to log info shown in PowerBI reports when they include personal identification.

 

The reports includes filters so it is only the actually shown info that we needs to log.

 

How do we do that, is there a way to write to the PowerBI activity log or any other eventlogs/datasinks?

Hi @jcu ,

 

There are some log activities within Power BI and within O365 itself.  These links may be helpful:

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!

The two logged/autited activities that would solve my problem, are these IF they also logs the actual content the user viewed

Is that the case?

 

I could fear that it only logs the tile og reportname but not the actual content

Thx.  

 

That seems not to detail what the user viewed, merely that a report was viewed ?

Hi @jcu ,

 

Try to check the 'Detail' column of your logs.
