Inventory of visuals being used in reports



Is there a way to find out reports using ArcGIS visuals in our tenant ?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can use the Power BI REST API to get a list of reports that use ArcGIS visuals in your tenant.

Here's an example of the steps you can take:

  1. Register a Power BI app in Azure AD and obtain an access token for the app using the OAuth 2.0 client credentials grant flow.

  2. Use the REST API to get a list of all the reports in your tenant, using the GetReportsAsAdmin API method.

  3. For each report in the list, use the GetVisualsAsAdmin API method to get a list of all the visuals in the report.

  4. Check if any of the visuals in the report are ArcGIS visuals. You can do this by checking the VisualType property of each visual. If the VisualType is esri-map, then the visual is an ArcGIS visual.

  5. If you find any reports that use ArcGIS visuals, you can record the report name, report ID, and any other relevant information.

Note that using the Power BI REST API requires some programming knowledge and experience. You will need to use a programming language such as C#, Python, or JavaScript to interact with the API. Microsoft provides comprehensive documentation for the Power BI REST API, including sample code and tutorials, which can be found on the Microsoft website.
