Monitoring - Semantic Model downloads

Hi All,

 

Is there anywhere or any method to track users that have downloaded a semantic model from the service?

 

Regards,

Mathew

Hi @101Mathew ,

Unfortunately, Power BI Service doesn't offer a built-in way to directly track users who downloaded a semantic model (.pbix file).
Even though if we move to Audit logs provide a more holistic view of model interaction, not specific downloads.
If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution, Appreciate your Kudos!!

The audit logs do track this activity.  It is called DownloadReport.  I believe the audit logs only provide a 90 day look back.  The Power BI REST apis have an endpoint where you can programmatically download the logs as well.

Thank you @mohitkumawat - I don't have access to the microsoft 365 admin portal - talking to them currently - this is a rather big whole if security if this cannot be tracked
