No April Data return from powerbi audit log, but May is ok

I am a PBI service admin, and I am trying to use PowerShell to call the PBI API and return results from the PBI Activity Log. I run the command below, which should return April data; but it doesn't return any data. When I run the command again to return May data, it succeeds. I am wondering why this happens? I have all of the auditing and logging options enabled in the 'Audit and usage settings', so I should be logging events.

Hi,

 

It is because of retention period.You can check with your tenant admin he may be storing the audit data on any server.

Hi @mandyyki 

 

If you are a Power BI Admin you should be able to see the data for the past 30 days.

Hi @mandyyki 

 

The power BI activity log only keeps data for the past 30 days, so if you're doing it monthly, it will not show it to you because it is greater than the 30 day start date. I would suggest running it individually day by day to get the data back as far as possible

Hi @GilbertQ ,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I tried exporting the Power BI logs day by day, but encountered the same issue. I suspect this is because I joined the company in May, so I don't have access to the April data. It seems I can only access log data from the date I joined onwards.
