Track user acitivity for every allocated license

Hello Friends 🤝
I want to track user activity for every allocated License in Power BI on daily basis but I didn't found any way in Power BI service. only way I found is to go to each workspace and see there which reports are accessed by which user.
I want to get the log file of every user on daily basis using. Is there any way to do that with the use of API or some kind of Power Shell Script. Any reply to this will be appreciated 👍

Hi @Amar-Agnihotri ,

 

There is no better way for you to implement your needs through Power Shell scripts or REST APIs.

Audit logs are a relatively easy way to help you, or you can download audit logs and use the data to build Power BI reports. This allows you to create your own usage metrics.

 

You can refer to:

Hope it helps,

Ask your O365 tenant admin to provide you with the Power BI tenant audit logs.

Thanks for the reply but is there any other way to get that rather than getting it from O365. Is there any API through which we can create some kind of shell script etc. 

Not to my knowledge, no.
