Power BI auditing

Handling data can be difficult, especially without the right analytics tool. Analytics tools can help you collect and interpret data, but with the multitude of analytical tools available it can be hard to know which one will benefit your organization the most. Many people opt to use the Power BI business analytics suite because of its finesse. But if an organization has locations across the globe, they need to analyze region-specific data, which means that multiple people have to be given access to Power BI.

Providing access rights might not seem like an issue, but Power BI's audit logs are difficult to get to and require multiple access features to be enabled in Office 365. An administrator needs Compliance Manager rights as well as  Audit Logs and View Only Audit Log permissions just to view Power BI audit logs. It's even more frustrating when the administrators need to delegate Power BI auditing to a non-admin.

O365 Manager Plus to your rescue

With O365 Manager Plus, an Office 365 reportingmanagement, and auditing tool, you can view and export audit reports on Power BI in a few clicks, without any PowerShell scripting. O365 Manager Plus provides detailed reports that let you monitor almost all activities in Power BI:

  • Printed Dashboard
  • Shared Dashboard
  • Created Groups

Advantages:

  • Long-term historical data: In native Office 365, depending on the data being audited, there are limits to how long you can retrieve historical data. O365 Manager Plus stores audit data indefinitely to help you maintain complete records.
  • Real-time auditing: Instead of gathering associated data for audit reports whenever they're generated, O365 Manager Plus keeps audit reports updated in real time.
  • Profile-based auditing: Instead of going through an entire list of audit reports to find the right one (as is required in Office 365), O365 Manager Plus lets you create your own profiles with selected actions to audit. These profiles provide a way to view only the audit details you need to see, and you can also opt to view the selected actions performed by specific users.
  • Group-based auditing: While Office 365 isn't able to audit user activities based on group membership, O365 Manager Plus lets you easily generate reports to summarize this activity.
  • Advanced filtering: In Office 365, you can only filter logs based on certain attribute values. With O365 Manager Plus, filter your logs based on any attribute and perform multi-valued searches as needed.
  • Custom views: While Office 365 doesn't support custom views, you can create your own custom views with O365 Manager Plus to see filtered data, summarized data, or filtered summarized data.
  • Business hours auditing: Office 365 doesn't support time frame restricted auditing, but O365 Manager Plus lets you retrieve audit details based on business hours or specific time periods.
  • Export data: In native Office 365, you can only export data to CSV. But in O365 Manager Plus, you can export audit data to PDF, XLS, HTML, or CSV.
