Planning ways to develop your CSP business includes understanding how your customers use their Microsoft products. You have several options for gathering data in Partner Center, and you can gather data on both your business and on if and how your customers are using the licenses they've purchased. If you are in the CSP direct model, you have the opportunity to install and use the Partner Center Analytics app for Power BI to gather additional data.

Access to user analytics

In Partner Center, only the MPN partner admin has access to user analytics. If someone in your company needs this access (for example, a billing admin), you can grant it by assigning that person the MPN Partner Admin role.


To grant access, you must be an MPN partner admin.
