Find Power BI users that have signed in

If you're a tenant admin, and want to see who has signed into Power BI, use the Azure Active Directory access and usage reports to gain visibility.

Note

The Sign-ins report provides useful info, but it doesn't identify the type of license each user has. Use the Microsoft 365 admin center to view licenses.

Requirements

Any user (including non-admins) can see a report of their own sign-ins, but you must meet the following requirements to see a report for all users.

  • Your tenant must have an Azure Active Directory Premium license associated with it.

  • You must be in one of the following roles: Global Admin, Security Admin, or Security Reader.

Use the Azure portal to view sign-ins

To view sign-in activity, follow these steps.

  1. In the Azure portal, select Azure Active Directory.

  2. Under Monitoring, select Sign-ins.

  3. Filter the application by either Microsoft Power BI or Power BI Gateway, and select Apply.

    Microsoft Power BI filters to sign-in activity related to the service, whereas Power BI Gateway filters to sign-in activity specific to the on-premises data gateway.
