Connect to Azure Search with Power BI

Azure Search Traffic Analytics allows you to monitor and understand the traffic to your Azure Search service. The Azure Search content pack for Power BI provides detailed insights on your Search data, including Search, Indexing, Service Stats and Latency from the last 30 days. More details can be found in the Azure blog post.


We'll be deprecating this content pack on September 25, 2019. If you installed this content pack before then, it will continue to work, but you won't be able to install a new one after that. Template apps are the replacement for service content packs.
