Common Data Service for Apps analytics

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

We've improved how you view metrics for your organization. You no longer need to install or update a solution. Instead, you can view Customer Data Service for Apps analytics right from the Power platform Admin center to quickly view adoption ad user metrics for your organization.

Key highlights

  • Deprecating the solution: Organization Insights, available as a preferred solution from AppSource, will no longer be supported or available for use in future releases.

  • Deprecating Organization Insights dashboard: This dashboard will be removed from Common Data Service for Apps in future releases.

  • Monitor adoption and use: Identify your most active users, the number and types of operations they’re performing, number of pages requests, most-used entities, workflows, plug-ins, and more, over a period of time as you work toward your adoption goals.

  • Manage storage and performance: Monitor storage quotas, storage use, and top tables by size to optimize performance.

  • Troubleshoot effectively: Drill down into the details of your top failing workflows and API calls to quickly diagnose and troubleshoot errors.

  • Default time range is shown for the past 48 hours.

  • Data is only shown for the applied time range.

  • Data is available from the time of release of the solution in AppSource, and will be retained for 30 days.

  • Data is shown for time series at an hourly aggregation interval.

  • The data shown for a hourly aggregation interval represents the whole hour. For example, if the number of active users at 2:00 PM is 5, there were 5 active users between 1:00 and 2:00 PM.
