Monitor with the CoE Power BI dashboard

With the Monitor section of the Center of Excellence (CoE) Power BI dashboard, you can query basic inventory (environments, apps, flows, makers, connectors, and audit logs) to monitor usage across your entire tenant and within each environment. These reports also support drill-downs and filtering, for example by maker department/country/city, connector usage, or premium feature usage.

Overview

The Overview – Power Apps, Power Automate and Chatbots page provides you with a tenant-wide overview of resources:

  • Total number of environments (and environments created this month)

  • Total number of environment makers

  • Total number of custom connectors

  • Total number of apps, app makers, and apps created this month

  • Total number of flows, flow makers, and flows created this month

  • Total number of bots, bot makers, and bots created this month

The visualizations highlight environments and makers that have the most resources, and show a map of where your makers are based.
