Monitor with the CoE Power BI dashboard
The Monitor section of the Center of Excellence (CoE) Power BI dashboard gives you the ability to 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 – Power Apps and Power Automate
The Overview – Power Apps and Power Automate 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
The visualizations highlight environments and makers that have the most resources, and show a map of where your makers are based.
The Environments page shows you how many environments, environment makers, and Common Data Service instances you have.
The graphs visualize:
Environment creation trend by environment type
Number of resources per environment
Number of environments by type
Top environment creators
The filters allow you to drill down and analyze specific environment types, maker trends, and changes over time through a filter on the Environment Created date.
The Apps page provides an overview of apps in your environment:
Total Number of Apps
Total Number of Apps created this month
Total Number of App Makers
Total Number of Canvas Apps and Model Driven Apps
Number of Production Apps (The definition of a Production App is 50 active sessions or active sessions by five unique users for the same app in a month.)
On the graphs, you'll be able to see your app creation trend, your top active departments, and environments that have the largest number of apps. A list view of all apps enables you to sort your apps by unique users, sessions, users and groups shared with, and last launched date.
Filters on this page can help you narrow down this view by app owner, app display name, environment, maker department, or connector used.
The Flows page provides an overview of apps in your environment:
Total Number of Flows
Total Number of Flows created this month
Total Number of Flow Makers
Total Number of Suspended and Stopped Flows
Through visuals, you'll be able to see your flow creation trend, your top active departments, and top environments. A list view of all flows enables you to sort your flows by number of actions in a flow, flow creator, and flow state.
Filters on this page can help you narrow down this view by flow owner, flow display name, environment, maker department, or connector used.
The Custom Connectors page helps you understand what custom connectors you have, what endpoints they're connecting to, and which resources are using the custom connector.
Next to the total number of custom connectors and number of test connectors (those that have the word Test in the display name), you'll also see a connector creation trend, top connector makers, and the link between a connector and its consuming flow or app.
Filters help you narrow down the view by connector creator, environment, or created date.
The Connections page shows which resources and makers are using which connectors and—at a high level—which resources and makers are using premium features.
The filters on this page are:
Connector tier (premium or standard)
Connector (Office 365 Users, Common Data Service, Azure AD)
The visuals then show you a list of all apps, flows, and makers using the tier or connector specified, in addition to the number of connections for the filters specified.
The Virtual Agents page provides an overview of bots in your environment:
Total Number of Bots
Total Number of Bots created this month
Total Number of Bot Makers
Total Number of Published Bots
Through visuals, you'll be able to see your bot creation trend, your top active departments, and top environments. A list view of all flows enables you to sort your flows by number of components and flows in a bot, bot maker, and bot state. You can also view last launched date of the bot, as well as total number of sessions.
Filters on this page can help you narrow down this view by environment and by maker.
