Power Platform Analytics for Administration & User Adoption

Power Platform analytics are out of box reports, located under the admin center. Historically similar statistics were available as ‘Organization Insights’ dashboard, which was a separate install-able solution.

After login to https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com, under analytics section, the following four reports are available at the moment:

  • Capacity
  • Common Data Service
  • Power Automate
  • Power Apps

Lets explore Capacity and Common Data Service in this post.

Capacity

Data volume keeps growing, and this section has details about storage. It covers all environments for available licences. It shows storage capacity under the following three categories:

  • Database
  • File
  • Log

This information (report) is particularly helpful once the project is live to analyse and have a track of entitled, used and available storage.

Common Data Service

This report is a lot more critical due to the recent licencing changes which are effective from October 2019. Lets summaries quickly what these changes are. The idea is model-driven app users have a maximum limit of requests they can do in a day. What is a request? A CRUD, share or assign operation will be counted as a request, no matter it was using REST or SOAP; Plugins, Workflows or JS.

Details about requests and limits can be found in this link:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/api-request-limits-allocations#non-licensed-usersapplication-users

This report has multiple tabs and much information under them.

They have general statistics about API calls (totals, user and entity-specific details of all create, update, delete and read requests). Details about how users access applications such as user operating systems, device types, browsers, entities, security roles and business unit(s). Highlights about most used OOB and custom entities. Summary of mailbox usage, system jobs and plugin execution.

I hope you will find the usage of these reports beneficial. In the next post, we will explore Power Automate and Power Apps reports.
Enjoy your day.
