Visio & Project subscription usage (from Azure AD)

Hi all,

Does anyone has experience in retrieving usage data from Azure AD for Visio, Project, PowerBI, etc?

I know it’s not a standard feature, but all users must authenticate one way or the other to be able to start the application.

So I’m not looking at measuring usage on a computer, but really to get “sign-in” data. Which should be more reliable then usage data.

Hi Martijn,

From what I recall, Microsoft does not have any usage data for the tools you mentioned (Visio, Project, PowerBI).

O365 has a portal that has some useful data but is not related to those specific products. In addition, They also have a Microsoft Graph API which does not give you the usage information you are inquiring about.

Usage data is limited to the O365 suite and some minor products (a list of products is in the link).

Hope this helps.
