Maintain dashboard/report usage metrics data for >90 days
The currently released usage metrics feature only keeps data for 90 days. Please increase the data retention period.
FYI: the documentation for the usage metrics feature can be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-usage-metrics/
Our organization is spending a lot of time trying to create a workaround to archive >90 info. This native update would be great for our org and many others like us.
Would love to see this implemented. At least 1 year. Keep Forever is also good. Maybe allow workspace admin to set to 90d, 1y, 2y, custom, all/keep forever.
Agree, "Keep forever" option could be great!
Please MS - do increase the metrics to hold data for ever or at least say one year.

At the very least, we would like to see year over year usage metrics. We are a large organization, 90 days doesn't tell us much.
Steven Tran commented
Any update on this? 90 days is way too low for any useful analytics to be produced
Jeff Gilbertson commented
What happens when we need to see year over year. Or a rolling six months? We are looking for a higher adoption rate. The only way to tell if we are achieving this, is by know usage metrics for longer than 90 days.

Agree. "Keep Forever" option if made available will help me do many cool stuffs with the usage metric. 90 days data don't give much insight
Philipp Westphal commented
Agree, this is needed. 18-24 months
Any idea of the latest status, as this post started a half a year ago?
Kevin Palmer commented
This would have a lot of value.
Also - some organisations have an audit requirement to maintain long term visibility of who has accessed what. eg Healthcare or Finance.
So being able to simply turn on "Keep forever" would be a useful setting to add.
Grant Weaver commented
This would be really awesome. We are doing some cool things with the usage reports to drive adoption but we would like to show and analyze longer periods of time.
Agree with others, we need at least a year, more if you want to do year-on-year comparisons on adoption

90 days is nothing.... I am thinking we will need a minimum of 18-24 months (need a minimum of just over a year).
it is impossible to make a decent analysis for a dataset of only 90 days. Some of our reports are only used each quarter. How can we compare the usage of all quarters?

Another option is to download the "Power BI log" with a "Power Shell" command and make a customized report.
