Admin Analytics for Power Apps

Analytics for the environment admin is available at the Microsoft Power Platform admin center. The admin reports provide a view into environment level usage, errors, service performance to drive governance, and change management services to users. These reports are available for canvas apps only and not available for model-driven apps.

To access these reports, sign in to the Power Platform admin center and select Analytics > Power Apps. Reports appear in a menu bar at the top of the page.

Data Storage

When a user first creates an environment from a region, the environment is always hosted in that region. The data is stored only in the region that an environment is hosted in. Data is stored for a maximum of 28 days. The data refresh cycle is about 24 hours and the last refresh time in UTC time standard is displayed on the upper-right corner of the page.

What are the available reports?

There are six reports available for Power Apps admins. The last viewed environment is selected by default.

Usage report is the default reports seen by the logged in environment admin. It provides total app launches and daily active users across all apps in the environment. Admins can filter the view with attributes like device platform, player version, country/region, state, and city.

Toast Errors report provides insights into the toast error trends, types, and counts per app to help drive improvements in app quality. The toast errors are errors displayed to the end users of the app.

Service Performance report provides details of all standard and custom connectors to understand performance bottlenecks and client versus service API issues. An environment admin gets insights into:

  • Connectors used in the environment.
  • Best and least performant service and the API service response times.
  • Success rates for each service to determine areas that need attention.
  • The 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile response times for each service.
  • The number of HTTP 500 error codes of connectors indicating issues around the server not responding to calls from the client.
  • The number of successful connection requests.

All the service performance KPIs can be filtered with attributes like a specific service or connector, device platform, player version, and country, state, or city to drill down into the specific API.

Connectors report provides visibility into the standard and custom connectors being used by canvas apps. The last 28 days of data are visible at the environment level.

Admins can gain insights into the number of connectors associated with each app, the specific connectors being used by each app, and the owner of the connector. It also provides data on the number of times the app has been shared, the number of app sessions, and the last accessed time for visibility into high usage apps and connectors. At this time, this functionality is limited to only connections that the admin owns, and only activity on those specific connections.

A sample scenario: An admin can gain insight into the number of shares and usage of a specific finance app using one or more connectors. This allows the admin to engage with the app owner to ensure no sensitive data is inadvertently being shared through the app.

The current iteration of this specific report does not have a download report feature.
