Power Apps activity logging
Power Apps activities are tracked from the Microsoft Purview compliance portal.
Follow these steps.
Sign in to the Microsoft Purview compliance portal as a tenant admin.
Select Search > Audit log search.
Within the Audit log search screen, Power Platform admins can search audit logs across many popular services including eDiscovery, Exchange, Power BI, Azure AD, Microsoft Teams, customer engagement apps (Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Dynamics 365 Field Service, Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation), and Microsoft Power Apps.
Once the Audit log search screen is accessed, an administrator can filter for specific activities by pulling down the Activities dropdown. By scrolling down the list, a section dedicated to Microsoft Power Apps activities can be found.
What events are audited
Logging takes place at the SDK layer which means a single action can trigger multiple events that are logged. The following are a sample of user events you can audit.
|Created app||When the app gets created for the first time by a maker|
|Launched app||When the app gets launched|
|Marked app as Featured||Every time the app is marked as Featured|
|Restored app version||The version of the app when restored|
|Edited app||Any updates made to the app by the maker|
|Published app||When the app is published and is made available to others in the environment|
|Edited app permission||Every time a user's permissions to the app is changed|
|Deleted app||When the app is deleted|
|Marked app as Hero||Every time the app is marked as Hero|
|Deleted app permission||Every time a user's permissions to the app is removed|
