How to view Diagnostic repots in Power BI


Microsoft introduces few solutions to analyze your data and specially the service which is hosted in Azure, you can use OMS to monitor and trigger alerts at the same time Azure notification also a good solution.

But when I'm tried to use this Azure Backup notification feature I had an issue with that and when I check got to know that still they also doing some further development to streamline that.

Then do we need to wait for that or will go with a another solution to achieve our target.

Power Bi is a good solution and you can use this to customize and get your reporting done.

I used this to monitor my Azure backups and enabled between couple of tenants.


To start, you can go into Azure search and search for Power BI Workspace Collection.

Give the correct Storage Account name which you have configured for the diagnostic logs.

To connect to the Azure backup, you need to give the authentication key. That you can find by go into the correct storage account and select Authentication keys. there you can find the assigned key. Copy and paste that in the Account configuration window.
