So, today I am excited to announce the new Power BI Content Pack for Azure Active Directory!”

The content packs come with the following key reports:
App Usage and Trend report: Provides insight into the apps used in your organization, including which ones are being used the most and when. Use this report to see how an app you recently rolled out in your organization is being used or find out which apps are popular. By doing this, you can improve usage if you see the app is not being used.
Sign-ins by location and users: Provides insight into all the sign-ins performed using Azure Identity and into the identity of the users. With this report, you can look at individual sign-ins to find information such as where a user signed in from, which user has signed in the most, and whether the sign-in was successful. And you can drill into details by clicking on a specific date or location.
