Analyzing your Office 365 outages and health performance data is easy with Power BI and the Office365Mon content pack. Power BI retrieves your data, including outages and health probes, then builds an out-of-box dashboard and reports based on that data.
Connect to the Office365Mon content pack for Power BI.
Note: An Office365Mon admin account is required to connect and load the Power BI content pack.
Select Get Data at the bottom of the left navigation pane.
In the Services box, select Get.
Select Office365Mon > Get.
For Authentication Method, select oAuth2 > Sign In.
When prompted, enter your Office365Mon admin credentials and follow the authentication process.
After Power BI imports the data you will see a new dashboard, report, and dataset in the left navigation pane. New items are marked with a yellow asterisk *, select the Office365Mon entry.
Try asking a question in the Q&A box at the top of the dashboard
Change the tiles in the dashboard.
Select a tile to open the underlying report.
While your dataset will be schedule to refreshed daily, you can change the refresh schedule or try refreshing it on demand using Refresh Now
If you get a "login failed" error after using your Office365Mon subscription credentials to login, then the account you are using doesn't have permissions to retrieve the Office365Mon data from your account. Verify it is an admin account and try again.
