Custom Visuals Scanner
Governance Tool: Scan a folder of Power BI reports files and detect the Custom Visuals that are used in the reports.
Does your company plan to disable Power BI Custom Visuals, or allow only visuals from the organizational store?
Do you need to detect all legacy or obsolete custom visuals in your reports?
You can run this Power BI Custom Visuals Scanner report on an input folder in which you placed all Power BI report files (.pbix), and detect the reports that use Custom Visuals, by their name, version, API version and much more.
You can also use this report, as an auditing tool for corporate BI projects. Whenever a set of Power BI reports should be updated in the Power BI service by the developer teams, you can inspect these reports with this report to ensure that only organizational visuals are used.
