Usage Data

Periscope Usage Data is a data repository containing all metadata for a Periscope site. This data set gives Periscope users the ability to measure usage of charts and dashboards, identify table and view dependencies, track and measure query performance, and audit user and group information. The Usage Data datasource can be activated by any administrator on a single Periscope space. The data will then be accessible by any user with edit access on the space.

Note: Usage Data is an add-on feature. Site administrators can contact their Account Manager for additional information.

Activating Usage Data

To turn on Usage Data, first click the Settings menu at the bottom of the left hand navigation bar. Then, click on Usage Data.

In this menu, the "Allow users to query usage data" switch can be turned on or off. Turning this switch on will make usage data available to all users with edit access.
