Platform Updates

Power BI Report Templates

Liongard's integration with Power BI is now more powerful with new prebuilt Liongard Power BI Templates. These six templates include:

  • Microsoft 365 Users & Licenses Report
  • Liongard Instance Health Dashboard
  • Expirations Report
  • Windows Workstation Status Report
  • Active Directory Password Policy Report
  • Access Control Report

These templates provide a starting point in exploring how you can visualize and drill down into Liongard's Deep Data.

This addition was implemented in response to this idea in Liongard's Ideas Portal. Thank you for voting!

Agent Insights UI Update

We've updated the UI on the Admin > Agents and Single Environment Dashboard > Environment Admin > Agents screen to provide users with more insight into the status of their Agents. These clickable buttons quickly provide insight into Total Agents deployed, Agents Awaiting Configuration, Outdated Agents, and Offline Agents.
