How to create a Bing Maps usage report
Guides|by James Roberts|6 May 2022
The Bing Maps Reporting Tools can be found in the Bing Maps portal. The Reporting Tools help you to gain insight as to how people are using your map applications, and to also keep track of your Bing Maps usage so that it doesn’t exceed your transaction allowance.
How to find the Reporting Tools:
Reporting Tools are available to anyone who has a Bing Maps Developer or Enterprise account. Follow these steps to create your report.
Sign in to the Bing Maps Portal using your Account email, either Windows Live ID, or business email if you are Azure Active Directory (AAD) based.
Click on the 'My Account' tab at the top of the page and select 'Reports'.
You will now be presented with an aggregated usage graph, a month-by-month breakdown of transactions and APIs used, and a Transaction Summary by key.
- Aggregated usage graph: Reports all transactions incurred using Bing Maps keys, month-by-month or day-by-day.
- Usage Report by Category: Breaks down all transactions by the different usage categories. This provides insight into how users are using Bing Maps in your application.
- Transaction Summary by key: Breaks down transactions by Bing Maps keys. This is useful if you have multiple applications each
using a different Bing Maps Key.
All reports have date range filters which can be used to view up to one year’s worth of data. In addition, you can export the reports to several file formats.
Bing Maps key: A Bing Maps key is a unique string that is used to authenticate a user’s Bing Maps application or service request. This is the primary method used for tracking usage of the Bing Maps APIs.
Bing Maps transaction: A Bing Maps transaction occurs any time a service request is made. For example, some of the more common services used that incur transactions are Bing Maps Geocoding, Routing, and Imagery service, Bing Spatial Data Service Query.
