SharePoint 2013 Blank Usage Reports

April 15, 2015 Leave a comment

While working on a SharePoint 2013 Portal project we noticed that the Usage Reports were blank on one Farm, exactly as described in this article.

Following the steps in the article we tested 2 farms. one farm had the receivers defined and was showing information in the usage reports, the other farm has no receivers defined and had blank usage reports.

We noticed that the farm with working Usage Reports was running SharePoint Server with Enterprise Client Access License, the farm with the non working Usage Reports was running SharePoint Server with Standard Client Access License.

Checking on Technet we found that Usage Analysis is an Enterprise only license feature

So seems to be a by design feature, adding the receivers to the Standard farm would probably make it work, but may break the license agreement.

Happy SharePointing
