Get-RdsDiagnosticActivities returns no activities, even when setting tenant name and upn

Occasional Contributor

Recently, we have noticed that the get-rdsdiagnosticactivities command returns no results.  It completes (doesn't error out), but simply returns empty.


PS C:\temp> Get-RdsDiagnosticActivities -TenantName dclwvd
Get-RdsDiagnosticActivities : There were no activities found.
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-RdsDiagnosticActivities -TenantName dclwvd

This happens across multiple users/appids, clients, tenants, and subscriptions, when permissions are fully set via RDS Owner role.


Is there a service issue, or what am I missing?

I get exactly the same I've tried over the last few days this is coupled with issues connecting to the desktop which needs significant numbers of retries

@douglind1 Same issue for me. With my admin account, I'm Tenant Creator and RDS Owner on the RDS Tenant so I really don't understand.

If you have the solution, I'm in.

@douglind1 Do you or anybody else know if MS have reenabled this yet? We're still getting no activities to

get-rdsdiagnosticsactivity -tenant XXX


Analytics is working fine, but is delayed by up to 30 minutes, meaning it's no use solving here and now problems! 



Another month gone by, and I'm still getting no activities as well.

@MS_Clouder @douglind1  Unofficial answer I was given by MS - "It's not coming back". Is not part of Spring ARM release at all. Guidance is to use Analytics, but I've told them that it's not fast enough - which they heard and fed back to product.
