Hi All,

    If you mean Information Portal for Site Administrator so you are right.

    Information Portal does not have such particular report. Though user usage information can be gathered.

    For this purpose Information Portal web service HTTP calls logging can be used. To switch on it add the following lines to the end of the apache configuration file (SharePoint Information Portal\Python25\conf\httpd.conf):

    LogFormat "%h; %u; %t" common

    CustomLog ../logs/InfoPortalAccess.log common

    Restart the Quest.InfoPortal.WebAccess service after that and in the InfoPortalAccess.log file you will find the usage info.

    Pay attention that the LogFormat string defines format for each logging record. I have separated values by a semicolon. So you can easy export this file into Microsoft Excel and make filtering, sorting, etc.
