  1. Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API

    The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!

    • Microsoft Word POWER BI Add-on

      Other than the Devscope Power BI addon which does not work the way I expected, Can Microsoft provide a POWER BI Add-on which allows us to insert or copy a particular visual into the word document? I'd like to copy paste a particular chart/graph from power BI web/desktop like we can copy graphs from Excel into Word. I tried to export the Power BI report into a powerpoint file but since we have over 15 pages in this PBI Report this was not allowed.

      Surely Microsoft can provide this integration between their own products?

      I have been using Snagit to…

      • power bi embedded printing

        For Power BI Embedded, i would like to see a facility to print a dashboard page (not the whole report) to PDF.

        My user group regularly asks about this. Using Snipping Tool is not really good enough.

        My dashboard has 20 pages so printing the whole report to PDF would not work.

          • Rest API Apps list and specific App contents (reports, dashboards, users)

            I've been using the Power BI REST API to get the list of reports/datasets/dashboards/tiles/members/etc.), but don't see any option to get the list of Apps and the contents of a specific App (reports, dashboards, app members).

            Please add this to the REST API!

            We really need the Apps list and app contents (reports list, etc) and security information (members that have access to a specific App).

            Thanks!

              • Refresh API

                There are quite a few features that would be nice to be consolidated into a refresh API update. Top three:

                1. Configure refresh schedule from API
                2. Retrieve refresh schedule from API
                3. Turn on/off refresh schedule from API

                Retrieving the refresh schedule along with the refresh history will allow for schedule optimization in a premium environment.

                    • Show Bookmarks pane when embedded in Teams

                      When viewing PowerBI inside a Tab in Teams, it would be great to see the Bookmarks pane.

                          • Custom Power BI Themes should have provision to publish via Rest APIs.

                            Currently only importing Custom Theme Json through Power BI Desktop is possible, But we need provision to publish these custom themes via rest APIs /Power Shell cmdlets.. so that for Mutli tenant environment it can be deployed automatically by embedding code into CICD setup

                            • Cannot use APIs for Data Refresh in PBIS

                              We are using APIs in PBIX to get data and the refreshes work. When we upload to PBIS to run and refresh out models in the cloud, the same APIs and M Queries do not work for all our APIs, specifically those with multiple query parameters in the APIS.

                              We are an ISV and we want to have multi-tenant (workspace) architecture and refresh our models multiple times a day.

                              We need APIs on scheduled refresh.

                              Some APIs work (we had to put all relative paths in the main URL), but some cannot connect based on security/truest authentication.

                                A report developed in Power APP and embedded it with Power BI is working perfectly in Chrome and Edge browser but showing blank page in IE 11 Browser.
                                Most companies still using IE as default browser. This compatibility issue need to be fix.

                                  It is important to also increase export limit.

                                    • Using Api Refresh we need response.

                                        • Impersonate credentials for embedded Mobile Reports

                                          Mobile Reports use rs:Embed rather than rendering through ReportViewer control. I have no way to impersonate credentials. With ReportViewer control (standard SSRS reports) I'm able to impersonate credentials to the Report Server.
