  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!

    • 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.

      • 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…

          • 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!

              • Export to Excel from PowerBI Embedded

                Please provide the ability to export PowerBI Embedded reports to excel. The same functionality that exists on PBI Service.
                It is important to also increase export limit.

                • Salesforce url causing 404.15 when paired with DUO for MFA

                  When trying to connect to Salesforce custom URL in PowerBI, it causes a http error 404.15 due to query too long.

                  DUO is the MFA (duosecurity.com)

                        • Have context menu target a single visual with JavaScript API

                          The JavaScript API currently allows creating custom context menu options, but the setting is applied globally to the report. IMO, it makes more sense to have it target a specific visual on a report. It is a "context" menu after all.

                          • 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.

                              The ESRI maps are great! They need a legend, to be printable/publishable, additional hazard mapping for Canada and ability to plot rural addresses/locations better.

                                Allow Print / Export inside SharePoint embedded

                                It would be very helpful if we could have the Print / Export Power point functionality in this SharePoint embedded...

                                Currently we can only parameterize the Show Navigation Pane and the Show Filter Pane. A show print / export pane would be nice...
                                If we just print the page with the headers and the rest the report comes out very poorly.

                                • Embedded Q&A with RLS

                                  Power BI now supports Q&A with RLS (Row Level Security) datasets. But this does not appear to support embedded Q&A as when you try to obtain a token while supplying the effective identity for a dataset you get the following error: "Creating embed token with effective identity for reasources of type Dataset Embedding/Exploration is not supported"

                                  • add a "empty dataset before loading" checkbox to the powerbi flow connector

                                    A Powerbi dataset can be appended to via the flow control "add rows to dataset".

                                    The problem is, if you need to refresh an entire dataset from a sql table, the flow control appends the data, so now the data is duplicated within the "realtimedata" table.

                                    It would be good to have a simple option such as a checkbox to allow emptying of the dataset before reloading it with the data.

                                    The workarounds drastically reduce the usability of flow in the context of refreshing powerbi when an event occurs.

                                      • Publish App via REST API

                                        The REST API allows me to programmatically deploy a new set of reports to a Power BI App Workspace, but there is no way to then Publish this App to make it available to the users via the REST API. This is stopping me from creating a complete deployment system for Power BI reports for use in a Continuous Deployment process.

                                        Currently I have to manually navigate to the App workspace and press the 'Deploy App' button in my browser.

                                        • Fix Time Zone Issue for Live Stream Data Connection

                                          While connecting Power BI Service with MS Flow, for attaining Live Stream Data there is problem in receiving Time Zone. The Received Time Zone is in UTC Time Zone. It will be better to have Query for receiving Local Time Zone.
