  1. Groups API - create readonly groups

    We would like to be able to create groups via API in readonly mode. It is not possible to specify isReadOnly field while creating a group. IsReadOnly field is being returned on Get groups but we have no way to specify it when creating a new group. It is crucial to be able to create groups in readonly mode as we are trying to automate deployments.

    • Ability to pass multiple values as a filter parameter in query string

      As of now only one parameter value can be passed in a filter using the syntax:
      <PowerBI report URL>?filter=<Table Name 1>/<Column Name 1> eq 'Value 1' and <Table Name 2>/<Column Name 2> eq 'Value 2'

      But we cannot pass more than one value for say <Column Name 1>

      • Power BI Web API Dataset refresh

        Allow Power BI Web datasets that use APIs and API keys to be able to be refreshed properly. Currently if you run an API to get a dataset then you will run into an issue where tying to update the credentials in "Data source credentials" will not work properly.

        • 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!

          • add group user api - enable adding non-admin users

            It would be nice to be able to add power bi users to workspaces(groups) in readonly mode. We are only limited to add admin users via api. It is really important to have this feature in order to automate deployments.

                • 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…

                    • 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.

                      • Retrieve Power BI App information using PowerShell

                        Currently I am working on some PS scripts to be able to manage the enterprise implementation of Power BI. One of the things I am not able to find is retrieving App-information using PowerShell. For example: I would like to create a list of Apps (based on workspaces) that has been distributed within the tenant and the users who can access the Apps. Other information, like last updates, included datasets and reports, etc, would be grate as well.

                        • Embed Power BI Objects into Excel, Word & PowerPoint

                          Add the ability to embed Power BI Objects i.e. reports, dashboards into Excel, Word & PowerPoint. These objects can then be manually or automatically updated. This would allow users to create board reports etc with real-time tables/charts.

                                There used to be a wrapper for embedding Power BI inside Angular applications for AngularJS (Angular 1) but that one is depreciated now. It would be good to have a wrapper for Angular 5+ now

                                • Don't allow front-end config to override AppWorkspace settings

                                  There's a problem with the PowerBI-Javascript library.

                                  It seems like anyone can manipulate variables for embedded reports using Javascript / Typescript using a browser debugger. If they can change the report config settings, they can display the Save button in the report and this will allow them save changes to the report back to the Power BI service. This is regardless of whether they are an Admin/Member, or the AppWorkspace has "Allow users to view content only..." set. This front-end ability makes any Power BI read-only setting redundant. What seems to allow this is the "viewMode" and "bookmarksPaneEnabled" report config…

                                  • Javascript API to get selected data

                                    It would be nice if there was a Javascript API to get the selected data in a visual (to know wich bar / lines / rows are selected in a visual).

                                    Currently we have a dataSelected event that's available, but the event doesn't tell us if we have multiple data that are selected (if the user selected the data with the Ctrl key pressed) and we don't really know when the data is unselected.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Disable 'Save' feature when an embedded report is opened in 'Edit' mode

                                      I have reports that I am embedding in a webapp that I would like to allow users to be able to edit. However, I want to hide the 'Save' feature and only allow the 'Save As' option so that when a user saves an edit, it doesn't overwrite the same report other users can already see, but rather creates a new copy with the edits which that user could view.

                                      • 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!

                                        • Move Dashboards between tenants with Rest API

                                          Use API to copy over dashboards from workspaces by dataset.

                                          There is already a rest API to copy reports:
