  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!

  2. Embedding Q&A experience for multiple datasets

    Power BI Embedded service supports embedding Q&A for a single dataset in the Power BI workspace at a given point of time. However, it does not support embedding Q&A on multiple datasets simultaneously. Would be really helpful if this feature is enabled/developed.

  3. 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…

  4. Use REST API to export report to PowerPoint

    Hi,
    Now that PowerBI Team has made possible to export reports to PowerPoint (GREAT JOB!), it would be awesome to be able to call this function through REST API to an embedded frame. Thanks!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Hotjar API

    We use Hotjar surveys to measure our CES score on 'thankyou' pages. At the moment we have to refresh all the hotjar datadumps by hand to refresh data. Therefore it would be great to have a automated data import from Hotjar in Power BI, this would save a lot of time.

  9. Update parameter into .pbix file

    Update Parameter Function only effect on Cloud but does not actually change the value into the .pbix file.
    We need this function to directly modified the parameter inside .pbix file so that other editor could get updated parameter via download from Cloud.

  10. 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.

  13. Can't pass multiple values using RLS for direct query (IN Clause)

    Below is the scenario explained in our case,
    • We are using Direct Query method for our PBI report. It is a multi-tenant report.
    • This report is embedded in our application, where we have a drop-down to select organization.
    • So when user selects organization its ID is passed to PBI in form of RLS. Where in PBI report we have created a Role on table field as mentioned below,
    o [account-ID] = VALUE ( USERNAME () )
    o Which filters and show only data for that particular Organization.
    • Now we have a requirement, where we need to…

  15. Custom Python Library in Power BI

    It would be great to have the ability to use our own custom python library inside PowerBI web. This helps improve code readability and shorten script code console.

    At the moment we can install our own library and can display in Power BI Desktop, but published this visual will give an error.

    It's great to have the ability to install our library from git to PowerBi web.

  17. Use Beta or Sandbox area for Microsoft to publish updates

    We recently discovered a Microsoft bug in the embedding environment. After several (incredibly stressful) weeks, we're happy to say MS has scheduled to implement the fix later this month. The idea we propose is for MS to offer a Beta or Sandbox area where it could publish it's update and customers could point to that to try it out. Had this been in-place prior to the update which caused the bug, we could have found it and saved everyone a lot of time and sweat - not to mention preventing problems for our customers.

  18. Allow developers to add Client Logo and some disclaimer as part of header and footer while printing report

    This would be a great addon for Powerbi embedded where,the api allows the user to add header(Customer Logo or some text) then the report where width and height can be adjustable and at the bottom most part allow some footer content like disclaimer etc.

  19. Refresh failures and other events to webhook

    Our P1 scenario would be to have PowerBi send a notification to a predefined webhook when a refresh fails. This will allow us to process the failure and handle remediation and notification.

    However, other events would be useful to have sent to a webhook including dataset publishing, report changes, etc. Ideally, the model would be similar to the Azure DevOps Service hooks model.
