  1. Enterprise Gateway Refresh and Direct Query of Active Directory

    While the personal gateway is able to pull on Premise Active Directory, the Enterprise Gateway cannot. We cannot rely on an end user to keep their workstations on to report AD information.

  3. More obvious button to Add Data Source to Gateway

    The option to add a data source to a gateway is not obvious, especially for first time users. One has to click on the ellipsis beside the name of the gateway and then choose Add Data Source. There should be a button that says "Add Data Source", or something likewise obvious beside the name of the Gateway.

  4. View Username Of A Gateway In Data Source Settings

    The username used for the enterprise gateways on the Data Source Settings page of the Gateways management page of the online Power BI management page shows only dots and masks username.

    This requires referencing the username used in the credentials in the title of the gateway name to ensure everybody knows which account is being used for that connection. Having the username actually shown in this page would greatly simplify the gateway management process.

  5. Support for multiple instances of the On-premise data gateway on one server

    We host data and tabular models for multiple customers on one server. Each need their own tenant with different domains. This in turn requires us to have multiple servers just to host the on-premise data gateway.

    Would be great to be able to have multiple instances of the on-premise data gateway running on one server.

    This I imagine would also be useful for testing/preprod deployments in smaller setups where a dedicated server just for the gateway is overkill.

  7. Add Translations support to Gateway

    The translations of multidimensionnal cubes seems not supported by any gateway. Could you please provide this kind of functionality ?

  8. database as optional in gateway

    In Power BI service, in data gateway i want to add a new data source, so i choose "sql server" and because there are many databases i dont want to choose only one database. Why this field is not optional?

  9. Allow recipients to share your dashboard

    When a user click on share dashboard, default check box of "Allow recipients to share your dashboard" is available.

    I like to see if this can be handled as on Tenant Setting, Power BI Service Administrator to disable for entire organization and allow only to specific groups like we have option for "Share content with external users" to enable/disable specific groups.

    This option in the Tenant Settings will allow admin to decide which groups / users can share the dashboard if there's no RLS implemented.

  10. Separating the roles of Power BI/Data Gateway administrator from the custodian of data connection

    Currently, the person who can setup a data connection – entering “hard-coded” credentials – on a Data Gateway has to be also an administrator on the Gateway.

    It means that either a Power BI admin has to have access to Data Connections (including sensitive data), or a Data Custodian has to become an admin on the Gateway (and be able to affect other “tenants”/data connections deployed on the same Gateway). Running a separate Gateway per each data connection is not economically feasible.

    POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Change the Data Connection object so that connection credentials can be stored outside of the Data…

  13. Refresh Power BI Dashboard that contain R scripts via Enterprise Gateway

    It would be great if Power Bi reports and dashboards that contain R visuals and R scripts could be refreshed through the Enterprise Gateway.

  15. Allow Free Users to see Reports that have Row Level Security Roles (made by a PRO)

    It should be urgent to allow Free Users to see Reports that have Row Level Security Roles.
    I got the PRO Trial for my work account and created a Report intended to be shared with different groups of (Free) users, each group with an specific Role.
    It turns out they cannot look into the Report now since PRO License it's required.
    Does this means I need to create a single different Report with a different filter each? This seriously diminishes the usefulness of the tool. What's the point of the PRO license if anything the PRO does cannot be shared…

  16. Gateway Update Notification and Auto update for Enterprise Gateway

    We should be notified when there is a new version of both gateways. In addition, the Enterprise gateway should be updated automatically (admins should be able to turn this on/off).

  17. When Refresh is disabled, send an explicit email

    Currently, when a dataset refresh is disabled because of too many failed refreshes, it is just a note in the refresh failed email.

    The subject doesn't say anything about the schedule being disabled - this should be a lot more obvious!

  19. scheduled refresh Event Based

    There needs to be a way to do event based scheduling instead of just specific time. For example, after a data warehouse has been updated. One way to implement this is to ability to trigger a refresh via an Web Service API call. This way companies can trigger the refresh via PowerShell or SSIS after the data warehouse has been loaded.

  20. Ability to view and control who can create On-Premises Gateway

    IT needs to be able to control which individual, or group of, can install the On-Premises Gateway. Currently, if one user has privileged access to a data source, that user can share information through reports with other users that do not have the same level of access.

    The above can take place and go undetected, because the recently implemented audit feature of Power BI does not log On-Premises Gateways actions.

    This in SAP HANA shops is a big deal, as a number of users do have access to the data, as access controls (IAM) on the SAP HANA side controls…
