  2. Enable OAuth for custom connectors published on enterprise gateway.

    It is currently put there as a bullet on limitations list. Why? Can anyone at least explain why OAuth is available on personal GW but not enterprise?

  3. Gateway deletion

    Considering that a Gateway is very easy to be removed by human error, Will be considered in the next Gateway releases implement some deletion method (similar to the one used in Azure Portal for resources where you need to type the name of the resource as a security measure)? What happens if a gateway is deleted from the Power BI service? I'll not be able to recovery anymore right?
    At least consider in having the two functionalities ( Add Data Source / Remove) separated from the gateway “right click” options.

  4. Map User Name on Gateway for SAAS in Workgroup Server

    We can typically connect via the Gateway to Analysis Services installed on a server outside a domain. But I can not create a dataset. It would be great to be able to map the user to a user in the SERVER\user format. I do not understand why I can not use the gateway if Microsoft allows me to install SQL into Workgroup. This does not make sense because I can install SQL into Workgroup and normally access using other clients. We have hundreds of potential customers today to use a solution built with PowerBI but we will not be able…

  5. Cancellation of updates in progress via Gateways

    Portuguese

    Seria interessante nas atualizações agendadas e manuais via Gateways uma maneira de parar a atualização, temos várias situações que o carregamento fica lento ou instabilidade do nosso banco de dados e é necessário aguardar o tempo de time-out que no Premium é de 5 horas.
    Sugestão poderia ter um botão dentro do histórico de atualizações para cancelar a atualização que está em andamento.

    English

    It would be interesting in the scheduled updates and manuals via Gateways a way to stop the update, we have several situations that the loading is slow or instability of our database and it is…

  6. Incremental update working with paramaterized database names

    I need to change the database in the Power Bi Server using a parameter (Impala database). Incremental update fails hard. Cannot even set it up.

  7. enter credentials once or at least attempt to apply them to all "invalid" sources

    When I setup a gateway for a data set - I am asked to validate credentials to the n datasources it connects to - in this set I have about 15 separate files and folders - and I need to refresh each one. in my case, all my files are in sharepoint, so it would be fantastic if I could have the option to tell it to apply credentials to all outstanding items

  8. Set SAP BW language code

    Can you please add the possibility to set the language code of the SAP BW connection (as you can in desktop) when scheduling through a personal gateway. I have to set the regional settings of my computer to English (United states) for my gateway to send the correct language. If I use my preferred settings I get an error.

  11. Enabled Kerberos Constrained Delegation between domains and forests

    Currently, a limitation of Kerberos Constrained Delegation is that the service account the PowerBI Gateway is running with has to be in the same domain as the user account that KCD is performed for.
    Since we have separate resource (where PBIGW is in) and user domains, it is currently not possible to perform KCD for us.
    Please support cross domain KCD for PBIGW and preferrably also cross forest to be able to login with account on a PBIGW in another forest with which our forest has a trust.

  14. Provide Multi-Subnet Support for Power BI on Microsoft Data Gateway

    we have a Microsoft SQL Always On setup that span across 2 DC that is on diff subnet. Since this is a standard Microsoft solution, I am abit surprise there is no support for SQL Always On with Multisubnet configuration

  17. In Oracle Data Source doc, specify that PBIEgwService MUST be restarted before it will work.

    In this doc:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-onprem-manage-oracle

    Please add a notice that "After the Oracle ODAC is installed, the PBIEgwService Windows Service MUST be restarted, either from the On Premises Gateway app or from from Powershell : Stop-service PBIEgwService
    Start-service PBIEgwService

    --

    Thanks!

  18. Gateway node timeout causes cluster failure

    When a gateway node in a cluster is locked up on the host PC, the Power BI service reports a timeout error. The problem is the service just gives up at that point instead of going to another node. The node isn't dead/offline, but it just isn't responding properly (which is another issue to be sure), but if that happens, instead of the report failing and timing out, it should look for another node.

    You can see some raw details in this thread. http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Integrations-with-Files-and/Gateway-node-timed-out-service-didn-t-use-other-nodes-in-cluster/m-p/458153/highlight/true#M18239

  19. Fix fast combine documentation

    The documentation at
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-personal-mode
    includes instructions on re-enabling 'fast combine' for the gateway in personal mode, but the code excerpt includes apostrophes at the end of line , and this causes an error;

    <setting name="EnableFastCombine" serializeAs="String">```
    <value>true</value>
    </setting>

    The correct excerpt does not include the three apostrophes.

  20. Minimum requirements for On-premises Data Gateway

    The minimum requirements of On-premises Data Gateway can not be clearly judged with the following URL contents.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-onprem#requirements
    -----
    # Is it necessary for installation?
    # When using DirectQuery?
    # Were they "Data import"?
    # Estimated number of connected people, etc.
    -----
    I would like to clearly present to users.
