  1. gateway log on

    It should be possible to select the service account prior to installation. The installation fails due to the fact that the NT SERVCE PBIEgwService does not have log in as service privileges, because only Network Service has.

    Since the installation fails, without creating the service or the installation folder, I have no way to change the service user. (Or install the gateway, without going through external vendors to set local group policy).

  2. Please allow for for My SQL connections in the gateway to work without a password to the My SQL database.

    Please allow for My SQL connections in the gateway to work without a password to the My SQL database. I am working with a dental application and the default is for no password to MySQL. There are user level passwords however. thanks

  3. Use correct column names when viewing a Power BI report on a phone

    Renamed column names are not shown when viewing a "Phone View" on a mobile device. The original column names are shown. The preview on the desktop shows the renamed columns but when viewing them on an actual phones the original column names are shown.

  7. On Premise Gateway Connection Issue Flag

    Each time we publish a PBI report and try and schedule the refreshes, we need to connect to the on premise gateway. For larger reports with multiple tables and sources it can be very time consuming identifying the source of what is stopping the gateway going live for that dataset.

    Could a change be made where PBI tells us what connections it isn't recognizing when trying to set up refresh times?

  10. Gateway requests targeting SSAS should include a source property for cache refreshes

    We have reports that are consuming data from tabular models on on-premises Analysis Services. And we're using Power BI Embedded, and we're specifying the EffectiveUserName property when obtaining the embed token.

    In conjunction with this, we're required to log users who are accessing the on-premises servers and tabular models. And extended events provide most of the necessary data we need to measure. We're continually loading this data to a database and analyzing it.

    The problem is that the data include requests/queries that are being executed by the Power BI service from dataset and report cache refreshes. According to Josh Caplan…

  11. PowerbI desktop gateway support

    PowerBI should be able to use the data sources setup under the Gateway instead of local.

    This will allow us to prevent direct access from end user workstation to the DB server over custom ports.

  12. Gateway at SQL Server Level

    We should not have to setup a Gateway under a cluster for each database connected in the PBIX file. One for each SQL server should suffice. This is way too taxing on admin resources.

  13. Add Data Source (TABLE LEVEL) in Enterprise Gateway

    As of now you cannot add a data source at the Table level. You can only add a data source at the database level and that can be added only once on a gateway.

  14. personal gateway run as a service

    We desperately need personal GTW to run as a service
    Because of a security rule that disconnects connections automatically after few hours, I find myself getting into the server again and again, logging into the personal gtw, and only then able to refresh my data set.

  15. Gateway Window to run on the background

    This is something I discussed with Mike shelton, currently the gateway window is always on the desktop for the gateway to be online. It would be nice to have this window run on the background instead of on screen. It takes up the real estate of the desktop.

  17. Updating data source/dashboard/report

    It is very problematic when you create a report/dashboard in Power BI Desktop then publish it to your workspace, then you have to make an update in Desktop, publish again then try to refresh in your workspace but actually you have to go to a 3rd place (gateway) to update the data source. Now we're doing too much.

  18. Regarding the enforced setting of HTTPS communication of On-premise Data Gateway

    Although I am aware that the enforced setting of HTTPS communication is to be performed after installing On-premise Data Gateway, I hope its Installer to be improved so as to execute its setting during installing
    in order to give higher priority to the enforced HTTPS communication resulted from the security improvement along with the end of support for TLS1.0 having begun since Nov 2017.

  19. Enterprise Gateway Limitations

    Enterprise/Personal Gateways Schedule Refresh

    I would like to schedule auto refreshes for import connections via an enterprise gateway to SQL Server Analysis Services.

    In my pbix file, I am connected to a SQL Server Analysis Service (import mode) via an enterprise gateway and an Azure SQL databases via a personal gateway. I would like to schedule auto refreshes for all data source within PowerBI Service. I cannot schedule auto refreshes due to PowerBI limitations. If i create a live connection to the SQL Server Analysis Services, I can schedule auto refreshes, but cannot overlay data from the Azure SQL Database.

    And choose will user logon each time when start PBI session, or once for each user (with possibility to reopen logon screen if connection/logon is failed).
