  1. Allow Manual Selection of Gateway for Data Source Refresh

    When a user tries to schedule a data set for Excel refresh, the power bi website looks for the gateways set up with the data sources having same Excel paths. Even though it might sound convenient for the users, it creates lots of headache for administration. For example, I had machine crashed and rebuilt and the original gateway lost, or multiple gateways shows the same path in my attempt to recover.

    How about we allow the user to specify one gateway specifically and do not match the gateway behind the scene to decide what gateway to show and what not…

  3. Gateway Connections Error Report

    Sometimes the enterprise gateway isn't an available option in the datasets settings menu eventhough all the datasources have been added. There should be an error or status box indicating what specifically is causing the Ent. Gateway from not being an option.

  4. No notification mechanism in cloud if gateway goes offline

    We have to keep on monitoring at regular intervals which is difficult. It would be good if we get notification from cloud if gateway goes offline.

  7. Better gateway / connectivity messages

    When using the enterprise gateway, I was getting a message "the gateway server may be unavailable..." which was completely not the case. The issue turned out to be that a connection setting was missing.

    In general, the gateway interface in the service needs much better messaging. It would be really excellent if I could go in to a given dataset, open up the scheduling options, and see each of the connections listed in the dataset - along with whether it matched up to an existing gateway connection, and if it was successful.

    I would also like to be able to…

  8. Add Exasol to Gateway Data sources for Live/DirectQuery

    Given that Exasol now has a certified connector to Power BI, please add Exasol to the list of data sources that support Live/DirectQuery in Gateway, in order to give maximum performance for this in-memory DB and so benefit Power BI users for Enterprise ready solutions.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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
