  1. Lost credentials

    I've been using the personal gateway for over two years and just started getting refresh errors on most of my dashboards daily. All of my data sources are on prem csvs, and show credential errors where they are are 'invalid' or 'missing' credentials. In many cases this disables my refresh schedule going forward. Any thoughts on how to resolve this would be appreciated.

  2. Power BI Gateway and Power BI Service support for "SQL Server Failover support"

    Power BI Desktop has since January had support for "SQL Server Failover support" (robably Always On). But this is not supported from Power BI Service using a Power BI Gateway.

    I don't know if there's a change needed in both the Service and the Gateway, but that's for Microsoft to sort out

    Adding this would rapidly decrease the data needed to be upload to the Power BI Service via the Power BI Gateway. It would also provide near RT access to data

  3. Quickly add feature that allows multiple user logins to same database

    Currently, you can create a connection to an oracle database that has multiple schemas or logins with PBI desktop. You need a separate PBIX file for each, but you can do it and you can publish data after refreshing in the desktop.

    The issue is that the OPDG will recognize the "one" database as a duplicate and not allow multiple logins that would otherwise serve as security for different sets of data.

    Can you quickly add a feature that will allow multiple user logins to the same database?

    In justifying the cost/benefit, consider what it means to Oracle shops that…

  4. Disaster Recovery Plan

    I do not feel comfortable with relying on a Key to be able to perform the restoration in case of failure. It would be more reliable to provide a second backup option to be able to restore in case a real disaster would happens. We have to maintain a separated database to save records of each data source setting. And for a big company this is something to think of..

  5. parametrized table

    Parametrized Table valued functions in Direct Query.

    Datasource can be table valued function, but now it accepts only constant, not DAX expressions.
    Can table valued function accepts parameters such as USERPRINCIPALNAME() or similar, which is info about Power BI user (it is not changeable inside session).
    Because in many cases, it is much easier than RLS inside Power BI.

  6. Enterprise Gateway Fix Needed

    When a scheduled refresh fails in the Gateway, Power BI turns off the automatic refresh. The gateway needs to add a configurable re-try function before turning off the auto-refresh.

  10. PowerBI On Premise Gateway searching multiple domains

    PowerBI On Premise Gateway allows searching single On Premise domains to match Azure UPN to a property in On Premise domain such as 'mail'

    Would be great if this could be enhanced to search multiple domains, forests.

    We have users with single Azure login but multiple on premise domain accounts and the on premise accounts are used for SSAS Tabular access.

  12. PowerBI On Premise Gateway configurable filters for domain search

    PowerBI On Premise Gateway allows us to search on premise domain using looking of Azure UPN to On Premise domain property.

    would be great to have a configuration option to filter/exclude domains or accounts in the search.

    This is in conjunction with this request https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/18757633-powerbi-on-premise-gateway-searching-multiple-doma

    As we have users with accounts in multiple on premise domains so if we can search multiple domains/forests we need to exclude accounts to ensure the correct match. I.e. exclude disabled accounts and domains that aren't searchable that might be in the same forest.

  13. Power Bi Gateway needs to allow for URL parts and HTTP Headers. This is the age of cloud ecospheres, but without it, PowerBi integrates nil.

    Power Bi needs to allow for URL parts and HTTP Headers for Web Service calls in their Gateways.
    Currently, no URL parts or HTTP Headers can be configured. Given that Power Bi only allows for Basic and Windows Authentication, this kills pretty much any Web Service integration outside of Power Bi.

    Arguably, it's ridiculous to ask for such a thing because in the age of cloud ecospheres, a BI solution and especially in Microsoft's Cloud First philosophy, I wouldn't need to ask for Headers to circumvent missing Authentication Methods such as OAuth, Digest, or Hawk, lest asking for a properly…

  14. Choice of data center to publish data

    It would be good to have choice of data center to publish reports and other dashboard data to. For certain business customers there are information governance restrictions on where all data should be stored. So flexibility in this area would be great.

  15. Allow bulk insert(Upload) for a user UPN mapping

    It would be great to have a mechanism of uploading/inserting multiple UPN mapping data at a time. This will save a lot of time when someone has to populate so many UPN mapping for different data source, and it will minimize the the chance of making any error.

    We have been reviewing the Gateway subject with architecture and we have two questions that we need to make sure are clear so we can understand the complete concept and be able to proceed: 
    1. How does Power BI establish a secure connection with an intranet? 
    2. Is Gateway independently installed in a server inside the DMZ so that it can serve as a bridge between Power BI and BW?

    Thanks a Lot!

  20. Combine enterprise gateway and online data sources

    I have a CRM online database and many othes sources of SQL databases that I need to combine. In this moment the option is to use the Personal Gateway but The Personal Gatweway is very limited. When you plan to include this feature?
