  1. Enterprise Gateway - Active Directory Security Groups as Users

    In the gateway data source I am forced to add each user individually to allow them to create a report off that data source.
    Alternately I can create custom groups in o365.
    We have already established security groups on our system would it be possible for these groups to be used?
    This is an extra layer of security for hundreds of users that has already been solved through active directory synchronization with office 365.

    The use case is to add a security group or multiple group to be authorized to create reports off the data source. When we add or…

  3. Can't delete Gateway Cluster after deleting all the instances

    Something went wrong
    We could not remove this gateway because it is the primary gateway within a cluster that has other gateway instances. Please remove other gateway instances from this cluster before removing the primary gateway.
    Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

  4. Manage an On-premises Data Gateway Cluster through REST API

    Using an Azure Logic App we currently verify data gateway availability before processing Analysis Services models. After moving to a high-availability gateway cluster, we want to check the availability of the cluster, not only the primary node. A REST API to manage the cluster would be very helpful.

  5. Service principal with Power BI and Data Gateway

    Currently the Service principal account cannot leverage the On-Premises Data Gateway since it is not a mail-enabled account. This prevents a Power BI Embedded solution to leverage an on-premises SSAS tabular model leveraging the service principal. Instead we need a full-blown power BI pro license for a service account. I would like the capability to leverage the data gateway added to the service principal Power BI authentication.

  7. Make it so you do not have to take over a dataset refresh.

    When configuring a refresh of a dataset, only the person who originally configured the refresh can see the settings. For someone else to take it over, you need to then enter all of the connection information in again. It would be nice to be able to see and modify this information without having to set it all up again.

  8. .xlsb Excel file data refresh support

    .xlsb Excel files can be loaded in Power Bi Desktop. Unfortunately the data refresh via a gateway is not possible and fails.

  9. more specific info about why scheduled refresh failed

    Hi, I really appreciate the email that is generated when the scheduled refresh failed. Would it be possible to add there:
    - name or ID of workspace failed report is in?
    - information why it failed (eg. "Could not resolve QueryDefinition due to invalid SourceEntity reference '<pi>_MyMeasures</pi>'. This error often happens after the Entity was renamed or deleted. Please update the query/visual to use the new name or undo the name change. - Source: 'User' "

    It would be very helpful for us, who have many workspaces and need to know what is wrong.

    Thank you,
    Zuzana

  10. Add Relative Time filtering to the Visual Level filter line chart

    Since now PowerBI has real time data there is no way to filter a line chart based on the last "x" minutes. In the relative date filtering it is handy to have to choose minutes.

  11. Feature to disable connection in Power BI Gateway

    In Power BI gateway we have available features to add and remove connection; but we do not have anything like enable/disable. However a feature to be able to disable connection will be helpful when resetting/changing password in a connection. Or sometime we want to hold a particular database to be accessed from Power BI when some maintenance activity is in progress in that database. So it would be helpful if we can control the connectivity to different sources in the gateway using disable/enable.

  12. Make Azure VM scaleset image available for powerBI gateway

    Our entire organization reports depend on single enterprise gateway and at time the load increases to maximum, triggering us to add a new node manually.

    this manual node is waste of time to monitor manually and take down to reduce costs, when not in use.

    if you start supporting azure vm scalesets, this would provide following benefits
    -> auto scale on load
    -> reduce costs with scale down options

  15. Enterprise Gateway - schedual refresh on an interval for SQL

    Instead of selecting specific time slot for when to update, it would be faster to just select refresh every x hour.
    Also In the setup there is right now I have a gateway that starts to update a lot of datasets the the same time stamp. Could be an idea also to select an option to refresh when the gateways is not occupied by other refresh tasks, to even out the load

  16. Bug refreshing R stats source

    After publishing a PBIX with an R script as a data source the refresh fails in the service with exception below after entering credentials : RException.....NotValidRException

    This using R-3.6.0 64bit in Windows 10 with the PersonalGateway 3000.6.202. Note, R script runs fine in the PBIX file as well as R Studio.

  17. Send Refresh Failure Notifications to Distribution List

    It would be helpful to be able to set up a distribution list of those to send refresh failure notifications to. Currently, only the owner receives an email, but we have several administrators that require notification when certain reports fail.

  18. gateway usage

    Usage Report for Enterprise Gateway - The log data should be available so that we can create dashboards based on Gateway Usage data.
    Metrics like the datasets name using Gateway, workspace name, owner, scheduled refresh frequency, adhoc refresh, run duration and other parameters for all dependent reports should be available. This will help in scaling the Enterprise Gateway correctly and avoid bottlenecks. Currently there is no visibility to the work spaces for which we don't have access however responsible for maintaining gateway.

  19. Force dataset takeover to new after manipulation of dataset

    Whenever a user overwrites a dataset in the Power BI Service he should be forced to takeover the dataset, to make sure this user is authorized for the connected data sources.

    Gateway datasource are authorized to certain users only. According to the documentation only these users should be able to publish reports that use the data source and therefore to decide what information is made available to the consumers of the report.
    By downloading the PBIX file, changing and republishing the dataset any edit user of the workspace can extract any data they want from the data source even though…

  20. Limit the number of connections to an Oracle database to prevent using up all available licenses in Oracle.

    Limit the number of connections to an Oracle database to prevent using up all of the Oracle licenses and locking users out.
