  1. Segmentation of schedule update time

    The unit of update time using On-premises Data Gateway is [30 minutes], but please allow users to set the range of update time freely, such as 20 minutes.

    • 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…

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • 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

            • Microsoft Exchange connection for gateway

              Please add a gateway connection to be used with Microsoft Exchange. I have been wanting to connection to particular folders/files within my Office 365 Mail that can be brought in through Power BI Desktop, but then cannot be part of a published model using gateways due to the lack of this Microsoft Exchange Gateway

              • 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.

                  • View List of Reports Associated with a Gateway

                    In the Power BI Service, gear icon menu, under 'Manage Gateways', would you consider adding a 'View Associated Reports' option to the menu that's displayed when "..." is clicked by a data gateway's name?

                    Use Case:
                    When migrating from an old gateway to a new gateway, the web interface doesn't provide a way to see which reports are associated with the old gateway and so need to be updated to use the new gateway. In the self-service BI world, the IT administrator doing the migration may have no idea which gateway each report uses so may need to visit all…

                      • 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.

                          • Row level security

                            It would be great if we can have dynamic row level security without adding members each time. I use RLS on a dataset that has 8000 records, and typing each member to a group space is a tedious task!

                                  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

                                      Another way to handle error 1603 during installation is execute as administrator option on the right click menu.

                                      • Allow Automation for ON-premises installation

                                        Allow Automation for ON-premises Gateway installation.
                                        We have 20 Servers with Enterprise Gateways install on them.
                                        As new versions come out, we want to update the Gateway on all servers. However, we can not use a silent install since it is non-existing feature. We have to go server-by-server and install the gateway and then configure it. Please allow silent install just like SQL Server

                                        • 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
