  2. Have an ability to have a different display name for a report other than the original report name

    Reports when designed have a more technical and descriptive name but not necessarily the names are user friendly and short. It will be nice if Power BI report server has a feature that allows to have a different display name for a report in the folder that is visible on the Portal.

  3. Please put "Logout" button in Power BI Report Server

    There is no option for user to logout from Power BI Report Server. Currently, when user wants to logout, user will just have to close the browser/tab. It would be nice to have the logout button. Please add this for security purposes.

  4. datepicker

    The date picker for the SSRS/paginated reports needs to have more advanced options. Most modern date pickers allow you to navigate dates more quickly by clicking on the month and the calendar view will dynamically change. An example can be found here: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/datepicker/index . Please add a more advanced datepicker.

  5. Embed Power BI Report Server reports into extranet apps

    Allow Embedding of Power BI Report Server Reports for Extranet Apps. Because of our clients needs data cannot leave our servers and be put on the cloud. Our existing SSRS reports are displayed using a report viewer object, however this will not work for PBIX. We need to ability to embed PBIX and display it externally. Is this going to be possible with Power BI report Server?

    Wanted to post an update to one of the pieces called out for this item – In a future update for the product, we’re planning to do work to introduce support for ADFS/AAD in Power BI Report Server, and at the same time do work to enable your app to override user authentication in a secure way.

  6. Force Credentials Prompt from Power BI Report Server

    Power BI report server uses windows authentication with single sign-on. There are requirements from certain clients to enforce prompt of windows user name and password with Power BI Report Server. Once logged-in user should be able to log off after completion of his tasks. Also there should be a auto log off within a configurable session time-out window.

  8. More granular security PBI Report Server

    We need more granular security in PBI Report Server. Currently we can define a Publisher etc and someone who can (create, edit and delete) folders but we need to be able to only allow deleting of entire folders or items to very specific users. Theres no option to split these out as theyre grouped together.

    Also when the security is applied to a folder such as "Finance Reports\Custom Reports" for Publisher the security should only be applied to the CHILDREN of that folder, not the folder itself. The parent security should define what a user can do with that folder.…

  11. Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

    Power BI Report Server should have an option to open the report in Full Screen mode just as it has an option in Power BI Service . When we open reports in Power BI Report Server , we can view page in 3 options 1:) Fit to Width , 2:) Fit to Page and 3:) Actual size . Issue with these three mode is the page and header consumes a lot of space and we need to scroll to view to full report .

  13. Add PowerBI Project template to VisualStudio

    Similar to SSRS can we get PowerBI in VS for Report Server? Easy for managing all of the code in TFS and for deployments?

  17. Allow saving Excel directly to PBIRS like paginated reports

    Currently you can't save excel files directly to PBI Report Server. Similar to how you can save PBI or Paginated Reports.
    Many users have reports in Excel workbooks and need to be able to Open, Modify and save back.
    Currently the only way to do this is to download the file, store it locally, make modifications, save it locally, go into PBIRS and upload to a specific location via portal. You should just be able to save from within the Excel desktop client.

  18. Scheduled Refresh in Power BI Report Server

    Add more options for scheduled refresh e.g. every hour from 06:00 AM up to 08:00 PM This would eliminate unnecessary refreshment of the data over nigth.

    The created SQL-Job is capable of the adjusting this refreshment rate.So, it should be possible to offer it in the user interfaces

  20. Allow uploading of multiple .pbix files to folder at once

    Problem/Challenge: Very tedious to upload multiple files to the folder. Have to do it one by one. Depending of the files size can takes hours.

    Enhancement: Allow uploading of multiple .pbix files to folder at once by allowing user to select multiple files from the browse file selection window.
