  1. Need the ability for users to view the security applied to a folder/dashboard

    We have a requirement from our users to be able to view the security that has been applied to folders and/or dashboards. Unfortunately the Browser role that the users have does not include this functionality.

    We need the PBI Report Server Security Roles to have the task 'Set security for individual items' split out into View and Modify tasks for the Browser role.

  2. Power BI Report Server September 2019 ISSUE with new Filter Pane (new & existing reports)

    The recent September 2019 release of Power BI Report Server and Power BI Desktop for Report Server has a new "Filter Pane" and additional features which look great, however the new pane does not render correctly when an existing report is re-published or a NEW report is created.
    Instead of displaying the filters, this text is displayed for both new & updated reports:
    "Pane Header Pane Body Current Filters: Industry: Financial Account Size: SMB".
    The model (a LIVE connection to Analysis Services) does not contain "Industry" or "Account Size" attributes.
    In addition, turning OFF this new feature (via Options >…

  3. Full Screen Option in Power BI Report server

    It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

  4. Hiding a header or footer in PBI RS will hide the content but it will still take up whitespace, allow it to be consumed to save space

    When a report's header or footer visibility is suppressed on any given page, whitespace will stand in its space. Consume whitespace has no effect. This is a waste of space and can generate thousands of additional printed pages in large deployments.

    Save the trees, save bytes, and save money -- please let us utilize the freed up space of a hidden header/footer!

  9. Edit Reports in Power BI Report Server

    Are there any plans to allow the creation or editing of reports directly in the browser instead of using the desktop client? This would allow the use as a self-service tool.

  10. Reset to default should stop hiding filter pane

    Right now when I click the Reset to Default button on my published Power BI report, the button not only resets to my default state, but it also removes the filter pane, which I do not want it to do. The report was published with the filter panes showing so users could alter select filters. But the reset makes the pane disappear and this state is not part of my default settings when the report was published.

  11. Report Comment Notifications

    Please can dynamic notifications of any kind be implemented into PBI Report Server (particularly report comments)?


    • Push notifications hand-in-hand with the ability to @end user within report comments (this could be an email or a notification within the server).

    This would be a great feature and helpful to any organisation.

  12. Clearer licensing regarding SQL Server Enterprise Edition with Software Assurance.

    I have read quite a lot about licencing on Power BI but I am still not quite sure whether we can use the free version of Power BI Desktop with Report Server when it is licenced under the 'SQL Server Enterprise Edition with Software Assurance'. Can anyone confirm?

    What I want to do is create reports using Power BI Desktop, publish them to the Power BI Report server and have other people in my organisation view the data, without needing their own licence. Is that possible or do we have to buy licences for the viewers?

    Thanks

  14. Support for Azure SQL database or Managed instance

    It would be great if the catalog databases: ReportServer and ReportServerTempdb (not the SSRS service itself). could be deployed to either Azure SQL Managed Instance or SQL Database.

  15. Refresh rate option for each visual in Report Server

    Add refresh rate option for each visual using Ajax without refreshing the whole page. In direct data sources sometimes we need to show data updates every x number of minutes. Can we add it in Report server please?

  16. Power BI report refresh's status is not real-time, need to press F5 or Refresh History to see the current status.

    Hi,

    It has been there for some times where the refresh status won't be able to change even though the report refresh is completed.  
    

    We need to click on the Refresh History only able to see the current status.

    Please make some enhancement/update on this.

  19. Ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself

    My organization use (PBIRS) but it has huge data and it's the effect on our performance.

    It would be great; if you can add the ability to change the parameter values on the dashboard itself. In this mount, it's working only by change values from the toolbar edit parameter.

  20. Persistent Filters

    In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
    scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)
