  1. make kerberos constrain delegation possible from onpremise report server to azure analysis services

    currently is does not seem to be possible to set up kerberos constraint delegation from an on premise pbi report server to azure analysis services. it is not possible to create SPN's on the azure analysis services because the service account is managed by MS.

    • All the features ( Usage Metrics, Version History, Shared Datasource, etc...) of Service should available to PBI report Server

      Most of the clients still using On-Premise instead of Power BI Service. If we get all the advanced features (Usage Metrics, Version History, Shared Data Source, etc..) available in Service to Report Server, It would be great to the clients who prefer On-Premise.

      • SSRS Style Parameters are vital for optimised Power BI Reports

        The way report parameters work in SSRS means we can have reports that load quickly and are optimised.

        Currently with Power BI we are presented with the solution to use slicers on the report, however that doesn't cut it when we have a lot of data in the back end it just isn't responsive and we have excruciating load times.

        Not having this feature is a deal breaker, and we cannot switch from SSRS to Power BI because of it.

          • Add filter preview and customizing filter pane (just like in Jan 2019 Power BI Services) to Desktop RS and Server versions

            1. Hide Filter pane from report published to Power BI Report server.
            2. Create or cutomize filter pane for Report Server (as of Jan 2019 this is only available in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service Jan 2019 versions).
            3. Make Visuals filter selection propagate to other pages/tabs in the Dashboard (E.g. I click one value in a table or a bar in a chart and all corresponding data in any other page/tab filters accordingly. As of Jan 2019 RS and RS Desktop version this is not possible. This would be similar to how syncing slicers controls now work.

            • Schedule Multiple sources at multiple scheudles in one single pbix report

              Hi, right now we are not able to create different schedule refreshes for same report.

              Example our report has two sources (from two servers SQL and Teradata). Teradata Source refresh should be daily and SQL source refresh should be hourly. Both these are for same pbix file. Can we have this important feature as this will help to schedule different sources differently.

              • Visual Studio SSDT style report deployment of Power BI files to Power BI Report Server

                Many of us using Power BI Report Server are doing so because the Power BI Service is not an option, and the typical BI development process requires the use of TFS or some other source control tool to manage our environments. Those who create RDL-based/paginated reports are very comfortable with the Visual Studio, SSDT deployment process. Power BI Report Server is out of sync with that process, as there is currently no way to trigger a new Power BI report creation from within Visual Studio, and no integrated method of deploying Power BI reports or PBI Template to PBI Report…

                • Add "Underlying data" option to Export data capability in PBI Report Server product

                  This capability is enabled in the Power BI Service (cloud) product, but not in Power BI Report Server (on-premises) product. This is a problem for our users since we migrated to the Report Server product.

                  It was very efficient for our users when we used Power BI Service to slice the reports and then select Export data and then have the option of selecting either "Underlying data" or "Summarized data". Now, in Report Server, this option is missing and the only data that can be exported from a report is exactly what is presented in the report visualization (i.e. summarized…

                  • Analyze in Excel from Power BI Report Server

                    This feature would be great. Many of our users are in Mac OS, which means they can't explore the data beyond the charts setup by the BI team, because PowerBI Desktop is not currently supported in Mac OS.

                    • Provide option to 'Publish to Report Server' instead of 'Save As' on Power BI Desktop for Report Server

                      While using PBI Desktop for PBIRS would be a lot better to have an option under the menu Publish rather on Save As in order to save a report to the Power BI Report Server.

                          • Change user language setting in the report server

                            I want to force to model to use English language for large values that represent in the model with shortcuts "M" and "K" (Millions,Thousands), but instead in some computers the browser display I get is in English and other in our local language.
                            It would be very helpful if we can change the language setting for each user in the report server ,just like we do in the Power BI service.

                            • Power BI Report Server: Passing forms user name to customdata when using Forms Authentication

                              We use Custom (Forms) Authentication for Power BI Report Server, however both UserPrincipalName and UserName functions always return the service account running the Report Server, hence row-level-security does not work on Power BI reports published to the server.
                              Passing forms user name to customdata would allow RLS to work on publsihed Power BI reports.

                                The current filters pane on the right hand side of the Power BI UI automatically sorts the filters in alphabetical order.

                                We need to be able to customize the order the fields appear in these filter panes.

                                    Reports run locally support parameter changes in Power BI Desktop.

                                    This should also be allowed in the version uploaded to Power BI Report Server.

                                    The purpose is to change Parameters used in Variables in the Queries.

                                    • Allow users to save multiple filter presets on the Power BI Service

                                      Persistent filters was a great step forward, but it would be even better if users on the Power BI service could preserve multiple "presets." In other words, they could save their current filter settings as a type of bookmark just for them, and then they could retrieve previously used filter settings. This would be really helpful for users who may have a couple of different ways they like to look at things.
