  1. 请考虑将Power BI Report Server部署的本地报表增加一个全屏按钮

    请考虑将ReportServer部署的本地报表增加一个全屏按钮,可以让报表或者仪表盘的展示可以实现全屏效果,并在全屏界面下增加一个浮动的按钮,可以取消全屏,切换展示的页面;具体功能希望能够和Power bi Server版本上展示全屏和取消全屏的效果一样;

        • Allow URL redirect after session inactivity timeout

          Current PBI Report Server does not enforce a period of session inactivity. In the event a user leaves their machine unattended, it could allow for an attacker to access the website using another user’s credentials. The lack of this ability increases system exposure to data breech. PBI Report Server should provide the ability to terminate browser session and redirect to a logout URL. This feature is key for Enterprise solutions to meet the security requirements.

          • Align PBI Desktop and PBI Services

            For me is very frustrating the fact that I have a lot of reports using PBI Desktop and as soon I want to publish it on PBI Service, half of the features won't work, like:
            Combine datasource, have function with datasoure with parameters, datasources with annonymous authentication...

            Can both be aligned? either add the same functionalities on PBI Services or remove them from PBI Desktop?

            • 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 support for IBM Netezza DirectQuery in Power BI Report Server

                As indicated in, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/data-sources, Power BI Report Server currently only supports a IBM Netezza data sources with cached data. As this is not really useful, it would be ideal to add support for Power BI Reports that use a DirectQuery connection to IBM Netezza.

                  • In the report subscription on PowerBI report server output folder on powerbi report server itself must be configurable to set as destiation

                    While setting up report subscription on powerBI server, we should be able to set sharepoint library or powerBI report server folder as a destination to store report subscription output file.

                          • Give Power BI desktop for Report Server also the Preview options

                            Hi,

                            At the moment there is a difference between PowerBI Desktop for Report Server and the "normal" PowerBI Desktop. I want to use the ShapeMaps, Visio Visual also. But this is not possible yet.

                            • Multiple ssas models connected to one dashboard

                              I want to make a dashboard based on production, HR data and financial data. I can make one model for this, But sometimes it is better to make 3 separate models for this. But I want only 1 dashboard based on these 3 models. Please add the possibility to connect to multiple ssas datasource with a live connection.

                                • Ajustar el tamaño de las columnas de una tabla en conjunto

                                  Sería muy útil poder organizar el tamaño de las columnas de la tabla de forma simetría, no una por una. La idea es tener la opción de ajustar el ancho de las columnas de una tabla y que automáticamente todas las columnas tengan el mismo ancho.

                                    Mobile Reports have a sample preview of what the underlying report looks like. Users find this useful when looking for the report they need. Can this be done for the Power BI tiles?

                                    • Add Box Plots to Power BI Report Server

                                      Box Plots are commonly used in data visualization. Power BI Report server should include box plots. I understand there is a custom component for Power BI Cloud, but it would be great to have this included in Power BI Report Server as well.

                                        Automatic slide show in full-screen for Power BI Report Server: it should be possible to set up an automatic slide show between the different tabs within a report in full screen mode.

                                          Would be great if you can provide functionality to create linked PowerBI reports. Same as with regular paginated reports. Provides better security management and flexibility.
