  1. Dremio/Power BI Service Support SSO through DirectQuery

    Dremio serves as our corporate data as a service platform, Power BI Desktop with Dremio works fine but in order for our users to use PowerBI Service we need Power BI to support SSO connections for Dremio. We are looking for SSO (Pass through) connectivity from PowerBI Service to Dremio. Use of an on-premise Gateway would require a single service account and will not work due to limiting security access controls to our data. Please consider adding this support for Dremio.

    Dremio should be included with these SSO DirectQuery sources(bottom of page).

  2. Denodo Direct Query in Power BI Report Server

    Denodo Direct Query has been available in Power BI Server but not Power BI Report Server yet. Can we make this feature also available in PBI RS?

  3. Allow SSO from Power BI Service to Denodo

    Currently a fix credential is used to configure connectivity from Denodo connector in Data Gateway to Denodo Server. It is not able to capture login user in Power BI service and allow pass through down to Denodo Server so that only authorized rows/dataset is return. Please work on this ASAP as we want to leverage the row level data access control built in Denodo centrally rather than recreating at Power BI level.

  4. Quicken (.QIF) Import Data Connectivity Support

    It would be great if you could support Quicken (.QIF) as a data type and add a connector so that Quicken data updates power BI automatically. Currently I have to download my quicken transactions to an excel file, manipulate the file, and then load to power BI. It's extremely inefficient.

  5. DirectQuery web service connector

    Provide a DirectQuery connector to query a Web Service API. To feed the connector, the web service would need to implement methods for querying (obviously) with filtering, grouping and sorting the resultset. Additional methods would be exposing the data model for discovery.

    Such a web service would open the door to many scenarios that are not based directly on an underlying data store: on-the-fly data feeds, custom rule-based data protection, backend application logic and transformations, DB-less systems etc.

  9. Connector to access custom list and custom user field

    Without the proprietary solution Service, only the default Project Site lists and default columns (i.e. Risks, Issues, Deliverables) are accessible by Power BI using OData connector.
    Customers of Microsoft PPM solution will create custom list for Assumptions, dependencies, Change Request, Benefits register etc and will create custom user fields.
    To access these custom fields and custom lists, customers either have to buy 3rd part proprietary solution or using XML connector / REST API - this requires making changes (finding ID of the custom fields, then using this etc) - Power BI needs to have a custom connector so the custom…

  11. Synchronize row selection with filters (from slicers and from filter pane).

    When you select a row, we wish that the filters displays show only the value from this row.

  16. Update for Power BI Publisher - Excel

    Power BI Publisher add-in last update was during November 2017. Due to no further updates, using this add-in we cannot connect to the new workspaces.

    Only the classic workspaces can be accessed through this add-in. As shown in the screenshot below – Only classic workspaces are visible.

    An update for this such that the new workspaces can be accessed through Power BI publisher would be great.

    P.S - Though there is an option of Analyse in Excel. I think it would be better to have this option as well.

  17. Power BI leveraging Entity Store in D365 for Finance and Operations

    A lot of pre-built Power BI content is embedded within Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. These data sources can be made available to Power BI Desktop - unless the D365 instance is a managed instance, in which case this is not allowed. Having access to these pre-built solutions would be be very helpful in speeding along development efforts.

  18. Raise Awareness to end users

    Create a template of a General Dashboard containing all Active Dashboards so the end-user can navigate and see if any of them are important/ relevant for them.

    This needs to contain a general description of each Dashboard and to mention the Business Owner so, if the access request is required it can be reached.

  19. TEAMS CONNECTOR

    We need to connect Power BI to several Teams in order to create a single report. That report will get the data from several Excel workbooks, each workbook is on a different Teams. And the workbooks have many sheets.
    This will be a great and critical improvement to establish an automation and have the dashboard report always updated and available to Board needs.
    P.S. Already had a meeting (Teams call) with your support/ troubleshooting level and right now it is not possible to establish that connection.
