  1. Make accesible the raw data from Power BI premium capacity metrics

    We would need to extend the Capacity Metrics dataset to generate custom reports with additional information, and applying RLS to share the info to the business users which own each workspace. As for now, the dataset can't be modified.

    • Power BI premium capacity metrics - extend it to beyond 7 days.

      I would like to see capacity usage metrics beyond 7 days. Is this going to be a part of any future releases? I should be able to keep an find of the usage metrics for the duration I wish for say few weeks to few months. Specific month, specific week etc. Please add a feature for this.

        • Premium cost is very high

          Premium cost is very high and it not bear medium scale company. Please look for law cost product with premium features and law capacity.

          • Assign Premium Capacity Admin Permissions to an AD Security Group rather than individual Users

            Under the Premium Capacity Settings, I can only assign the Capacity Admin to individual users. It does not allow me to assign this to an Active Directory Mail Enabled Security Group. For efficient security administration at an enterprise scale it would be preferable if Capacity Admin permissions could be managed through Active Directory Security Groups.

            Security Groups can be used to grant users assignment permissions, so why not for Capacity Admin - or is there a special reason for this?

            • Add support for Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics in a government domain

              The Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics do not work in a Government powerbi domain. This is unacceptable as having paid for premium capacity, we are not getting the same level of service that others get when paying for this product. Please resolve.

              • Power Premium Capacity Metrics - Resource Consumption by workspaces\report

                I'd like to be able to filter resource consumption (CPU, Memory Consumtion) by workspace \ report. Now at Dataset tab we can filter refreshes by workspace\report but memory consumption show total for Capacity

                • Max size limit on total memory consumption for workspaces on premium capacity.

                  Proposed Idea - Add Max Memory Size configuration option on workspace when we move it on a Premium capacity.

                  Why ? -
                  Currently any Premium workspace user can abuse capacity usage by adding unlimited number of models.
                  This affects performance of other workspaces which are sharing same premium capacity.
                  Having an upper limit on premium will shield it from affecting other workspace reports peformance.

                  • Dynamically scale up and down power bi premium capacity

                    We notice clear usage patterns in Power BI with a majority of the workload coming during business hour and limited usage outside of business hours.

                    Like power bi embedded I would like to be able to scale up and scale down capacity in order to maximize our value. We could pay the same price, but have more capacity during our busier hours or pay a reduced price because of scaling down during the night.

                    In true cloud tradition I would thus like to exactly pay for what I use

                    • Ability to customize Power BI Homepage. Currently there is not option.

                      Users should be allowed to customize the Power BI service home page. I want to adjust / clean my home page and there is no option now!

                        • Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics - Resource Consumption,

                          I'd like to be able to add a filter by app workspace. Currently, I am unable to edit anything in the Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics app.

                          • Please inform how to check if the current PowerBI license is also Premium.

                            Please inform a way that we can confirm if the current PRO license is Premium or not.

                            • Power BI Premium license for Developers

                              Add simple hourly based Premium license for developers to try new features and be able to support customers when they buy it.

                              Another option would be to provide a paid subscription with a limit of hours per month.

                              As we all know that Premium has the similar back-end as for Embedded capacity. So it can be possible to implement.

                              • PowerBi Premium Serverless - Pay per view

                                Just as Azure Function with consumption plan, the billing model will be per view/session. I.e. if no one use it, its free. If a lot of people use it, it scales automatically and we pay more. It would be nice to have throttling to avoid abuse and an upper spending limit per day/month.

                                • Analyze in Excel usage metric

                                  Just like Power BI Online report usage metrics please provide the capability to track 'Analyze in Excel' usage metric as well. Currently the only way suggested by Microsoft is to extract the information via O365 logs which only the O365 admins can access.

                                  • Enable Subscriptions for Free Users in Premium

                                    For content in a premium capacity, free users should be able to subscribe to reports. This is a huge disadvatge for enterprises making use of the premium license! While other things are on the roadmap such as admins being able to manage subscriptions for others, this feauture is still missing!

                                    • Add Adobe Analytics App Premium capacity

                                      Ability to assign Adobe Analytics app to premium content so non Power BI Pro users can access. I haven't seen a thread on how to accomplish yet so assumed it's not solved.

                                      • PowerBI Home: Customize Home Page with bookmarks

                                        PowerBI's home page is a powerful feature, but with the addition of personal bookmarks, we would like to see a feature where Premium users could add their own personal bookmarks to this page. We're using PowerBI as an enterprise solution, and most of our users are consumers on a Premium license.

                                        In addition to adding personal bookmarks, further customization options could include:

                                        - rearranging/removing tiles
                                        - "learn how to..." videos for report consumers
                                        - pin tiles
                                        - all administrators to add links/content to external resources

                                        • Premium account include features from pro account

                                          I have to pay an premium account to present my dashboards by power bi to my clients and now you are asking me a pro account to access some features in premium account. I've never seen it before
