  1. Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API

    The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!

  2. Extract comments from API

    With the newly released functionality of commenting for reports, it would be great to be able to retrieve these using the API in order to create summaries or overviews of the comments in a separate report.

  3. "Import" REST Api call doesn’t work when Importing PBI report consuming existing dataset and with cross tenant

    "Import" REST Api call doesn’t work when Importing PBI report consuming existing dataset and importing with cross tenant account. I have already raised a MS Support ticket (119012526003971) but got response that its not possible at present and need to raise a new idea.
    Scenario:
    • Create Report in Dev Env.
    o Create PBI report (e.g. mypbireport1.pbix) using Powerbi desktop and AAD account (e.g. abcdev@test.com), which is connecting to external Datasource and then publish to a workspace e.g. devws. It creates dataset in Powerbi service with name as mypbireport1. (we can use either PBI desktop or Powershell REST API…

  4. Power BI Embeded A1 slower then free embedded tokens

    Using the dedicated azure Power BI Embedded A1 feature is at least 4x slower than the trial (free tokens) feature.

    NOTE *: With only one user generating the report.

    NOTE **: This is happening using resource allocation in South America (Brazil)

    Something that makes no sense, the free and shared feature, being faster than paid and dedicated. Even more starting at $ 735 a month.

  5. Embed a Power BI App (with new app navigation)

    The ability to embed a Power BI app is required. This is not a Workspace app, but the separate apps on the side which consolidates different reports and dashboards with the new app navigation.

    It currently is possible to embed reports and dashboards, but it is not possible for a published app. We would like to utilise the new app navigation in our organisation's web portal after embedding the entire app.

  6. Use REST API to export report to PowerPoint

    Hi,
    Now that PowerBI Team has made possible to export reports to PowerPoint (GREAT JOB!), it would be awesome to be able to call this function through REST API to an embedded frame. Thanks!

  7. Microsoft Word POWER BI Add-on

    Other than the Devscope Power BI addon which does not work the way I expected, Can Microsoft provide a POWER BI Add-on which allows us to insert or copy a particular visual into the word document? I'd like to copy paste a particular chart/graph from power BI web/desktop like we can copy graphs from Excel into Word. I tried to export the Power BI report into a powerpoint file but since we have over 15 pages in this PBI Report this was not allowed.

    Surely Microsoft can provide this integration between their own products?

    I have been using Snagit to…

  9. Row level security (RLS) - automate maintenance

    Given that there is a significant focus on Enterprise features in Power BI, I am surprised that there is not automated solution for row level security (RLS). For datasets that don't use underlying database solution, it is a very manual activity to mange RLS.

    It would be good to have a solution to automate the activities for Row Level security

    - Adding users (including bulk upload)
    - Removing users (including bulk upload
    - Extracting the list of existing users along with the role

    I think the options could be:

    - Rest API
    - Sql Server Management Studio
    - CSV download…

  10. Export Power BI report template using PowerShell script

    Export Power BI report as PBIT using PowerShell or C# to automate the process. Power BI is currently supporting manual process to export PBIT files. However, it is tedious process when you have 100s of reports scattered on multiple workspaces.

  11. Embedding Q&A experience for multiple datasets

    Power BI Embedded service supports embedding Q&A for a single dataset in the Power BI workspace at a given point of time. However, it does not support embedding Q&A on multiple datasets simultaneously. Would be really helpful if this feature is enabled/developed.

  13. Allow filters in the url for an embedded report

    Right now it is possible, to open an report through an url filterd by Attributes in the link (add ?filter at the end of the url). This is not possible for a link to an embedded url.

    Please add the same filter function from the standard url to the embedded url.

  14. Return Additional Dataset Meta Data in the Get Dataset REST APIs

    When querying using the Get Datasets REST APIs, such as GetDatasetsAsAdmin, the response includes the following metadata:

    "id": "f807dfc4-b962-4513-88f5-b21771e52dcf",
    "name": "SCNR3_POPL_WITH _50PERCENT_NULLS",
    "addRowsAPIEnabled": false,
    "configuredBy": "linda.sarace@redcross.org",
    "isRefreshable": true,
    "isEffectiveIdentityRequired": false,
    "isEffectiveIdentityRolesRequired": false,
    "isOnPremGatewayRequired": false,
    "targetStorageMode": "Abf"

    We would also like the query or new REST APIs to return:
    1. Endorsement (ex: Certified)
    2. Description
    3. Permissions by email address (ex: linda.sarace@redcross.org:App (build), reshare)

  15. Custom Python Library in Power BI

    It would be great to have the ability to use our own custom python library inside PowerBI web. This helps improve code readability and shorten script code console.

    At the moment we can install our own library and can display in Power BI Desktop, but published this visual will give an error.

    It's great to have the ability to install our library from git to PowerBi web.

  16. Auto Mobile View Embeding/Publishing to Public Web

    Hi,

    I am a GIS professional just trying out Power BI for about a week now. I really like the desktop tool, however I mostly plan to publish my report in various websites, publicly available. I tried and published to web from Power BI online account, all works great except it does not automatically switch to mobile view when opened with a mobile device, even though I have separately designed a mobile version of the report using the desktop tool. Also really annoying to have a "Report Issue" button on the online Power BI, but it fails to sign me…

  17. power bi embedded printing

    For Power BI Embedded, i would like to see a facility to print a dashboard page (not the whole report) to PDF.

    My user group regularly asks about this. Using Snipping Tool is not really good enough.

    My dashboard has 20 pages so printing the whole report to PDF would not work.

  18. Embed the real time reports of power Bi to Power Point

    Currently, Power Bi allows you to embed reports into web. But it would be really useful if Power BI embed gives you the option to display real time reports (Live reports) from web to power point.

    Now that Mobile has single-click interaction enabled, please provide a similar mechanism for developers working with Power BI Embedded

  20. Limit paging changes in Edit Mode

    Allow hiding of the page navigation tabs for an embedded report in Edit Mode, or otherwise prevent the adding, moving, or removing of pages while allowing other kinds of edits.

    This would allow application of page-level JavaScript filters to be applied to the appropriate pages, and keep other programmatic page-based logic from becoming out-of-sync with an editable report.
