  3. Add filter options to the 'Export File' API

    The 'Export to file' API endpoint is a great addition to the API, however, I was surprised to see that there is no way of passing in filter/slicer options.

    Bookmarks can be applied, and are suggested as a workaround - but this isn't suitable for our use case.

    We want to be able to generate PDF for sending out to multiple users - but need to set filters programatically - bookmarks wont let us do this.

    Idea: Add Filter Options to the API Request Body - With capabilities similar to the JavaScript embedding API => (Filter Types, Operators, Values, and…

  6. Power BI Deployment Pipeline API or Azure DevOps Release Tasks

    My team is watching a preview of the Power BI Deployment Pipeline right now. We currently use Azure DevOps Pipelines to perform CI/CD for azure and on-prem sites/services. Would love to use the same Azure DevOps release pipeline (and associated approval gates) to deploy Power BI into DEV,QA,PROD environments. A set of API's and/or Release Tasks would be great!

    Work has started for enabling this feature for embedding in the organization (aka User Owns Data). ETA: end of Sep 20.
    For embedding for customers (aka App Owns Data), we are still reviewing the options.

  8. Non-Admin PowerBI REST APIs should also provide below information:

    1.Dashboard metadata such as measures and dimensions of reports used in it.
    2. Owner, create date and update date for Reports and Dashboards
    3. Usage Data on Reports & Dashboards to understand the popularity report wise
    4. PowerBI Workspace Descriptions if any
    5. titles of visuals(bar chart, pie chart... etc visuals) of power bi reports.

  9. REST API - Get Dataset/Report Users

    Returns a list of users that have access to the specified dataset/report. It would be very useful for security audit or in case when access request approval is handled by custom process.

  10. Manage report permissions (Share report etc.) through PowerBI API

    Currently, we do not have the possibility to share reports after programatically deploying them to a workspace. It would be great if we can assign the people the report is meant to be shared with AD Groups while publishing. This would complete the automated pipeline process.

    Roles on the workspaces arent quite sufficient as all reports are visible to all viewers thereby making it cumbersome to share individual reports from one workspace to different audience group.

    A similar request on App level:

  15. GetReportsInGrouAsAdmin Should include report state, i.e. deleted

    When using this API call, it returns all reports, which is fine and useful. However, it doe snot indicate the state of the report, i.e. active, deleted, etc.

    Where this causes some challenge is when reporting on the data that is returned, we are unable to report on the various states of a report and are forced to simply show them all even if they have been deleted subsequently.

  16. 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.

  19. Update Zendesk connector

    The Zendesk connector seems to be outdated. It can't load more than 1000 rows. Please update the connector to simply do multiple requests where each request gets 1k rows until nothing is returned and then union all together. Its really annoing to do this in M Script.

  20. Dataset Refresh Rate Limit API Response Change

    Currently, after the daily 8 request cap is reached the API returns HTTP400. The proper HTTP code would be HTTP429. A Retry-After header in the response would be appreciated as well.

    See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/429
