  2. Send Refresh Failure Notifications to Distribution List

    It would be helpful to be able to set up a distribution list of those to send refresh failure notifications to. Currently, only the owner receives an email, but we have several administrators that require notification when certain reports fail.

  4. Allow data sources for a gateway to be filtered and sorted

    It would be useful to sort the data sources defined on a gateway by name, or even better to be able to filter the name. This would make admin simpler.

  5. Combine multiple Gateway in single dataset/report

    Currently, all data sources in a Power BI report/dataset, that are not on cloud, must be available in a single Gateway to work.

    But if the datasources in the report are coming from different Gateways, that doesn't work. It is not possible to combine them for refresh.

    Say I have a Sales Report. It connects to DB A, B and C.

    DB A and B is configured in Gateway X
    DB C is configured in Gateway Y.

    The report creator have been provided access to all of them.

    Now if I try to configure data refresh in PBI Service, it…

  6. Greater Control of Gateway Cluster List

    I'd like to be able to group gateways together based locally defined criteria; and then be able to sort those gateways within the group either by alpha order or date of creation or whatever I choose. I have full ability to sort my bank accounts; why not DMGs :) ?

  7. Pass SSO user credentials through the Power BI gateway

    We need the user SSO credentials to be passed through Gateway connections to Denodo Data Virtualisation layer to be able to securely federate our data/analytics report queries

  8. SAP

    Connect to SAP BW with single-sign-on via on-premise gateway

    Large SAP BW installations with thousands of users are often accessed via single-sign-on (SSO) e.g. the users windows credentials are used to authenticate to BW. SSO simplifies the user experience and reduces user administration costs. These users should be able to setup on-premise gateway connections that can be used to refresh data sets in the Power BI Service. The connections should leverage that individuals BW roles & authorizations and not require a BW password i.e. automatically associate the Power BI user ID to the associated SAP user ID.

  9. Show datasets, reports and dashboards that are using a specific gateway data source

    Our customer has an enterprise gateway with a number of SSAS cubes on premise. We have no way of knowing what reports, dashboards and datasets will break if we change a cube.
    This info isnt available on the portal.
    Please implement this as an administrative data flow or report so administrators can quickly see all of the data and filter by connection strings etc rather than clicking through tons of things in the service portal.

  10. Gateway Usage monitoring tools for Power BI Service

    As Power Bi and other applications in the Power Platform become more prolific within the BI Cloudscape and Landscape integration, gateways will become used more and more. Having visibility to the capacity of a gateway, the volume of traffic through the gateway, which datasources are used more frequently than others, which types, etc would be a very useful resource to have within the Gateway management system.

  11. Support for docker installation

    It Would be nice to install PowerBi gateway to docker instead of dedicated virtual machine. Dedicated VM -> just waste of resources, docker offers better automation and failover as well.

  12. Allow users to choose gateways for their datasets without being gateway admins

    If a user uploads a data set to Power BI, it would be nice to be able to allow them to pick a gateway to refresh their data without necessarily being an admin of the gateway. Currently, the user must be an admin to even select the gateway. We might want configuration of gateways to be restricted to a more technical user base, while allowing less technical report authors to make use of them.

  13. See lineage for gateway connections

    It would be great to have a lineage view when editing the gateway data sources to see which datasets that use which data source in the gateway.

    Use cases are for instance to easily identify data sources that are no longer used or reports that use data sources that have been replaced by others.

  14. On-Premise Data Gateway - Switch Accounts Feature

    Install the on-premise Data Gateway and setup using a master account. Notice that there is no way to logout and / or switch to another account. The workaround is to uninstall the gateway and reinstall to reconfigure the gateway account.

  16. Update gateways from online portal

    Be able to push updates to gateways from Manage Gateways menu online instead of having to log into the server and run manually

  18. Active Directory/Microsoft Account authentication in Power BI Gateway for SQL Server

    To setup SQL Server (Azure SQL Managed Instance) datasources in Power BI gateway, we have two authentication methods: Windows, Basic. There is no option for Organizational Accounts/Active Directory/Microsoft Account.

    Please introduce this, as we are trying to limit SQL user access, and rather rely on Active Directory

  19. Data Gateway configuration - ability to update details

    As I understand it, once a PBI Data Gateway data source has been set up, it is not possible to update the source server (or other details) when databases move (as they do quite a bit hereabouts). I am told we have to set up the data source afresh and then go chasing all the PBI files that use it and switch sources - this is far too cumbersome). Please provide data source configuration editting ability.

  20. Gateway template is not working as expected

    I tried the following instruction on my on-prem gateway and only one file SystemCounterAggregationReport is generated. How can I troubleshoot it? I have the latest version of the on-prem gateway.
