  3. 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).

  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. 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.

  6. Impala Request Pool Needed

    When a Cloudera Hadoop platform is shared between multiple on-premise tenants, the PowerBI Desktop report should use a specific request pool(Request_pool) to execute any SQL.

    The user needs to pass “SSPREQUESTPOOL=abcpool” as part of a connection string or execute initially “set REQUEST_POOL= abcpool;” statement for every session.

    Can you modify the Impala Connector to allow for a Request Pool option?

  8. Enable Custom Connectors to explicitly declare table relationships

    When building a custom connector table relationships are known ahead of time. However there is no way to declare table relationships so they can be imported. This leaves users having to fix up the relationships manually.

    I propose the following options:


    • The ability to add foreign keys to a table

    • Or the ability export table relationships (along with the Navigation table).

    There are some pre-existing discussions on GitHub, as the documentation attempts to provide an example of doing this. However the sample code does not actually address this issue (because the approach is flawed, and it's not actually possible).

  10. Pass-through SQL functions

    Power BI does not currently provide the ability to run pass thru SQL functions on data, but Tableau does. Pass thru functions allow the ability to run SQL operations directly on the database without the operation being interpreted by the BI service.

  12. Custom connector functions invokeable for end user

    It would be a great enhancement of the custom connector API if the end user could invoke the custom connector's functions using Power BI desktop.

  13. Copy protect custom connectors

    Currently, all custom connectors (even certified ones) are delivered in either mez or pqx files. Renaming them as zip files, you can easily open them and check for the code. I's a good way to learn language m and custom connector design, but it's not copy protected in any way.

    In case the Power BI team wants to enable people selling their custom connectors, you will want to give them some peace of mind that noone can actually copy your source code.

  17. connector

    Hello,

    We would like Power BI to have a webpage
    (similar to this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/desktop-data-sources)
    where we can go to see when updates/changes are made or will happen to connectors like Snowflake.
    For example, Snowflake has changed from Snowflake.ini to microsoft.snowflakeodbc.ini.

    This would be a great help! Thank you

  18. Allow custom data connector to use R.Execute

    I need regex matching which is available in R but the presence of R.Execute in my code results in my data connector not being available as a data source.

  20. Copy multi-row in table visualization.

    I want to just copy multi-row in a table. I think this is pretty normal a demand after you perform the filter.
