  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. Denodo Direct Query in Power BI Report Server

    Denodo Direct Query has been available in Power BI Server but not Power BI Report Server yet. Can we make this feature also available in PBI RS?

  5. modifying the data source path in a custom connector

    I would like to raise an enhancement request for the extension data source path in a custom connector to be able to be modified by the connector, rather than be hard-coded, based on the non-optional parameters.

    We have a corporate REST API which we would like reported through Power BI. This is a typical API which allows access to datasets via urls like:

    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'AUSTRALIA'
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'USA'&top=100
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'UK'
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'CHINA'

    We require this API to be accessible to Power BI. The built-in web connector is not suitable as it would require too much manipulation of…

  7. Custom Connectors should offer the possibility to get authenticated username

    A very usefull feature would be if the m-language would allow to get the username of the currently logged in user in the Power BI service to implement Row Level Security for DirectQuery datasources. A corresponding issue was originally raised at github https://github.com/Microsoft/DataConnectors/issues/182 .

    This request would allow all custom connector authors to see if this can be handled in their source.

  9. Separate pop-up window with details to open when a specific event is clicked.

    I have a requirement from a client in which he wants me to design a Power BI Report with Popups. Once Tooltips are added to the field, hovering over a data point on the visualization shows the values for those fields in the Tooltip. But the information goes off once you remove the cursor from that field. Do we have a functionality in which if I click a field, a popup should be open and it should remain frozen till the time I do not click in/out of the window again?

  11. Robinhood Connector

    I want to connect to Robinhood so that I can build my own custom reports for different stocks including when I purchased the stocks, dividends received, % of my portfolio, etc. From what I've read, it looks like they have an API, but I don't know how to use it as I don't know cURL

  12. Enable SSL connectivity for Spark Standard Protocol

    As of the June 2019 release of Power BI, the Spark connector only allows unencrypted connections to Spark with the Standard protocol. It would be great to have the option to use the Standard protocol with SSL because we find it so much faster.

  13. Social Media platform connector

    It will be great if we get a Microsoft connector for Social Media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, YouTube etc.

    The analysis becomes easy and all data we can have in Power BI itself.

    Right now third party connector is not helping because of security reasons and manual process of extracting data and feeding is time-consuming.

    I hope we get an early update for this in Power BI because this will be a game changer if this gets updated soon.

    Regards,
    Aditya Vighne

  15. Power BI REST API connector for Power BI Desktop

    Create a connector to Power BI REST API so tenant/workspace admins have visibility into gateways, data sources, data source users, apps, workspaces, etc. Right now we can't use Power BI Desktop to query that information and build governance/oversight reporting. It's a huge missing piece for enterprise deployments.

  17. Human Blockchain - Real time Upwork/Freelancer/Air Tasker Project management

    Instead of leaping to AI we should be partitioning aspects of roles to people through automation. Gig, Chunk, Part, Specialisation, etc.

    For instance I'm good on phone, but slow at typing. I'm creative, but cannot code, I can see gaps, but miss the basics, I am pig picture and small minute picture.

    Let's get smarter with our collaboration and use Flow, BI, Sharepoint, VOIP, Bitcoin, Delve etc to create a true global assembly line of idea, app, BI, efficiencies program to wipe all of the premature AGI gold diggers off the planet. Through developing a beautifully succinct model and including…

  20. Add Sprint meta data to Azure DevOps Connector

    An Azure DevOps connector (currently in beta) is available for testing. We can extract a lot of data about the work items, and that is fine.

    However - to provide more high-level insights to users, we need Sprint data as well.

    So in short:

    Please add these data artifacts to the possible items to extract:

    Sprints
    * start time
    * end time
    * work items associated

    Also - it would be great if numbers like "Team velocity" could be extracted as well.

    Thank you :-)
