  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. 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. 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 :-)

  11. Servicenow

    Why is ServiceNow Connector restricted to Incidents? We also need the facility to visual RITM's in categories, employee onboarding/separations, etc.

  16. Adobe Captivate Prime Oauth2 Connector

    I have been trying to build a simple connection to the Adobe Captivate Prime APIs without success due to the complexity of getting authenticated via Oauth2. Tried following the MyGraph Oauth tutorial but was unable to get authenticated. Adding the ability to sing in with my O365 credentials to access the Adobe APIs would be VERY helpful for me.

  17. Show Custom Documentation for M Functions

    It would be really useful to have a way to show custom Meta/Documentation records in the display along with the default ones (Name, Description, LongDescription, Examples). For example, it would be nice to display the author and the date of the last update to the function.

  18. Azure tables support with SAS tokens

    Please add an ability to connect to an Azure Table with SAS token instead of an account key. This is a must have feature in cases where we want visualization for elements for an already existing storage account but don't want to add access to the whole.

  19. 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.
