  2. Real time monitoring of premium capacity

    Like to have the capability to view following metrics on premium capacity nodes in real-time, instead of waiting for premium capacity monitoring app to get refreshed before showing the latest data.

    1. CPU and RAM usage
    2. Scheduled reports list in running and waiting state
    3. All DQ based reports in execution state
    4. Number of active user sessions using premium apps

  3. Power BI Premium license for Developers

    Add simple hourly based Premium license for developers to try new features and be able to support customers when they buy it.

    Another option would be to provide a paid subscription with a limit of hours per month.

    As we all know that Premium has the similar back-end as for Embedded capacity. So it can be possible to implement.

  5. Power BI pro to have same features Premium has

    As original premium whitepaper said, premium supposed to tackle large enterprise deployment and large number of 'readers'; therefore, pro to have the same features provided by premium; and premium to offer better performance or licensing combo offer. [e.g. we have over 450 e5 licenses with power bi pro but less functionalities.

  6. make premium capacities pay-as-you-go model and scale as needed.

    wondering if premium capacities can be made pay-as-you-go model, along with scaling option
    similar to what your peer service teams are doing in Azure..

    At our organization we only need higher premium capacity during high refresh rates on certain times of day, would certainly not like to purchase an entire capacity and keep it idle for most part of the day.

  7. Live connection to an Analysis Services XMLA

    Datasets with a Live connection to an Analysis Services models are not accessible by using XMLA endpoints.

    i.e. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-premium-connect-tools#unsupported-datasets

    This should be supported in my opinion, is this going to be addressed in the future?

  9. at least 100 testing threads PowerBI-Tools-For-Capacities/LoadTestingPowerShellTool

    Hello everybody.

    For the moment the load testing tool for premium capacities
    https://github.com/microsoft/PowerBI-Tools-For-Capacities/tree/master/LoadTestingPowerShellTool
    works only with less than 10 concurrent threads on a single machine.

    It would be convenient to have the ability to improve the tool to work with 100 concurrent threads. Thank you.

  10. More Affordable Premium Nodes

    With XMLA endpoints coming to PBI Premium, this licensing model is becoming very relevant to a lot of smaller organizations and ISVs for whom the dedicated capacity is not necessarily the main selling point for upgrading from Pro licences.
    The option for a premium subscription at a more affordable tier -- with reduced capacity -- would be a great help to all users trying to convince management to make the investment.

  12. Pin visuals from App/Report without pro licence

    Most users in our organisation cannot create a dashboard made by pinning visuals from an app/report. We had originally envisaged used being able to filter a variety of wide-ranging reports and create their own dashboard by pinning their "favourite" visuals to it.

  14. Make accesible the raw data from Power BI premium capacity metrics

    We would need to extend the Capacity Metrics dataset to generate custom reports with additional information, and applying RLS to share the info to the business users which own each workspace. As for now, the dataset can't be modified.

  15. Pinning Datasets to Memory

    In the current state, the Power BI service will evict a dataset from memory if it needs to free up memory for other datasets and if the dataset is relatively idle (not being queried or refreshed). Teams should be able to exclude certain datasets from this behavior to ensure these datasets will always be in memory and thus refreshes and queries will not encounter delays due to loading the dataset back into memory.

  16. Access report as embedded from the app-space without having the app installed

    When a user views a report embedded within SharePoint online or a web-page they will only see this information: “Content is not available”

    This happens when the user doesn’t have the Power BI app that hosts the report installed on his/her Apps dashboard. This happens even if the user has access to the App (in this case the App is shared with “Everybody” (although not installed for everybody). If the user installs the App, he/she will see the report

    The problem is that the end users’ needs to have the Power BI App installed to be able to see the…

  17. Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder

    Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder. Currently, subreports functionality is not enable for Paginated reports in the Power BI Service. This is a common request from our users to design reports that emulate the subreporting functionality they are used to in SSRS

  18. Add support for parameters to Power BI aggregations

    Currently, if you'd like to filter a table using a what-if parameter or a disconnected parameter table, this is not supported in Power BI aggregations. This is true even if the parameter table is stored in stored in dual mode, similar to the dimension tables.

    Instead, if you try to filter by a parameter, the query will revert to DirectQuery mode and not hit the aggregation tables. See this blog post for more detail.
    https://www.sqlgene.com/2019/03/31/parameters-not-yet-supported-in-power-bi-aggregations/

    My understanding is this is currently by design because the parameter value is neither pre-aggregated nor has any mapping.

  19. Add drilldown and Drillthrough capability to CPU utilization chart (Premium Capacity App)

    The current Premium Capacity Metrics app is quite useful (especially with all the new enhancements), however the ability to drilldown on CPU usage would greatly be appreciated.

    At the moment, we can only see the overall CPU usage, without having the ability to pinpoint the datasets/reports that are causing this.
