  1. Access SharePoint pictures where the URL's are secured and not public

    Allow the ability in paginated reports to grab images from SharePoint picture libraries without the public URL being used. Would be ideal to use the user running the report or a service account to run the report on behalf of.

  2. Access .pbix File with .NET library

    It would be grateful if it would be possible to read and write to a .pbix file with a .NET library.
    So it is possible to add or modify connections, DataTables and to modify the model.
    I am a programmer and so it would be possible to programmaticly change and modify a pbix-File

  3. Ability to subscribe to reports in Power BI Embedded

    Please provide an API to allow developers to add the ability for users to subscribe to a report if the report has been embedded into a third party application.

    Currently this can only be done though the Power BI app on PowerBI.com which users won't have access to if Power BI has been embedded.

    This is very useful functionality because users love receiving reports via email. It also means that row-level security (RLS) can be maintained if the report has been scheduled by the user and not by an administrator through PowerBI.com on their behalf.

    This would help us greatly…

  5. Premium Capacity Metrics API

    Please make the Premium Capacity Metrics available via the API. We need to be able to have more than 7 days available. This was mentioned by Josh Caplan in the below video from 2017 and doesn't appear to have ever happened.

  6. Manage paginated report subscription via API

    It's helpful to be able to choose parameters in email subscription. However, when there are too many combinations, it's time consuming to create each of them manually and it's hard to manage. It would be good if the API can help create and manage subscriptions.

  7. PowerBI API Fails with non HTTP 200 and no details of failur when capacity DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) limit is near being reached

    Critical PowerBI API calls fail with non HTTP 200 status and no details in JSON response when capacity DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) limit is near being reached.

    The PowerBI APIs should return with a HTTP 200 status and provide details that the DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) metric is near the capacity level limit or even exceeded it and return a proper status. Right now the API will fail with an HTTP 401 or HTTP 500 completely failing and no JSON or response back.

    We call the Microsoft PowerBI api using the Microsoft.PowerBI.Api NuGet package version 2.5.0

    Examples of places we…

  8. Need a REST API to get Dataflow refresh history

    Datasets have a GET /refreshes API to retrieve the refresh history. We need one similar for Dataflows. There is a POST https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupId}/dataflows/{dataflowId}/refreshes API to start a refresh but there's no API to monitor the success/failure of that refresh currently. Please add a GET https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupId}/dataflows/{dataflowId}/refreshes

  9. Add alias option to M language

    Hello,

    Some functions in power query lib has pretty long names, sapbusinesswarehouseexecutionmode.datastream for instance.

    It would be convenient to be able to make an alias for them as in python or C#.

    sapbusinesswarehouseexecutionmode.datastream as BW.DataStream.

  10. Harmonize M function names

    Hello,
    If i understand correctly, all functions in M using following convention Package.FunctionName.

    It works well WebMethod.Delete, WebMethod.Get, Type.Union, Type.TableRow and so on.

    But there's some of the functions which looks awkward and ruining consistency.

    (Just example, there's additional functions with same naming).

    SapHanaRangeOperator.LessThanOrEquals
    SapHanaDistribution.Statement
    SapHana.Database

    I'm wondering why they named this way?

    Per my understanding all of them should be like:

    SapHana.RangeOperator.LessThanOrEquals
    SapHana.Distribution.Statement
    SapHana.Database

    One dot making naming consistent with rest of functions.

  12. Having ONE and ONLY ONE article that explain how to use the API !

    It's crazy I'm 3h in and I can't figure where on the 10 different website I need to create user, give permission, grant consent of whatever....

    I mean I created a user on Power BI, why in the world there's no simple instruction how to use the API ? Why do I need an account on Azure to be able to create an organization, then create an owner that will be able to grant consent to my app in the azure portal ?!?!?

  13. custom layout for grouping

    There is a dynamic layout on sample site Showcase that rearrange the position of the visuals into columns.
    https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-JavaScript/demo/v2-demo/index.html#
    We are using this feature but the thing is that we are also using grouping in Power BI Desktop, as described here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-grouping-visuals

    Some of our visuals are grouped as whole.
    When group of visuals is embedded while also using custom layout. The group got separated and our design based on the grouping will not be displayed.
    We would like keep the visuals grouped(as it is displayed in Power BI Desktop) and not separated when it is embedded with custom…

  16. Connect to custom HTMl page and return data

    Allow to connect to a custom html page that has custom input field and buttons such as username , password ,client id and submit button. Once the input fields are filled and submit button is clicked ,the page will process internally and return data to Power BI. The data returned could be of any format acceptable to Power BI.

    Actually the flow could be like this :

    Go to > Power BI dekstop > getData > Web > Place a URL > Url would open a custom html page consisting input fields and buttons like username, password and submit button…

  17. Return Capacity ID when provisioning Embedded

    When provisioning embedded capacity through Azure Resource Manager, return the Capacity ID.

    This will allow immediate use of the Capacity ID for subsequent Power BI API calls needed for configuration.

    Currently, we are forced to perform a look inside Power BI API which is slow.

    It would be optimal and logical for the provisioning request to return the ID of what it has provisioned.

  18. Provide method of searching/filtering capacity list

    Currently, the capacities API returns an entire list of all capacities. This is slow and heavy as the number of capacities increase. This leads to slower response times, increased traffic and processing, and reduced performance of Power BI API services.

    This request is to provide a method by which server side filtering can be performed to return a partial list of capacities.

    Ideas for what value could be filtered are:
    - id
    - displayName
    - sku
    - state
    - region
    - capacityUserAccessRight

  20. Add search report/dashboard functionality to PowerBI REST API

    There is a search function on PowerBI homepage which can search for reports or dashboards. But the feature is not available in PowerBI REST API so far.

    It should be very useful if the PowerBI REST API can support this feature.
