  1. See lineage for gateway connections

    It would be great to have a lineage view when editing the gateway data sources to see which datasets that use which data source in the gateway.

    Use cases are for instance to easily identify data sources that are no longer used or reports that use data sources that have been replaced by others.

  2. Show datasets, reports and dashboards that are using a specific gateway data source

    Our customer has an enterprise gateway with a number of SSAS cubes on premise. We have no way of knowing what reports, dashboards and datasets will break if we change a cube.
    This info isnt available on the portal.
    Please implement this as an administrative data flow or report so administrators can quickly see all of the data and filter by connection strings etc rather than clicking through tons of things in the service portal.

  3. On-Premise Data Gateway - Switch Accounts Feature

    Install the on-premise Data Gateway and setup using a master account. Notice that there is no way to logout and / or switch to another account. The workaround is to uninstall the gateway and reinstall to reconfigure the gateway account.

  5. Allow users to choose gateways for their datasets without being gateway admins

    If a user uploads a data set to Power BI, it would be nice to be able to allow them to pick a gateway to refresh their data without necessarily being an admin of the gateway. Currently, the user must be an admin to even select the gateway. We might want configuration of gateways to be restricted to a more technical user base, while allowing less technical report authors to make use of them.

  6. Gateway template is not working as expected

    I tried the following instruction on my on-prem gateway and only one file SystemCounterAggregationReport is generated. How can I troubleshoot it? I have the latest version of the on-prem gateway.

  8. Allow data sources for a gateway to be filtered and sorted

    It would be useful to sort the data sources defined on a gateway by name, or even better to be able to filter the name. This would make admin simpler.

  9. Data Gateway configuration - ability to update details

    As I understand it, once a PBI Data Gateway data source has been set up, it is not possible to update the source server (or other details) when databases move (as they do quite a bit hereabouts). I am told we have to set up the data source afresh and then go chasing all the PBI files that use it and switch sources - this is far too cumbersome). Please provide data source configuration editting ability.

  12. Greater Control of Gateway Cluster List

    I'd like to be able to group gateways together based locally defined criteria; and then be able to sort those gateways within the group either by alpha order or date of creation or whatever I choose. I have full ability to sort my bank accounts; why not DMGs :) ?

  13. Can't start network test without signing in first.

    Network ports test without sign in? Right now, I can't see what's going on without signing in first.

  16. Don't make me click through Gateway Connection to get to Data Source Credentials

    When trying to set Data Source Credentials for Datasets, I'm first forced to click to open Gateway Connections. After that opens up, then I'm able to click for Data Source Credentials.

    Instead, just allow users to click to Data Source Credentials.

  17. Remove Personal Gateway automatically for users who have left the organization

    When the user is no longer part of the organization, their Personal Gateway should be automatically deleted from the Power BI service. Currently, there is no mechanism to do this apart from taking over the user account and logging in as the user. Even though the Personal Gateway cannot be used for refreshes, it clogs up the personal gateway lists and makes it difficult to identify which ones need to be actioned upon.
