  1. Customized refresh frequency in Power BI

    Ability to custom refresh manual or scheduled refresh for few tables instead of all the tables in Power BI Service.

    Current situation: I have 7 tables in my data model which are refreshed weekly. Out of these 7 tables there is one table which needs to be refreshed on a daily basis. Unfortunately after all my research I see there is no option to custom refresh tables and all these 7 have to be refreshed on a daily basis because of that one table.

    My idea is to choose custom table refresh frequency where 1 table can be refreshed on…

  5. automate install and registration of data gateway by scripts

    For enterprise systems, the VM for the gateways sometimes are provisioned by automated systems without human manual process, but the gateway needs to be installed by a human due to the UI installer and the login process.

    Can the gateway be installed, login, register, test connection completely by using scripts ?

  6. Should have an Option to make a copy of Existing Gateway to test when to Move Gateways to Other Server.

    We are deploying gateway to new servers to replace existing. To ensure a smooth transition, we need to replicate existing gateways configuration (data sources - db type, server, port, credentials) in advance to mitigate risk and validate.

  7. mulitple entries in gateway for the same database

    It would be useful to be able to mulitple entries in gateway for the same database because the access level may be different. We have one database and multiple schemas for our warehouse and we do not want to expose all schemas.

  9. Edit gateway connection

    The idea in short:

    1) We should be able to alter the server name used for a data source in the enterprise data gate way

    2) We should be able to choose other data sources of the same data source type when mapping data set data sources to enterprise gateway data sources

    BACKGROUND
    Today you can rename and change credentials for a data source in the enterprise data gateway, but you can not change the data source type nor the server it is pointing to. I can understand the limitation on changing data source type - but to be able…

  16. On Premise Gateway Reading Proxy from Environment Variables

    Provide functionality for On Premise Gateway to read proxy from the environment variables setup on the server. In some scenarios, the direct ports are not opened within the organization and the only option to connect data source is through the https_proxy or http_proxy. Power BI Desktop is able to read these proxy from environment variable however, it fails for gateway.

  17. Make on-premises data gateway Enterprise ready

    User should be able to create their own data source connection without having admin rights to the Power BI Data Gateway. There should create data source rights.

    Admin rights give ability to see each connection which isn't secure.

    Users have to depend on Power BI Admin to create data connection each time and provide Server, Database, UserID, and password details to Admin each time they create a new database connection.

  20. Personal Gateway Point to Specific Python Version / Venv Location

    Just as you can point your Power BI desktop version to a specific python installation, I would like to be able to point the python Data Source credentials in my Personal Gateway to a specific location.

    Currently I get an error because Power BI is not compatible with the latest version of python (3.7.4); therefore I point the Desktop to my python 3.7.1 location which does work. However, when I try to refresh this on my personal Gateway, I can only do so using the default system python which of course fails.
