  1. Enable on-premise PowerBI the ability to show webpages from others servers.

    Hi, I have PowerBI reporting server on-premise. (on trial) I also have lots of other servers on-premise. These servers are mature and have reporting tools of their own. Reports and visuals have been created on these servers as web pages. To save me from having to re-write them all into PowerBI on-premise reports server, can you allow me the functionality to create a tile on the PowerBI server which loads up the web page of the other servers on site. Currently, PowerBI in the cloud let's you embed webpages from other sources, so I was surprised to see the on-premise…

      • PBIRS full screen button

        Could a full screen button be added to PowerBI Report Server? Possibly to the far right of the status bar where the page tabs appear.

        • PBIRS Add buttons for Fit to Width/Page/Actual Size/Percentage to right of status bar

          In PowerBI Reporting Services, a bar appears along the bottom which lists the pages / tabs. To the right of this bar, could a menu button be added which gives a choice of scaling the page: "Fit to Width", "Fit to Page", and possibly a few other zoom percentage sizes (50, 75, 100, 125, 150).

            • Report Server Schedule End time

              Add the ability to set an end time for scheduled refreshes.
              I would like to be able to do regular refreshes e.g. every 10mins but only during a small period such as 8am to 10am.

              • More page customisation in PBI Report Server

                Allow more page customisation within report server so that it can truly serve as a Portal / Interface for the business and remove the need for SharePoint being the initial interface where you can really customize the page layout and embed objects and text.
                - Text formatting on pages i.e. adding a paragraph about what's contained within this folder.
                - Allowing frames for certain SSRS reports or PBI reports to run within the page without actually going into the report, similar to KPI but more extensive use of the actual MS reporting tools
                - Allow the rearrangement of folders and…

                  • Auto-hide option for visual header

                    If beforehand you know users will zoom in a lot it would be useful to show that option straight away. In Visual header we have quite some options, but we miss an "Auto-hide" option which is set to On by default. That way we would be able to set it to off and always have the buttons like "Drill Down" present.

                      • Download a Dataset on Power BI Report Server to Excel

                        Users and Report Builders on Power BI Report Server should be able to export datasets that they have access to Excel. This would help company analysts cut down on ad-hoc reporting since users can't utilize Q&A functionality on Report Server.

                          • Analyize in Excel for Report Server

                            Please add the option to Analyize in Excel for Report Server.
                            Many users need to slice and dice the data using the pivot with the connection to SSAS cubes. If my model is in PowerBI, without SQL tabular cube - there is no option to analyze it with Excel.
                            You've already implemented such feature in the Service.
                            Please do it for Report Server also
                            Thank you

                              请考虑将ReportServer部署的本地报表增加一个全屏按钮,可以让报表或者仪表盘的展示可以实现全屏效果,并在全屏界面下增加一个浮动的按钮,可以取消全屏,切换展示的页面;具体功能希望能够和Power bi Server版本上展示全屏和取消全屏的效果一样;

                                  • Allow URL redirect after session inactivity timeout

                                    Current PBI Report Server does not enforce a period of session inactivity. In the event a user leaves their machine unattended, it could allow for an attacker to access the website using another user’s credentials. The lack of this ability increases system exposure to data breech. PBI Report Server should provide the ability to terminate browser session and redirect to a logout URL. This feature is key for Enterprise solutions to meet the security requirements.

                                    • Align PBI Desktop and PBI Services

                                      For me is very frustrating the fact that I have a lot of reports using PBI Desktop and as soon I want to publish it on PBI Service, half of the features won't work, like:
                                      Combine datasource, have function with datasoure with parameters, datasources with annonymous authentication...

                                      Can both be aligned? either add the same functionalities on PBI Services or remove them from PBI Desktop?

                                      • Visual Studio SSDT style report deployment of Power BI files to Power BI Report Server

                                        Many of us using Power BI Report Server are doing so because the Power BI Service is not an option, and the typical BI development process requires the use of TFS or some other source control tool to manage our environments. Those who create RDL-based/paginated reports are very comfortable with the Visual Studio, SSDT deployment process. Power BI Report Server is out of sync with that process, as there is currently no way to trigger a new Power BI report creation from within Visual Studio, and no integrated method of deploying Power BI reports or PBI Template to PBI Report…

                                        • Add support for IBM Netezza DirectQuery in Power BI Report Server

                                          As indicated in, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/data-sources, Power BI Report Server currently only supports a IBM Netezza data sources with cached data. As this is not really useful, it would be ideal to add support for Power BI Reports that use a DirectQuery connection to IBM Netezza.
