  1. Custom connector functions invokeable for end user

    It would be a great enhancement of the custom connector API if the end user could invoke the custom connector's functions using Power BI desktop.

  2. Copy protect custom connectors

    Currently, all custom connectors (even certified ones) are delivered in either mez or pqx files. Renaming them as zip files, you can easily open them and check for the code. I's a good way to learn language m and custom connector design, but it's not copy protected in any way.

    In case the Power BI team wants to enable people selling their custom connectors, you will want to give them some peace of mind that noone can actually copy your source code.

  6. connector

    Hello,

    We would like Power BI to have a webpage
    (similar to this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/desktop-data-sources)
    where we can go to see when updates/changes are made or will happen to connectors like Snowflake.
    For example, Snowflake has changed from Snowflake.ini to microsoft.snowflakeodbc.ini.

    This would be a great help! Thank you

  7. Allow custom data connector to use R.Execute

    I need regex matching which is available in R but the presence of R.Execute in my code results in my data connector not being available as a data source.

  10. Copy multi-row in table visualization.

    I want to just copy multi-row in a table. I think this is pretty normal a demand after you perform the filter.

  12. Graph Databases

    PowerBI should be able to talk to Graph Databases like graphDB and CosmosDB, by directly using graph queries from the query editor and compiling it into a table

  14. Enable Custom Connectors to explicitly declare table relationships

    When building a custom connector table relationships are known ahead of time. However there is no way to declare table relationships so they can be imported. This leaves users having to fix up the relationships manually.

    I propose the following options:


    • The ability to add foreign keys to a table

    • Or the ability export table relationships (along with the Navigation table).

    There are some pre-existing discussions on GitHub, as the documentation attempts to provide an example of doing this. However the sample code does not actually address this issue (because the approach is flawed, and it's not actually possible).

  15. Pass-through SQL functions

    Power BI does not currently provide the ability to run pass thru SQL functions on data, but Tableau does. Pass thru functions allow the ability to run SQL operations directly on the database without the operation being interpreted by the BI service.

  18. Ability to create custom connectors written in Python

    Python is a versatile programming language for API calls and data manipulation. It would be great to be able to create Custom connectors written in Python instead of Power Query M Formula Language.

  19. Fix Teradata connection link so that parameters can be added for connection

    Power BI can't connect to our enterprise Teradata system because (1) There's no place to put in the Data Source (not talking about the Server). (2) There's no place to put in the mechanism (LDAP). And, (3) There's no place to put in the port number. Not sure why you market this product as Teradata compatible, but is very misleading since it doesn't even have a place for the parameters to be entered.

  20. Poderia ter um link diretamente na parte de Graficos do Excel, que direcionasse a abertura para a criação de gráficos no PBI para conversão

    Poderia ter um link diretamente na parte de Graficos do Excel, que direcionasse a abertura para a criação de gráficos no PBI para conversão no word e vice versa. Para apresentação offline em lugares que só tem excel.
