  1. Allow custom headers for authenticated API calls

    Currently it is not possible to add a custom header to a web request when authentication is applied. (https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Connecting-to-an-API-with-basic-authentication-and-custom-header/m-p/795350#M382844)

    According to the reported error, only the following headers are supported:

    Accept, Accept-Charset, Accept-Encoding, Accept-Language, Cache-Control, Content-Type, If-Modified-Since, Prefer, Referer

    This is a very strange constraint given that APIs can have all manner of odd requirements and are not equally bound by them. For example, the ConnectWise API requires authentication and a header called "clientid" to indicate the application requesting the data.

    I understand why you would need to control the headers that can be applied to web requests…

  4. Extract all SharePoint list versions

    We would like to be able to extract all SharePoint record versions in a list. The current connector only displays the most current version of the record in SharePoint. We would like to be able to pull older versions of the records also. This way we could do analysis on things like 'How long has the record been in this status' or 'When was the record assigned to this person'.

  6. Access Power BI Service Data set with SSMS Linked Server

    It would be very useful to be able to create a linked server in SSMS that connects to a data set in the Power BI premium service. Currently you can connect to one using SSMS but a linked server would allow for use in stored procedures, etc.

  8. Limit to number of refreshes using direct query

    At present Direct query has a refresh limitation of 48 times per day with a premium license.

    It would great if such a limitation is removed in the future to allow true integration with Web applications using Javascript API- Direct Query data source.

  9. Add support for BigQuery BI Engine

    Google Cloud has BigQuery BI Engine in Beta. Support was announced for Google DataStudio and Looker. PowerBI should leverage BigQuery BI Engine in order to access native, intelligently cached datasets without requiring a data transfer to PowerBI.

  10. Support "Resource based quota" in Google Analytics connector to reduce sampling

    A big problem with working with Google Analytics in Power BI is sampling.

    To reduce this issue the reporting API v4 allows the use of "resource based quota".

    This allow for no sampling up to 100M session, wereas Analytics 360 allows for only 1M sessions and Analytics standard allows for 500k sessions.

    Source:
    https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/core/v4/resource-based-quota#introduction

  11. Connect Power BI directly to Forms

    Currently, the only ways I know to visualize Forms data in PBI is to use Flow or embed the form on a website. Being able to connect PBI directly to a Forms data responses would make creating a report much easier and efficient.

    (You can connect to Survey Monkey but you can't connect to Forms. Doesnt seem right)

  12. MSSQL STORED PROCEDURE ile Doğrudan Veri Çekilsin ve Rapor Düzenlenebilsin.

    MSSQL STORED PROCEDURE Sorgusu çekiyoruz. Fakat rapor düzenlemek için soruguyu kaydetmeye izin vermiyor.
    Ya da konuya bir çözüm üretirseniz bizi büyük bir yükten kurtarmış olursunuz. Ayrıca Power bi çok önemli bir özellik kazanmış olur. Saygılar.

  13. Load definitions from Business Glossary / other external source

    Definition tooltips for metrics, filters, etc should be able to be connected to an external source of the definition. We have a wide range of reports reusing the same terms, and need to be able to centrally manage the definitions and then displaying them to users.
    Business Glossary in Data Catalog seems like it could be one way of integrating this, but support for other sources would also be interesting.

  14. Year 7 data missing for primary schools

    Primary schools need to be able to view Year 7 students' growth data, trend, etc. Used to be able to view it in the old SMART Data program. Missing a significant piece of useful data at the moment.

  17. Show data source of OneDrive / SharePoint files

    Display the file path of any data sources, including PBIX files, that are sourced from OneDrive or SharePoint and thus make use of hourly refresh (when enabled).

    Currently there is no way to determine the path. So when wanting to view (or if possible could it be changed?) there is no way of knowing.

    This is important when hosting a PBIX file on SP/OD and wanting to modify that same file.

  20. Datastore connections

    Power BI (demo) doesn't seem to want to connect to any datastores I use. ACT! (MSSQL), Foxpro or dBase tables, Excel. Nothing connects and therefore I am unable to evaluate the product for use. Is this by design?
