  1. Hide Filters pane on Power BI Report Server

    Is there any possiblity to hide Filters pane in Power BI Report server. We don't want to show the filters been used to external clients in our report for unnecessary discussion on calls.

    Something like &filterPaneEnabled=false in Power BI Report Server

  2. Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

    Power BI Report Server should have an option to open the report in Full Screen mode just as it has an option in Power BI Service . When we open reports in Power BI Report Server , we can view page in 3 options 1:) Fit to Width , 2:) Fit to Page and 3:) Actual size . Issue with these three mode is the page and header consumes a lot of space and we need to scroll to view to full report .

  3. Increase the data export row limit (30,000 rows max) in Power BI Report Server

    The capability to export raw data from Power BI is an important function for many users.

    Presently, the export data limits are as follows and confirmed at the community link below.

    - Power BI Service (cloud platform): 150,000 row maximum
    - Power BI Report Server (on-premise platform): 30,000 row maximum

    Please increase the export limit setting on Report Server to match that of Service. Better yet, increase them both to a much higher limit as requested by others in separate idea posts.

  4. Embed Power BI Report Server reports into extranet apps

    Allow Embedding of Power BI Report Server Reports for Extranet Apps. Because of our clients needs data cannot leave our servers and be put on the cloud. Our existing SSRS reports are displayed using a report viewer object, however this will not work for PBIX. We need to ability to embed PBIX and display it externally. Is this going to be possible with Power BI report Server?

    Wanted to post an update to one of the pieces called out for this item – In a future update for the product, we’re planning to do work to introduce support for ADFS/AAD in Power BI Report Server, and at the same time do work to enable your app to override user authentication in a secure way.

  5. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

  6. Power BI JavaScript API support for Report Server

    At the moment to embed reports in a intranet webpage we only have the option to put ?rs:Embed=True at the end of the url.

    I have read (on this website) that there are plans to extend this so parameters could also be passed in the url, in a similar way that the current SSRS works.

    Could we also have the Power BI JavaScript API enabled for Power BI Report Server, in a similar way to the Azure service has ?

  8. Provide option to 'Publish to Report Server' instead of 'Save As' on Power BI Desktop for Report Server

    While using PBI Desktop for PBIRS would be a lot better to have an option under the menu Publish rather on Save As in order to save a report to the Power BI Report Server.

  9. Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

    Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
    As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

  10. Give Power BI desktop for Report Server also the Preview options

    Hi,

    At the moment there is a difference between PowerBI Desktop for Report Server and the "normal" PowerBI Desktop. I want to use the ShapeMaps, Visio Visual also. But this is not possible yet.

  11. Show thumbnails of Power BI reports (same as the Mobile Reports)

    Mobile Reports have a sample preview of what the underlying report looks like. Users find this useful when looking for the report they need. Can this be done for the Power BI tiles?

  12. Add ability to import themes in PowerBI Desktop Optimized for Report Server

    With the regular desktop version (not optimized for Report Server), I was allowed to import color Themes. This is useful b/c I could load my companies colors to the desktop and all my visuals take on the colors themes I imported. I'm requesting this feature be added to the Desktop optimized for Report Server.

  13. RTL & Custom Features in Power BI On-Premise (i.e. PBI Report Server) for MENA & LEVANT Regions

    IT Companies in the MENA & LEVANT regions where RTL support is critical in reports and dashboards, are facing issues convincing their customers to adopt Power BI due to lack of critical features.

    Apparently, the current version of Power BI optimized for On-Premise needs to have some critical features added urgently in order to help in adoption of this product in the region.

    We are specifically talking about a region that uses RTL Orientation such as: Hebrew, Arabic, etc., etc...

    The following features are critical:

    1. RTL support for all visuals. Priority off course to Matrix and Table visuals. Without…

  14. Add the ability to categorize reports with virtual categories beside the folder structure

    Currently in the report server you are only allowed to group the reports based on folder structures, which we are using currently to manage also the permission needed to access the reports, but what we want as the we want to keep managing the permission based on folder structure but we want to view the reports based on different categorize and sub-categorize,

    The reason for this is that you want to manage the permission of reports in a different way than organizing the reports.

    we have like 700+ SSRS reports, and it is difficult to tie the permission structure with…

    Great idea, and thanks for your helpful description of the scenario. Others, chime in with your votes and comments here.

  15. Add an interface in Power BI Reports for browsing shared datasets on the Report Server.

    A current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a "Shared Dataset" connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared datasets.

    This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding…

  16. SSRS Style Parameters are vital for optimised Power BI Reports

    The way report parameters work in SSRS means we can have reports that load quickly and are optimised.

    Currently with Power BI we are presented with the solution to use slicers on the report, however that doesn't cut it when we have a lot of data in the back end it just isn't responsive and we have excruciating load times.

    Not having this feature is a deal breaker, and we cannot switch from SSRS to Power BI because of it.

  17. Change parameter in Power BI Report Server

    Reports run locally support parameter changes in Power BI Desktop.

    This should also be allowed in the version uploaded to Power BI Report Server.

    The purpose is to change Parameters used in Variables in the Queries.

  18. Linked PowerBI reports

    Would be great if you can provide functionality to create linked PowerBI reports. Same as with regular paginated reports. Provides better security management and flexibility.

  19. Change user language setting in the report server

    I want to force to model to use English language for large values that represent in the model with shortcuts "M" and "K" (Millions,Thousands), but instead in some computers the browser display I get is in English and other in our local language.
    It would be very helpful if we can change the language setting for each user in the report server ,just like we do in the Power BI service.
