How can we improve Power BI?

Allow setting connectionstring for imported mode via API

Curently you can set the connection string via 'SetAllDatasetConnectionsInGroup' but only for direct query datasets. Unless this works for imported mode, I don't see how we can make SAAS offerings using imported mode.

    I'd like to second this request. I need to stripe out 1 report across 100+ different workspaces which should each read from their own unique Azure Data Lake Store.

    If I can't programmatically point the dataset to other data sources, I'd need to manually edit each dataset in each workspace in power BI. That may be technically possible for this report, but I'm also trailblazing for future reports to be added. Extending this process across multiple reports is completely untenable.
