  2. Add filter options to the 'Export File' API

    The 'Export to file' API endpoint is a great addition to the API, however, I was surprised to see that there is no way of passing in filter/slicer options.

    Bookmarks can be applied, and are suggested as a workaround - but this isn't suitable for our use case.

    We want to be able to generate PDF for sending out to multiple users - but need to set filters programatically - bookmarks wont let us do this.

    Idea: Add Filter Options to the API Request Body - With capabilities similar to the JavaScript embedding API => (Filter Types, Operators, Values, and…

  4. REST API - Get Dataset/Report Users

    Returns a list of users that have access to the specified dataset/report. It would be very useful for security audit or in case when access request approval is handled by custom process.

  5. Power BI Deployment Pipeline API or Azure DevOps Release Tasks

    My team is watching a preview of the Power BI Deployment Pipeline right now. We currently use Azure DevOps Pipelines to perform CI/CD for azure and on-prem sites/services. Would love to use the same Azure DevOps release pipeline (and associated approval gates) to deploy Power BI into DEV,QA,PROD environments. A set of API's and/or Release Tasks would be great!

  6. Manage report permissions (Share report etc.) through PowerBI API

    Currently, we do not have the possibility to share reports after programatically deploying them to a workspace. It would be great if we can assign the people the report is meant to be shared with AD Groups while publishing. This would complete the automated pipeline process.

    Roles on the workspaces arent quite sufficient as all reports are visible to all viewers thereby making it cumbersome to share individual reports from one workspace to different audience group.

    A similar request on App level:

  7. Embed dashboards in teams

    Option to add and embed dashboards through the Power BI page-extension in Teams (currently only allows reports)

    Idea originated from the following issue:

  8. GetReportsInGrouAsAdmin Should include report state, i.e. deleted

    When using this API call, it returns all reports, which is fine and useful. However, it doe snot indicate the state of the report, i.e. active, deleted, etc.

    Where this causes some challenge is when reporting on the data that is returned, we are unable to report on the various states of a report and are forced to simply show them all even if they have been deleted subsequently.

  9. Embed a Power BI App (with new app navigation)

    The ability to embed a Power BI app is required. This is not a Workspace app, but the separate apps on the side which consolidates different reports and dashboards with the new app navigation.

    It currently is possible to embed reports and dashboards, but it is not possible for a published app. We would like to utilise the new app navigation in our organisation's web portal after embedding the entire app.

  13. Extract comments from API

    With the newly released functionality of commenting for reports, it would be great to be able to retrieve these using the API in order to create summaries or overviews of the comments in a separate report.

  15. Presentation Mode in Embedded Mode

    Please, The Presentation Mode in Power BI Web is very important.
    We are able to view the Dashboards and Reports into TV through Raspberry PI Browser for example.

  17. Ability to subscribe to reports in Power BI Embedded

    Please provide an API to allow developers to add the ability for users to subscribe to a report if the report has been embedded into a third party application.

    Currently this can only be done though the Power BI app on PowerBI.com which users won't have access to if Power BI has been embedded.

    This is very useful functionality because users love receiving reports via email. It also means that row-level security (RLS) can be maintained if the report has been scheduled by the user and not by an administrator through PowerBI.com on their behalf.

    This would help us greatly…

  18. Expose Analysis Services perspective in Power BI REST API

    Currently, the Datasets - Update Datasources In Group functionality in the API doesn't give us access to change a perspective in a AS/SSAS connection, so it cannot be updated programatically. Please expose the perspective via the REST API or preferably PowerShell so we can get and set it. Also, it seems as if the perspective might be also embedded in the report. And Analyse In Excel connection information may be stored elsewhere. I am hoping that having access to set the perspective would update the perspective in every location necessary, if this is stored in multiple places.

  19. Add HDInsights Interactive Query as SSO datasource to connect with Paginated Report

    Add HDInsights Interactive Query as SSO datasource to connect with Paginated Report

    It will be fine if you implement the possibility to download paginated report via Power BI REST API using Hive cluster as a data source.

  20. Provide method of searching/filtering capacity list

    Currently, the capacities API returns an entire list of all capacities. This is slow and heavy as the number of capacities increase. This leads to slower response times, increased traffic and processing, and reduced performance of Power BI API services.

    This request is to provide a method by which server side filtering can be performed to return a partial list of capacities.

    Ideas for what value could be filtered are:
    - id
    - displayName
    - sku
    - state
    - region
    - capacityUserAccessRight
