  1. Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API

    The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!

  2. Embedding Q&A experience for multiple datasets

    Power BI Embedded service supports embedding Q&A for a single dataset in the Power BI workspace at a given point of time. However, it does not support embedding Q&A on multiple datasets simultaneously. Would be really helpful if this feature is enabled/developed.

  3. Microsoft Word POWER BI Add-on

    Other than the Devscope Power BI addon which does not work the way I expected, Can Microsoft provide a POWER BI Add-on which allows us to insert or copy a particular visual into the word document? I'd like to copy paste a particular chart/graph from power BI web/desktop like we can copy graphs from Excel into Word. I tried to export the Power BI report into a powerpoint file but since we have over 15 pages in this PBI Report this was not allowed.

    Surely Microsoft can provide this integration between their own products?

    I have been using Snagit to…

  4. Use REST API to export report to PowerPoint

    Hi,
    Now that PowerBI Team has made possible to export reports to PowerPoint (GREAT JOB!), it would be awesome to be able to call this function through REST API to an embedded frame. Thanks!

  5. power bi embedded printing

    For Power BI Embedded, i would like to see a facility to print a dashboard page (not the whole report) to PDF.

    My user group regularly asks about this. Using Snipping Tool is not really good enough.

    My dashboard has 20 pages so printing the whole report to PDF would not work.

  6. Refresh API

    There are quite a few features that would be nice to be consolidated into a refresh API update. Top three:

    1. Configure refresh schedule from API
    2. Retrieve refresh schedule from API
    3. Turn on/off refresh schedule from API

    Retrieving the refresh schedule along with the refresh history will allow for schedule optimization in a premium environment.

  7. Export Power BI report template using PowerShell script

    Export Power BI report as PBIT using PowerShell or C# to automate the process. Power BI is currently supporting manual process to export PBIT files. However, it is tedious process when you have 100s of reports scattered on multiple workspaces.

  8. Rest API Apps list and specific App contents (reports, dashboards, users)

    I've been using the Power BI REST API to get the list of reports/datasets/dashboards/tiles/members/etc.), but don't see any option to get the list of Apps and the contents of a specific App (reports, dashboards, app members).

    Please add this to the REST API!

    We really need the Apps list and app contents (reports list, etc) and security information (members that have access to a specific App).

    Thanks!

  10. Hotjar API

    We use Hotjar surveys to measure our CES score on 'thankyou' pages. At the moment we have to refresh all the hotjar datadumps by hand to refresh data. Therefore it would be great to have a automated data import from Hotjar in Power BI, this would save a lot of time.

  11. Update parameter into .pbix file

    Update Parameter Function only effect on Cloud but does not actually change the value into the .pbix file.
    We need this function to directly modified the parameter inside .pbix file so that other editor could get updated parameter via download from Cloud.

  12. 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.

  13. Groups API - create readonly groups

    We would like to be able to create groups via API in readonly mode. It is not possible to specify isReadOnly field while creating a group. IsReadOnly field is being returned on Get groups but we have no way to specify it when creating a new group. It is crucial to be able to create groups in readonly mode as we are trying to automate deployments.

  14. Enable SSH Jumps

    To access a server via an SSH jump would be very handy. This is a requirement of many of my clients. The direct connection to a database is not always requiret due to security issues.

  15. New filter pane experience

    Currently we have the new filter pane working in desktop and powerbi.com as desired; but it is not visible in our embedded environment when accessed that way. Should the new filter experience work in the embedded environment? If so, what are the steps to enable? If not, will this be a feature in the future?

  16. Add new retention policy to power bi push datasets

    Currently, Power BI datasets only support two retention policies:

    -FIFO which allows 200 k rows and automatically removes old rows to accommodate for new ones when the limit is reached
    -None which allows upto 5 million records but does not automatically remove old rows

    A third option should be available which allows 5 million records and purges older records according to the retention policy. Either that or the FIFO policy should be updated to allow for a larger row limit instead of 200k.

  17. Custom Python Library in Power BI

    It would be great to have the ability to use our own custom python library inside PowerBI web. This helps improve code readability and shorten script code console.

    At the moment we can install our own library and can display in Power BI Desktop, but published this visual will give an error.

    It's great to have the ability to install our library from git to PowerBi web.

  18. Prevent user (service-side) from entering Edit-mode in Embedded App Owns Data scenario

    Currently there is no option in Power BI Embedded API´s or Power BI Service settings to disable a report from being loaded into ‘Edit’-mode by using for instance a Javascript debugger in a web browser, in an app-owns-data Power BI embedded solution. Setting the ViewMode property in Javascript can easily be overridden in any client-side debugger tool. Once an end-user of a website has entered the report in edit mode, the imported data model (i.e. table structure) and all it´s underlying actual data, down to a row-level, is fully exposed to the end-user to freely browse.

    What would appear to…

  20. Add fullscreen button for embed in SharePoint Online

    Add a fullscreen button to Power BI reports embedded in Sharepoint Online. This is already supported for reports embedded in SharePoint with the "publish to web" feature, but not for reports using secure embed. Right now this is the final feature lacking for us in order to use SharePoint as a complete portal for all our Power BI reports.
