  1. Ability to pass multiple values as a filter parameter in query string

    As of now only one parameter value can be passed in a filter using the syntax:
    <PowerBI report URL>?filter=<Table Name 1>/<Column Name 1> eq 'Value 1' and <Table Name 2>/<Column Name 2> eq 'Value 2'

    But we cannot pass more than one value for say <Column Name 1>

    • 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.

        • add group user api - enable adding non-admin users

          It would be nice to be able to add power bi users to workspaces(groups) in readonly mode. We are only limited to add admin users via api. It is really important to have this feature in order to automate deployments.

            • Retrieve Power BI App information using PowerShell

              Currently I am working on some PS scripts to be able to manage the enterprise implementation of Power BI. One of the things I am not able to find is retrieving App-information using PowerShell. For example: I would like to create a list of Apps (based on workspaces) that has been distributed within the tenant and the users who can access the Apps. Other information, like last updates, included datasets and reports, etc, would be grate as well.

                • Javascript API to get selected data

                  It would be nice if there was a Javascript API to get the selected data in a visual (to know wich bar / lines / rows are selected in a visual).

                  Currently we have a dataSelected event that's available, but the event doesn't tell us if we have multiple data that are selected (if the user selected the data with the Ctrl key pressed) and we don't really know when the data is unselected.

                  Thanks!

                  • Power BI Web API Dataset refresh

                    Allow Power BI Web datasets that use APIs and API keys to be able to be refreshed properly. Currently if you run an API to get a dataset then you will run into an issue where tying to update the credentials in "Data source credentials" will not work properly.

                    • Power BI wrapper for Angular 5+

                      There used to be a wrapper for embedding Power BI inside Angular applications for AngularJS (Angular 1) but that one is depreciated now. It would be good to have a wrapper for Angular 5+ now

                      • Programmatic way ( via REST API) to get the pure data of a dataset in POWER BI Service.

                        Intention is to receive the data insides of the report so that I can do an automated sanity of report data. Report PBIX file export is not of use to me as my utility code cannot read data from it
                        As of now there is no way to create automated testing to verify the health of reports that they are running fine with correct data .
                        Also , we can have any REST api for export to .csv/. xml , this might also work for automation test building.

                            • Disable DRILLTHROUGH on filter pane for embedded

                              With the newest release, the DRILLTHROUGH screen is enabled on the filter pane regardless of the end user's permissions. There needs to be a way to disable just this portion (while keeping the filter pane).

                              • Increase maximum roles EffectiveIdentity for RLS

                                Currently when generating a token for embedding with an EffectiveIdentity, you are allowed to pass 50 roles. We would like to see this increased.

                                This will allow more flexibility when defining your own low level RLS in a data cube.

                                • Embed Power BI Objects into Excel, Word & PowerPoint

                                  Add the ability to embed Power BI Objects i.e. reports, dashboards into Excel, Word & PowerPoint. These objects can then be manually or automatically updated. This would allow users to create board reports etc with real-time tables/charts.

                                    It would be great if customers that do not currently have a Power BI licence could create custom alerts.

                                    • Make Text.PositionOfAny support searching for strings of more than 1 character

                                      It looks like there's a bug or undocumented restrictions on Text.PositionOfAny. The documentation seems to suggest that you can search for arbitrary strings within text but if you use strings of length greater than 1 it returns an error.

                                      For example:

                                      = Text.PositionOf("abcd", {"a","b","c","d"}, Occurrence.First)

                                      returns 0 as you'd expect, but

                                      = Text.PositionOf("abcd", {"ab","b","c","d"}, Occurrence.First)

                                      fails with an error when used in a custom column from Excel 2016 / Power Query.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Disable 'Save' feature when an embedded report is opened in 'Edit' mode

                                          I have reports that I am embedding in a webapp that I would like to allow users to be able to edit. However, I want to hide the 'Save' feature and only allow the 'Save As' option so that when a user saves an edit, it doesn't overwrite the same report other users can already see, but rather creates a new copy with the edits which that user could view.
