  1. Update Zendesk Beta Plugin to support new Zendesk API changes

    Hi,

    I cannot get data from Zendesk using the Power BI Zendesk Beta plugin anymore, because Zendesk has changed their API, and Power BI will have to make some adjustments for it to work. It's mentioned here: https://develop.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022563994--BREAKING-New-Search-API-Result-Limits?fl...

    If this isn't updated, we will continue to receive this error when refreshing "OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] Web.Contents failed to get contents from 'https://jssi.zendesk.com/api/v2/search.json?page=11&query=type%3Aticket' (422): Unprocessable Entity"


    1. Will Microsoft Power BI be creating an update to the Zendesk beta plugin to address this in the near future?


    2. Is there a work around we can use in the…

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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:

  5. 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.

  7. Row level security (RLS) - automate maintenance

    Given that there is a significant focus on Enterprise features in Power BI, I am surprised that there is not automated solution for row level security (RLS). For datasets that don't use underlying database solution, it is a very manual activity to mange RLS.

    It would be good to have a solution to automate the activities for Row Level security


    • Adding users (including bulk upload)

    • Removing users (including bulk upload

    • Extracting the list of existing users along with the role

    I think the options could be:


    • Rest API

    • Sql Server Management Studio

    • CSV download for each dataset

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Need a REST API to get Dataflow refresh history

    Datasets have a GET /refreshes API to retrieve the refresh history. We need one similar for Dataflows. There is a POST https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupId}/dataflows/{dataflowId}/refreshes API to start a refresh but there's no API to monitor the success/failure of that refresh currently. Please add a GET https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/groups/{groupId}/dataflows/{dataflowId}/refreshes

  12. 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

  13. Power Bi personal Bookmarks Not supported With Power Bi Embedded

    As for now personal bookmarks are not supported in Power Bi Embedded  we got this answer  from PBI Support 3-4 days ago.

    We can see an example for them in the power Bi JS Playground page and it is very confusing as it took us more then a month to discover that Personal Bookmarks are not supported with Power Bi Embedded.

    We think this is one of the most basic features, it exist in the Power Bi Service but not with Power Bi Embed and actually preventing us from using Power Bi embed at the monument as our client users can not work without…

  14. Return the datasource name and connection string with the response from the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api. when the source method is Import

    When calling the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api, the datasource name and connection string are blank when the data was sourced using the Import method.

    Per the MSFT senior escalation team and several tests in a MSFT environment "we confirmed that the name and connection string will only come in the response if Direct Query is being used"

  15. Make Bilk call available to the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api

    All of the REST APIs we call allow us to make the call in bulk verses making a separate call for each artifact ID, i.e., we can call pass all group id's in one API call and get all the datasets in all groups.

    The GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api does not support this bulk call and forces us to make a call for each dataset to get data sources.

    This was originally opened a an issue and MSFT support escalated to the Embedded SMEs who indicated that this is not available.

  17. Power BI REST API Get Refresh History as Admin

    Create a REST API call to retrive the full list of Refresh Hitory records as Admin.
    With the current call structure we need to iterate for every single dataset

  18. Power BI Embeded A1 slower then free embedded tokens

    Using the dedicated azure Power BI Embedded A1 feature is at least 4x slower than the trial (free tokens) feature.

    NOTE *: With only one user generating the report.

    NOTE **: This is happening using resource allocation in South America (Brazil)

    Something that makes no sense, the free and shared feature, being faster than paid and dedicated. Even more starting at $ 735 a month.

  19. Premium Capacity Metrics API

    Please make the Premium Capacity Metrics available via the API. We need to be able to have more than 7 days available. This was mentioned by Josh Caplan in the below video from 2017 and doesn't appear to have ever happened.

  20. "Import" REST Api call doesn’t work when Importing PBI report consuming existing dataset and with cross tenant

    "Import" REST Api call doesn’t work when Importing PBI report consuming existing dataset and importing with cross tenant account. I have already raised a MS Support ticket (119012526003971) but got response that its not possible at present and need to raise a new idea.
    Scenario:
    • Create Report in Dev Env.
    o Create PBI report (e.g. mypbireport1.pbix) using Powerbi desktop and AAD account (e.g. abcdev@test.com), which is connecting to external Datasource and then publish to a workspace e.g. devws. It creates dataset in Powerbi service with name as mypbireport1. (we can use either PBI desktop or Powershell REST API…
