  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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

          • 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).

                • Create pbit template file from online via API

                  Ability to export report as template (pbit) file via API.

                  This would enable automated report archiving and automated integration for source control.

                  • Power BI Embedded Responsiveness

                    It is cool that Power BI Embedded supports now the phone layout. Nevertheless it would be even better more responsiveness would be supported, i.e. that the visuals are adjusted automatically dependent on the used device.

                    • Ability to send any tile's content (table tile is top priority) via email using Flow

                      currently we can take value and title only from gauge, KPI or card.

                      Top priority would be content of the table tile.

                            • Add PowerBI Tiles and RLS to Dynamics Dashboards

                              Currently, PowerBI tiles can only be added to PERSONAL Dynamics dashboards. They should also be able to be added to ORGANIZATIONAL dashboards (via Customize the System).
                              One hypothetical way around this is to iFrame your PBI dashboard, but this functionality does not support RLS.
                              Why can we add PBI tiles to one type of Dynamics dashboard, but not another?

                                    • Share dashboard/reports to Entire Organization

                                      Allow sharing a dashboard/report to the Entire Organization (just like when u publish an app) so that I dont have to create DL/Security groups that encompass "everyone" (or all authenticated users) manually which is error prone.

                                      • Integrate devscope add-ins functinality of Power BI Tiles - Power BI in Excel &PowerPoint

                                        PowerBI export function is very weak and can't refresh and can't export filtered data and limited to 15 pages.

                                        Devscope has a full feature add-ins for supporting integration of PowerBI and power point. Devscope support was not great so if MSFT integrated similar functionality in MS powerBI it will be great.

                                        • Pass parameter values to embedded report

                                          Allow the host application to pass in a value to be applied to report parameter(s) prior to running and displaying a report. This would allow, say, a customer ID field to be assigned to a parameter ensuring only data relevant to that customer is retrieved.

                                          Whilst this could be achieved via a URL filter, this is not considered a sufficiently secure option in our use case.
