  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. "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…

  3. 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.

  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. 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…

  6. 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.

  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. 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.

  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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Embed the real time reports of power Bi to Power Point

    Currently, Power Bi allows you to embed reports into web. But it would be really useful if Power BI embed gives you the option to display real time reports (Live reports) from web to power point.

  13. Expose sharing information for Reports and Dashboards in PowerShell and REST API

    We would like to gather data on who has access to our reports and dashboards, especially when they are shared externally. In Powershell, the Workspace object has information on Admins and Members. But Report and Dashboard objects do not have any information on who it is shared with.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. MSI authentication method for dataset refresh triggering via POST

    To fully integrate our Data Factory pipelines and our Power BI reports we should be able to trigger a dataset update from a Data Factory Pipeline. Thus, it would be nice to have a simpler authentication method e.g., via MSI like we do to start an Azure SSIS integration Runtime. If you do it then please provide a proper example with some print screens etc. Thanks.
