  1. 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…

  2. browser add on which can point from OLTP system's UI on browser to it's impacted PBI reports

    Whenever a user is working on a screen or doing transaction in an ERP like system which is source to Power BI reports, the user can be given a snapshot pop up of impact/relation of that transaction/ field in ERP to the reports he/she has access to using key terms mapping.

  3. .Net Viewer control

    Ability to embed dashboard into wpf application by loading pbix file off network share. Azure and Cloud are sometimes not possible to smaller companies or because of privacy policies. Understand incorporating it into Azure allows a continual flow of revenue, however shuts out alot of companies from using the product. Maybe link it to a reasonably priced viewer only license, so it is still a source on revenue.

  5. Sorting Power BI workspace by alphabetical order when adding a report to Team

    Like the title says, it would be helpful if the workspace could be sorted in alphabetical order instead of the order in which they were added. It would be easier to find them.

  6. Twilio API Limit

    The Twilio API seems to limit the SMS history to 50 messages.

    Instead of this constraint being hardcoded, the user should be allowed to set the desired limit.

  9. 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.

  10. Hey @msexcel @MSPowerBI ... do you think you'll ever build a JSON to CSV parser so that I can pull data out of APIs cleanly? That'd be nice.

    Hey @msexcel @MSPowerBI ... do you think you'll ever build a JSON to CSV parser so that I can pull data out of APIs cleanly? That'd be nice. Currently, I use @konklone awesome tool... but it's silly to manually parse a common data format. https://konklone.io/json/

  11. 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.

  14. Can't pass multiple values using RLS for direct query (IN Clause)

    Below is the scenario explained in our case,
    • We are using Direct Query method for our PBI report. It is a multi-tenant report.
    • This report is embedded in our application, where we have a drop-down to select organization.
    • So when user selects organization its ID is passed to PBI in form of RLS. Where in PBI report we have created a Role on table field as mentioned below,
    o [account-ID] = VALUE ( USERNAME () )
    o Which filters and show only data for that particular Organization.
    • Now we have a requirement, where we need to…

  16. Trigger Alert when real time data meets a condition via Stream Analytics

    Triggering a data alert on a real time card tile should be possible via Stream Analytics. I don't want to store any data (cache is fine), but I would like to trigger an alert when Temperature or Humidity meets/exceeds a condition.

  18. Fix the Range attribute in the http request header.

    Forum Reference: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Integrations-with-Files-and/HTTP-Request-Header-quot-Range-quot/m-p/693665#M23312

    My API integration only returns 25 records by default. I'd like to return 1000. I'm attempting to pass the Range parameter through the HTTP Request and cannot figure out the syntax.

    [Headers=[Authorization="Basic MDM0M0Mjhj", Range="Range:items=0-1023"]]

    I recieve this error: "Expression.Error: The 'Range' header must be modified using the appropriate property or method. Parameter name: name Details: Range:items=0-1023"

    The API integration is expecting this:

    Range:items=0-1023

    When I pass this in using the Advanced Editor as follows, I also recieve an "Invailid identifier" error.

    [Headers=[Authorization="Basic MDM0MjU2ZjM0Mjhj", Range:items=0-1023]]

  19. Add Support for API Endpoints Secured with Azure Active Directory

    It's currently impossible (without poor ux powershell hackery) to use the 'Authenticate with Organizational Account' option with a web api secured with Azure Active Directory. This is really frustrating because if you have a nice API layer in Azure API Management, or even just an Azure Function, you can't give access to your analysts without switching to key-based authentication.
