  3. 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.

  4. Copy dataset to another workspace

    I would like to be able to copy a dataset to another workspace.

    The use case is very simple - when making any changes to a dataset, the dataset of course refreshes its entire history (in line with the incremental load policy), and in the service will only show the range of data that was selected when publishing, to end users.

    What I would like to do is make changes to a dataset, load the entire history of the dataset to a development workspace, and then when it has finished, copy this dataset over to production.

    I have not been…

  7. 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…

  8. Return Capacity ID when provisioning Embedded

    When provisioning embedded capacity through Azure Resource Manager, return the Capacity ID.

    This will allow immediate use of the Capacity ID for subsequent Power BI API calls needed for configuration.

    Currently, we are forced to perform a look inside Power BI API which is slow.

    It would be optimal and logical for the provisioning request to return the ID of what it has provisioned.

  9. Access SharePoint pictures where the URL's are secured and not public

    Allow the ability in paginated reports to grab images from SharePoint picture libraries without the public URL being used. Would be ideal to use the user running the report or a service account to run the report on behalf of.

  10. Ability to subscribe to reports in Power BI Embedded

    Please provide an API to allow developers to add the ability for users to subscribe to a report if the report has been embedded into a third party application.

    Currently this can only be done though the Power BI app on PowerBI.com which users won't have access to if Power BI has been embedded.

    This is very useful functionality because users love receiving reports via email. It also means that row-level security (RLS) can be maintained if the report has been scheduled by the user and not by an administrator through PowerBI.com on their behalf.

    This would help us greatly…

  13. PowerBi Service Account Details

    Within my company we have large amount of service account that we utilize on a regular basis. One of the use for the service accounts are to create workspaces. Due to the workspaces limitation per service account we often have to cycle out service accounts. We have an inventory off service accounts to use but have no way of knowing which ones can be used to create workspaces. Due to the automated process we have in cycling the service accounts we cannot take a chance in putting in a service account that does not have available workspaces because it will…

  14. Allow filters in the url for an embedded report

    Right now it is possible, to open an report through an url filterd by Attributes in the link (add ?filter at the end of the url). This is not possible for a link to an embedded url.

    Please add the same filter function from the standard url to the embedded url.

  15. Manage paginated report subscription via API

    It's helpful to be able to choose parameters in email subscription. However, when there are too many combinations, it's time consuming to create each of them manually and it's hard to manage. It would be good if the API can help create and manage subscriptions.

  16. 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.

  18. Return Additional Dataset Meta Data in the Get Dataset REST APIs

    When querying using the Get Datasets REST APIs, such as GetDatasetsAsAdmin, the response includes the following metadata:

    "id": "f807dfc4-b962-4513-88f5-b21771e52dcf",

      "name": "SCNR3_POPL_WITH _50PERCENT_NULLS",
    
    "addRowsAPIEnabled": false,
    &quot;configuredBy&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="mailto:linda.sarace@redcross.org">linda.sarace@redcross.org</a>&quot;,
    &quot;isRefreshable&quot;: true,
    &quot;isEffectiveIdentityRequired&quot;: false,
    &quot;isEffectiveIdentityRolesRequired&quot;: false,
    &quot;isOnPremGatewayRequired&quot;: false,
    &quot;targetStorageMode&quot;: &quot;Abf&quot;

    We would also like the query or new REST APIs to return:
    1. Endorsement (ex: Certified)
    2. Description
    3. Permissions by email address (ex: linda.sarace@redcross.org:App (build), reshare)

  19. Add alias option to M language

    Hello,

    Some functions in power query lib has pretty long names, sapbusinesswarehouseexecutionmode.datastream for instance.

    It would be convenient to be able to make an alias for them as in python or C#.

    sapbusinesswarehouseexecutionmode.datastream as BW.DataStream.

  20. Harmonize M function names

    Hello,
    If i understand correctly, all functions in M using following convention Package.FunctionName.

    It works well WebMethod.Delete, WebMethod.Get, Type.Union, Type.TableRow and so on.

    But there's some of the functions which looks awkward and ruining consistency.

    (Just example, there's additional functions with same naming).

    SapHanaRangeOperator.LessThanOrEquals
    SapHanaDistribution.Statement
    SapHana.Database

    I'm wondering why they named this way?

    Per my understanding all of them should be like:

    SapHana.RangeOperator.LessThanOrEquals
    SapHana.Distribution.Statement
    SapHana.Database

    One dot making naming consistent with rest of functions.
