  1. Rest API to create report from web application

    This would allow developers to generate/create reports based on the users' input and show it immediately after that. It will be useful to show users what is the result of their predefined values.

  4. Limit History in Stream Data Sets

    It would be awesome if there is a possibility to limit the history of stream data sets. It would be also great if you can archive all data above the Limit in a SQL Database or something simular as an option. BTW you should be able to set alerts to the current streamed value to track critical values.

  5. URL Paramerters used in Direct Query Datasources

    I need to push parameters from a URL in a Dataset that used DirectQuery to a Azure DB to filter the data in the source system.

    Szenario: A Product ID from a operational system can filter a Power BI Dashboard to display the performance of a product.

    With this feature we can use Power BI Dashboards in a operational reporting and a good performance on the datasource.

  8. 这个校验请求连接地址合法性的过程是什么样的?

    使用Rest API嵌入的最后一步操作embed the report in your web page
    var iframe = document.getElementById('ifrTile');
    iframe.src = 'https://embedded.powerbi.com/appTokenReportEmbed?reportId=2027efc6-a308-4632-a775-b9a9186f087c';
    iframe.onload = function() {
    var msgJson = {
    action: "loadReport",
    accessToken: "<?=$apptoken?>",
    height: 500,
    width: 722
    };
    var msgTxt = JSON.stringify(msgJson);
    iframe.contentWindow.postMessage(msgTxt, "*");
    这个地方为什么是iframe先加载url地址,加载完成之后再往窗口发送msgTxt.
    这个校验请求连接地址合法性的过程是什么样的?

  9. Need an easy way to pull back all rows from an API/WebService without code.

    Need an easy way to pull back all rows from an API/WebService. A set up that will pause and parse until it gets all rows of data, ex. JSON, currently working on pulling data from CA Agile Central and limited to 2k rows, but need to get to over 10-20k rows.

  10. "Manage Embed Codes" admin disable other users embed codes

    Administrators need to be able to see and disable individual embed codes, not just their own embed codes. If someone else shares data that shouldn't be shared then goes on vacation, etc., IT needs to be able to disable that embed code.

  11. Cannot use the old table name

    After I delete an table on the right hand-side of the report, it should be able to create another with the old name. Currently, I cannot.

  12. Connecting to Power BI data models from R

    The reports I usually do in my company are generated trough Rmarkdown documents. It would be nice to be able to connect to a PowerBI dataset or Report to include some of the analysis performed in PowerBI to complement the other analysis made in the report. In this way you could share the PowerBI dashboard or report to the stakeholders if they want to slice and dice what was reported to them.

  14. Is there a way to apply queries on Power BI using REST API?

    Hi,

    I am using REST APIs for creating report and embed into iframe of my web page. But it seems this approach has very limited functionality as per my experience.

    I would like to use following functionality:

    - Apply filters by querying on data on the fly
    - I want to use scheduled refresh using Power BI while connecting to the MySQL database.

    Please let me know your suggestions, if I am missing something here.

  16. power BI should support http2 especially for Direct Query.

    PowerBI should support HTTP2. When doing direct query there can be a lot of requests and because they are all going to the same domain they get queued up. With HTTP2 things would load fase

  19. See all reports in Azure

    Could be nice if we could see reports we've uploaded to Azure IN Azure and upload them directly through this.
    Also an update function will be neccessary, it would be a mess to update all Reports daily manually.
    Please work on this useful features.
