  1. Power BI API Hierarchical Data

    I've used the Power BI Desktop Hierarchical data feature. It is very powerful. I'd really like to be able to use it in a dataset that I've created via the API. Is this on the horizon?

  2. Power BI API column type "index"

    I use the API to post new rows to my tables. It would be excellent if I could have a column of type "Index" which would auto increment and pass back the index number in the response to the API post.

  3. Multi-Tenant non AD Web Apps

    Power BI embedded: allow RLS based on User ID without AD. That is, let the app pass as a parameter the UID such that data will be filtered for that user only. Good for multi-tenant web based applications.

  5. visual type is not yet supported

    There are dozens of nice PBI visualizations available for download from Visuals Gallery. Unfortunately none that we've tested work thru PBI tile/report embedding in an iframe despite that most those visuals are developed by MSFT. MSFT appears to be aware of this but little is done to date to add support for them. How much value all those visuals add if none can be integrated?

  6. Provide PowerBI Graph as Image on request (similar to JSON/TXT format ask in request headers)

    Please provide an API where client apps can request if they need entire BI object or a image file (PNG, JPG) of a graph (tile), which can be embedded into the website, UWP apps. Today we need to get entire BI graph with all scripts to render in iframe (its too heavy than just a few KB's image)

  8. Embedding Edit mode into web portal

    I am a pro user of power bi and i have embedded PowerBI into a web platform. I would like to get the editable mode of PowerBI service into the platform so that I can edit it within the platform as needed.. so, getting the entire edit mode of PowerBi service would help. Even if it is a paid option, it would be off great value when we provide access to users aswell.

  9. DAX/RLS AND INDEXES

    When using a DAX function to implement RLS it appears that the underlying dynamic SQL that is generated is extremely inefficient. The field I am using in the DAX function i.e. ProjectID = 49 is encapsulated in a COALESCE - this results in the index not being used on this field, therefore the dashboard appears to be very slow.

  14. Ability to set Focus and other Display Properties in Embedded

    Displaying a Power BI Embedded report in an HTML DIV displaying on a desktop PC, reportt appears sized as a "postage stamp". For a user to see content that fills its container (DIV), the Focus button must be clicked. The report URI should contain QueryString functionality that will tell the viewer to display embedded content with full Focus so the user does not have to click any button. This is for usability and user perception of quality.

  16. Access via ClientSecret

    The PowerBI REST API should be accessible via the ClientSecret of an App in AzureAD, so that there is no need to sign in every time you start an App that uses the API.

  17. Publish Tiles to AX Enterprise Portal

    We have decided to start using Enterprise Portal for AX. (Role Center). However many reports will be done using Power BI, and it is difficult to get users to go to two separate places for their reports. Publishing to the AX portal would be very helpful

  18. Create Dynamic Report From Client App

    Here is my problem: User logs into our application with its app credentials, creates a custom query that runs and returns data. the returned data is then used to refresh the power BI report embedded into our app.
    So each user should be able to programmatically create its report from our app and view only the report with its data. a user should not see other users report.
    I could not find a way of doing it right now, and could someday make it possible.

  19. Get current Filter in a Report as Javascript Event

    If a user changes a Filter setting (e.g. by clicking on the visual) a report, added with an Iframe, should send callback in javascript. Similiar to window.addEventListener('message', onReceiveMessage, false); and the event reportPageLoaded

  20. REST endpoint to generate Report access token for reports hosted in PowerBI service

    I am trying to integrate the Power BI reports from Power BI service to my existing app which is not registered to AAD. I have one account that interacts with the Power BI service and I can pull the report metadata using the rest end point GET https://api.powerbi.com/beta/myorg/reports . However, the end user that sees the report using iFrame requires an access token. And, they don’t have AAD account. Is there a REST endpoint that allows to create a token for a specific report so that the EmbedUrl and the accessToken is returned to the UI for rendering?

    I see…
