  1. Get Reports by Dataset API

    the API would return the report and workspace IDs for all reports that use an input dataset ID. All reports would be returned across your power bi tenant (even if you do not own or have access) as long as the report is connected to a dataset you own.

    Shared datasets are great but it is a upgrade challenge when you have no idea who is actually using the dataset. If someone sources data from your dataset this should prompt the users with a notification that details such as the report name and usage data will be accessible by the…

  2. Export all the users/groups to whom dashboards/reports have been shared

    For administration purposes, it would be great to be able to export via API the complete list of users to whom any dashboard/report has been shared (only for power bi service admins). Currently it's not available the list of who have you shared a report with (neither individually nor full list).

  3. Power Bi personal Bookmarks Not supported With Power Bi Embedded

    As for now personal bookmarks are not supported in Power Bi Embedded  we got this answer  from PBI Support 3-4 days ago.

    We can see an example for them in the power Bi JS Playground page and it is very confusing as it took us more then a month to discover that Personal Bookmarks are not supported with Power Bi Embedded.

    We think this is one of the most basic features, it exist in the Power Bi Service but not with Power Bi Embed and actually preventing us from using Power Bi embed at the monument as our client users can not work without…

  4. Add scope to Export-PowerBIReport cmdlet

    Please add the scope parameter to more PowerShell cmdlets for Power BI. For example, the Export-PowerBIReport does not have the scope parameter while the Get-PowerBIReport does.

    My use-case is as an tenant admin I need to backup workspace content before deleting the workspaces. Workspace owners aren't always technical and trust their IT staff to do this sort of work for them. This would allow admins to run a periodic backup of report definitions across the tenant.

  5. Custom Dynamic Content Alerts

    Currently PowerBI alerts send alert title, alert threshold, is alert triggered, title URL, and title value to Power Automate. It would be nice if other data on the dashboard could be sent via the alert to Power Automate. Say you're monitoring whether servers are online and you have a PowerBI dashboard with a tile listing the number of servers currently down, and a table of the IDs, location, etc. of the servers that are down. An alert on the number of servers currently down tile could collect the list of down server's and send it to power automate to generate…

  7. Capacity SKUs and Pro Licensing

    PowerBI Embedded licensing requires purchase of both capacity SKUs and “pro” user license.

    Purchasing capacity SKUs should include a limited number of Power BI pro licenses, related to the size of the SKU capacity being purchased.

  8. Documentation - Obtain embed tokens for JS

    When trying to embed reports for customers in a Java Web App, we decided to use the REST API to acquire the embed token. We have to first acquire Active Directory access token for the PowerBI (Documntation is not clear on this). If I go to the PowerBI REST API Overview link (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn877544.aspx) the first API is not working.

    We managed to do this with the REST calls, but then, when trying to acquire the embed token for a report (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt784614.aspx), the documentation is not clear on how to acquire dataset id, what roles and username…

  9. Connect PowerBi Comments into TEAMS Posts

    AIming to have singe point of overview for PowerBi feedback made via PowerBi Comments.

    Idea is to
    a) integrate comments into TEAMS posts and allow commenting from there
    b) enable comments as a dataset to allow further analysis, eg via AI
    c) aggregation of comments made from various reports into a single dashboard allowing to comment/feedback from there

  11. report server custom security dataset model

    Hi Dev team. We have a very custom security model that we have made easy on our home grown solutions but it's hard to implement on top of row level security. My proposal is to allow use of parameters that can be used to filter the data with no tolerance. We build a lot of tools to take our geographies and customers in mind and can pull those datasets in to limit them and also just have a middleware api call from a parameterized selection to check if that username has access to use those parameters for a very simple…

  12. Return the datasource name and connection string with the response from the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api. when the source method is Import

    When calling the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api, the datasource name and connection string are blank when the data was sourced using the Import method.

    Per the MSFT senior escalation team and several tests in a MSFT environment "we confirmed that the name and connection string will only come in the response if Direct Query is being used"

  13. Make Bilk call available to the GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api

    All of the REST APIs we call allow us to make the call in bulk verses making a separate call for each artifact ID, i.e., we can call pass all group id's in one API call and get all the datasets in all groups.

    The GetDataSourcesAsAdmin Api does not support this bulk call and forces us to make a call for each dataset to get data sources.

    This was originally opened a an issue and MSFT support escalated to the Embedded SMEs who indicated that this is not available.

  14. Annoying infotip cannot be cancelled/disabled (header overlap)

    When Power App is integrated into the Power BI report, an annyoing infotip "Share this app from PowerApps so others can view it in Power BI" appears constantly in the PowerApps visual. This prevents the Power App from being controlled from the Power BI report. The infotip cannot be cancelled by a cross button as the cross button itself gets obstructed by the Power BI header controls (filter/slicers, focus mode, more options). Disabling the header in Power BI formatting options has NO effect on either the infotip or the header. Pls allow disabling the infotip permanently in formatting options or…

  15. Rest API Add Users to Group

    Currently the API is designed to support adding Single User at a time to a group. It would be great to support an array of users to be added.

  19. Share Dashboard

    This would be great to allow us to manage dashboards access permissions through the REST API.

    I think to the "Share"->"Access" settings of dashboard.
