  1. 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…

  2. Allow User Filters to be saved in Power BI Embedded

    When using Power BI Embedded, Users always have to 'suffer' the default filters that the designer used, whereas there is a very useful function 'save user filters' for Power BI Pro & Premium.

    I am aware this can be custom coded by passing filters into the PBI API, however this is not the same as being able to pass a 'User ID' and letting Power BI service save the actual last filters used by the user.

  3. Allow Export data in embedded to inherit tenant rules in App Owns Data scenario

    We have recently noticed that the export data settings in the power bi tenant do not get inherited by embedded reports in an App Owns Data Scenario.

    We can add the master/service principal to the export data allowed list but then everyone using the report will be allowed to export data.

    You would be able to disable the button as a workaround by doing a manual check of the user and disabling it in the embed config of the javascript, but people that know what they are doing can manipulate javascript to re-enable the button.

    I initially assumed that the…

  4. Add new retention policy to power bi push datasets

    Currently, Power BI datasets only support two retention policies:

    -FIFO which allows 200 k rows and automatically removes old rows to accommodate for new ones when the limit is reached
    -None which allows upto 5 million records but does not automatically remove old rows

    A third option should be available which allows 5 million records and purges older records according to the retention policy. Either that or the FIFO policy should be updated to allow for a larger row limit instead of 200k.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow developers to add Client Logo and some disclaimer as part of header and footer while printing report

    This would be a great addon for Powerbi embedded where,the api allows the user to add header(Customer Logo or some text) then the report where width and height can be adjustable and at the bottom most part allow some footer content like disclaimer etc.

  7. Import custom visuals from marketplace in power bi embedded

    It would be really great if you could access the marketplace for custom visuals from the embedded version as well as the power bi service and desktop.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. .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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    Reports created by the Odata and published into Power BI web. From that, we can share the reports to multiple D365 users at single shot.

  15. 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.

  16. 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/
