  1. 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.

  2. Hotjar API

    We use Hotjar surveys to measure our CES score on 'thankyou' pages. At the moment we have to refresh all the hotjar datadumps by hand to refresh data. Therefore it would be great to have a automated data import from Hotjar in Power BI, this would save a lot of time.

  3. New filter pane experience

    Currently we have the new filter pane working in desktop and powerbi.com as desired; but it is not visible in our embedded environment when accessed that way. Should the new filter experience work in the embedded environment? If so, what are the steps to enable? If not, will this be a feature in the future?

  6. PowerBI API data in sync with UI

    Example: The data from following API
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/datasets/getrefreshhistoryingroup

    doesnt match the details provided in the UI, when failures happen..

    please try to change your programming model to make sure the U I is also using same set of APIs as released to developers publicly... this will make sure we have all the data needed programatically.. right now there is no sync betweeen public release and UI data completeness.

  7. MSI authentication method for dataset refresh triggering via POST

    To fully integrate our Data Factory pipelines and our Power BI reports we should be able to trigger a dataset update from a Data Factory Pipeline. Thus, it would be nice to have a simpler authentication method e.g., via MSI like we do to start an Azure SSIS integration Runtime. If you do it then please provide a proper example with some print screens etc. Thanks.

  9. Power BI Embedded support for Xamarin or Xamarin.Forms

    Trying to embed a report to WebViews and HybridWebView for Xamarin.Forms is a pain and are close to impossible to achieve. Please develop a better way to easily embed report content into native mobile apps.

  12. Finish implementing filters in embedded, e.g. topN

    When embedding a visual, we can change its filters with setFilters, as described in the docs:

    https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-JavaScript/wiki/Filters

    But for several kinds of filter this does not work, and this limitation is also noted on that page, e.g. "[ITopNFilter below is currently not supported]"

    The problem is, when we call setFilter it replaces the existing filters. Some filters are absolutely necessary for the report's functionality. They must not be removed. So to set an additional filter of a supported type (e.g. a simple date range) we must call getFilter to retrieve existing filters, then append our extra filter, then call setFilter.

  14. Email Notification for Many Users, for Failed Dataset Refresh via REST API

    If we trigger a dataset refresh using the Power BI REST API, and that refresh fails, we need a way to send the email notification to many users.

  15. Reduce number of characters for push URL on live data sets

    When I try to paste my URL on live streaming services it happened too many times that the service had a character limitation which left me with no other options. It would be nice if the URL could fall under 128 characters.

  17. Groups API - create readonly groups

    We would like to be able to create groups via API in readonly mode. It is not possible to specify isReadOnly field while creating a group. IsReadOnly field is being returned on Get groups but we have no way to specify it when creating a new group. It is crucial to be able to create groups in readonly mode as we are trying to automate deployments.

  18. Update parameter into .pbix file

    Update Parameter Function only effect on Cloud but does not actually change the value into the .pbix file.
    We need this function to directly modified the parameter inside .pbix file so that other editor could get updated parameter via download from Cloud.

  19. Add Dataset Size property to Get Dataset[asadmin] REST API

    To effectively administer premium environment, it is important to estimate the relative size of each dataset to understand their potential impact on capacity memory consumption. This data is available as historic value in "Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics" app but it doesn't provide an endpoint to pull it programatically.

  20. Enable SSH Jumps

    To access a server via an SSH jump would be very handy. This is a requirement of many of my clients. The direct connection to a database is not always requiret due to security issues.
