  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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…

  11. Remove max rows limit from data via API call

    Remove max rows limit
    Atleast up the limit (alot) for paying customers - maybe the limit should be in sync with the 250GB current filesize limit.

  12. Filter report dataset

    When embedding a report I want to be able to limit the filter values available based on the current user. Could this be done by applying a pre-render filter to the underling reports dataset

  13. Expand Power BI REST API IMPORTS

    It would be great if the existing API returning information about IMPORTS would be expanded with dates describing user activity.

    New fields are “createdDateTime” (the report create data) and “updatedDateTime” (the report edit date) for REPORTS section, and “refreshDateTime” (when data was refreshed) for DATASETS section.

    Like this:
    https://api.powerbi.com/beta/myorg/imports

    {
    "value": [

    {
    
    "id": "xxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "importState": "Succeeded",
    "createdDateTime": "2016-05-31T10:31:36.05",
    "updatedDateTime": "2016-06-02T09:05:57.863",
    "reports": [
    {
    "id": "yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "name": "ImportName",
    &quot;webUrl&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://app.powerbi.com/reports/yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;">https://app.powerbi.com/reports/yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;</a>,
    &quot;embedUrl&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://app.powerbi.com/reportEmbed?reportId=yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;">https://app.powerbi.com/reportEmbed?reportId=yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;</a>,
    &quot;createdDateTime&quot;: &quot;2016-05-31T10:31:36.05&quot;,
    &quot;updatedDateTime&quot;: &quot;2016-06-02T09:05:57.863&quot;
    }
    ],
    &quot;datasets&quot;: [
    {
    &quot;id&quot;: &quot;zxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;,
    &quot;name&quot;: &quot;ImportName&quot;,
    &quot;tables&quot;: [],
    &quot;webUrl&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://app.powerbi.com/datasets/zxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;">https://app.powerbi.com/datasets/zxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&quot;</a>,
    &quot;refreshDateTime&quot;: &quot;2016-06-02T09:05:57.863&quot;

  15. Programatically specify visuals by sending external parameter values

    The most recent update of Power BI takes the service a long way to providing a support for using Power BI as the engine in other applications — has anyone worked out whether the capability now exists to send externally generated parameters that specify the visual required to Power BI?

  16. Showing dashboards over Sharepoint site only for some register users.

    Right now I can embed dashboard into my Sharepoint site via iFrame link which is generated when I press publish to Web in PowerBi service.
    That is great, but user can go deep into website page source and get iFrame code, which means they can share it to the whole world, which is not very secury.
    Is there any chances to make it working only for some users?
    Many thanks

  18. Have the REST API return the columns used in a dashboard and report

    This would give callers the ability to display metadata about a report or dashboard on an external website, or use it to look up additional data about columns in another data store outside powerbi.

  19. Power Bi embedded in Win10 Universal Application.

    We are developing a Win 10 HBI Application in which there is a requirement of consuming a few Power Bi Reports.I followed the Power Bi sample videos of embedding reports in MVC application. We tried to do it using Xaml, since few Power Bi Nuget Packages don't support Univ App we couldn't do it. Now we are trying to develop it with WinJS. Can you help us with how to consume reports into our application using Win JS or Xaml.
