  1. 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;

  5. 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?

  6. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Autenticação

    I'm brazilian. Gostaria de sugerir a implementação de autenticação via web forms, tal qual no ssrs. Isso me permitiria automatizar a autenticação de um portal local com o power bi.

  14. PowerBI API Fails with non HTTP 200 and no details of failur when capacity DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) limit is near being reached

    Critical PowerBI API calls fail with non HTTP 200 status and no details in JSON response when capacity DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) limit is near being reached.

    The PowerBI APIs should return with a HTTP 200 status and provide details that the DirectQuery/Live Connection (per sec) metric is near the capacity level limit or even exceeded it and return a proper status. Right now the API will fail with an HTTP 401 or HTTP 500 completely failing and no JSON or response back.

    We call the Microsoft PowerBI api using the Microsoft.PowerBI.Api NuGet package version 2.5.0

    Examples of places we…

  17. View Power Bi Report published in local report server to view in Asp.Net Web application directly.

    View Power Bi Report published in local report server to view in Asp.Net Web application directly.
    Instead of logging in to azure taking the token and making things difficult. It would be better for government organization applications. Since they are mostly deployed on private servers for security issues.

    It would be great if there is a .dll implementation into the asp.net platform to edit and deploy the report along with the rest of the application.

    At least an API implementation with azure would do wonders by itself as well.

  18. DatasourceID on Dataset from Power BI API

    We are able to get workspaces, reports, datasets, gateways and datasources from gateways, but I'm unable to find the relationship between the dataset and the datasource for the power bi metadata model.

    Since a dataset is scheduled using a datasource on the gateway, I would like to be able to link each dataset with the datasource from wich it pulls the data from.

    Thanks.
    Leo.
