  1. power bi embedded printing

    For Power BI Embedded, i would like to see a facility to print a dashboard page (not the whole report) to PDF.

    My user group regularly asks about this. Using Snipping Tool is not really good enough.

    My dashboard has 20 pages so printing the whole report to PDF would not work.

  3. Page defaultSize for mobile layout

    When I embed a report and I get page defaultSize, I get always the same values of this property when layout is mobile or desktop. The defaultSize values should be different on every layout, because they are different indeed.

  9. Allow users to create a DataSource name in PowerBI desktop so they are more easily identified in Report Server

    There are a few capabilites with the REST API to now PATCH data sources in Report Server for PowerBI Reports including changing embedded DataSource credentials. Currently each embedded DataSource is identified in the GUI as "Data Source 1, Data Source 2, etc." When you get the DataSources from the API, an array/list is returned of all the DataSources...a lot of fields are returned blank, including "name". This leads only a few unique identifying qualities here...the ID (has no meaning to a user, no way for a user to know the ID) possibly the connection string, and the position of the…

  11. Refresh API

    There are quite a few features that would be nice to be consolidated into a refresh API update. Top three:


    1. Configure refresh schedule from API

    2. Retrieve refresh schedule from API

    3. Turn on/off refresh schedule from API

    Retrieving the refresh schedule along with the refresh history will allow for schedule optimization in a premium environment.

  12. Limit paging changes in Edit Mode

    Allow hiding of the page navigation tabs for an embedded report in Edit Mode, or otherwise prevent the adding, moving, or removing of pages while allowing other kinds of edits.

    This would allow application of page-level JavaScript filters to be applied to the appropriate pages, and keep other programmatic page-based logic from becoming out-of-sync with an editable report.

  13. Ability to select data and pass it to an external API from the powerBI dashboard (Actionable dashboards)

    Lets say you have a map of the US diabetic patients, you drill down from state to city to a county in california.
    How about selecting this chart (members) and passing the data through an API to another application?
    This could be huge.
    The other application could assign free gym memberships to all the identified members for example.

    This way, you tie actions to insights.

    You can do this by either exporting data or exporting the filters (queries) that were applied to get to that viz.

  14. PBI Embedded Playground - improvements

    Few suggestions:
    Add generate token in group functionality as per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/embedtoken/reports_generatetokeningroup#code-try-0

    GetPage currently returns a different name e.g. "Report Section - Page 1" but embed pagename property does not find this page it is actually "ReportSection" as per the PBI URL

    Make the parameters sticky between examples would make test embedding own reports much easier. Have to re-enter own report id and token for each example

  15. Expose sharing information for Reports and Dashboards in PowerShell and REST API

    We would like to gather data on who has access to our reports and dashboards, especially when they are shared externally. In Powershell, the Workspace object has information on Admins and Members. But Report and Dashboard objects do not have any information on who it is shared with.

  16. Streaming datasets - measures limitation

    Hey, so it seems like a bug, not an idea for a new feature but anyway..

    Right now it is not possible to aggregate live datasets values by date.
    Also color coding by measures is not working correctly.

    Thanks,
    Rafal

  17. Adobe Analytics Connector Upgrade to API 2.0

    Power BI still connects to Adobe Analytics API version 1.4 . Adobe Analytics now has a new API version 2.0 and the power bi connector should mirror to speed up queries
