  3. Please get applications that you can use embedding with in sync with each other, Dynamics CRM, TEAMS and Sharepoint.

    Please keep Embedding within Dynamics CRM, TEAMS and SharePoint working the same, and with latest Service. Currently EM1 with Power BI Free, you can only embed dashboards, and then only see something if it is an old style App Workspace. Teams and SharePoint, you can only see reports, and it works with New App Workspaces. This is very frustrating.

  6. Connect to Azure API Services in Power BI Service

    We have a requirement to Geocode locations. We subscribed to Azure Maps to using the Geocoding API only to find out that we can't refresh our datamodels in the service as Power BI doesn't recognize the datasource, in dataflows we also get an error where it will continuously ask for credentials related to the Azure API URL even though this works as anonymous in PBI desktop in the subscription key is provided in the URL. Power BI should be able refresh datasets that use Azure APIs in data transformations. Serious...this is one MSFT service to another, this should work out…

  8. Add allowSave parameter to GenerateTokenRequest SDK API call

    In current GenerateTokenRequest method of SDK API, there is a boolean parameter called "allowSaveAs". That's good, but we really need another one for "allowSave". The reason both are important, in addition to the "Edit" access method, is to support the Use Case where we have a set of reports that we don't want the customer to change. These are reports we've created and they shouldn't be altered by anyone but us (when we deploy from PBI Desktop). However, we DO want users to have the ability to do their own customizing of our reports. For this scenario, we would need…

  10. Use a Bookmark when adding a report in Teams

    I'd like to use Teams to deliver a report bookmark view targeted for the team but can't leverage the report bookmark to appropriately focus attention and action rather than spamming the given team with the entire org's info which isn't relevant.

  11. Support for multiple DataViewMappings per custom visual

    As of today only one query per visual is supported : https://microsoft.github.io/PowerBI-visuals/docs/concepts/dataviewmappings/

    For custom visuals with multiple layers, you might need more than one.

    Please support this in Custom Visual API

  16. Update documentation for Power BI REST API via Powershell: Create Datasource

    The documentation on how to create or update gateway data sources using PowerShell needs to be updated. Several users experience issues: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/Power-BI-REST-API-via-Powershell-Create-Datasource/m-p/590293#M17980
    - A working example would be helpfull
    - Detailled instructions how to compose "credentionDetail" information is needed. A working example how to encrypt the credetials would be very helpfull.
    - A list of availlable values for "dataSourceType" is needed.
