  1. Premium Capacity Metrics API

    Please make the Premium Capacity Metrics available via the API. We need to be able to have more than 7 days available. This was mentioned by Josh Caplan in the below video from 2017 and doesn't appear to have ever happened.

  2. Need Read only access without pro license in Teams

    a simple single page report for 5 employees warrants a huge cost in Teams as they all need to have a Pro license.

    Power BI scalability is impossible at current costs.

  3. REST API - Get report description and dataset description

    It is good to have Power BI REST API to get report and dataset description besides the Power BI workspace description. Which will help the organization to get all Power BI reports for better management.

  4. Equivalent of CUSTOMDATA() for non-Analysis Services datasets

    When generating a token for Power BI Embedded for a non-Analysis Services dataset, there currently isn't a dedicated way to pass additional information to refine the data returned when the report is rendered. Essentially, an equivalent of CUSTOMDATA() would be welcome.

    Currently, you can use the "username" field to pass in a custom string and then parse the result in the RLS rules in Power BI Desktop, but this isn't ideal, as I doubt this is the "username" field's intended use. It would be great if there were a way to pass additional context as part of the Embed Request.

  5. reset to default functionality with Power Bi Embedded

    When using Power Bi Service (https://app.powerbi.com/home) there is an option to press the "reset to default" button on the top navigation bar and removing all of the slicers and filters added by the user bringing the report to its default state as it was created by the report editor.

    This allow the user to quickly "go back" to the default version of the report.

    This functionality doesn't exist with Power Bi Embedded, as for today with power bi embedded there is no way to allow the user such functionality.

    We have also try to find a workaround for…

  6. Update(Write back data in) the database from Power BI

    I have a case where if the severity appears "low" then the user can change it to "high" or "medium". After changing this the severity should also get updated in the database. Do we need APIs or PowerApps or anyother functionality of Power BI with which this can be done? We are using direct query to fetch the data into the dashboard but the issue her is to write back data into database from PowerBI dashboard

  7. Can not Delete Streaming Dataset rows using PowerBI REST API

    That DELETE API is to delete the rows from one table in a normal dataset. I don't think it is applicable to the streaming dataset, as the streaming dataset doesn't contain any explicit table.

  13. Add Gateway Activity Logging for the Power BI Activity Log

    Currently, the Power BI Activity Log does not track gateway refresh activities. The log only tracks refresh activity at the user level. Since production datasets are refreshed by gateways and not users, please add gateway activity into the log.

  14. API for grouped visuals in power bi report

    Currently there is no way to identify grouped visuals in power bi report from Embedded perspective.
    It will be very helpful to design EMBEDDED reports based on screen size (desktop, mobile, iPad etc)

  15. Including 'Skip Test Connection' field in Gateway REST API

    Including 'Skip Test Connection' field in Gateway REST API to fetch gateway details. This will be particularly helpful for Power BI Admins to get values of skip test connection (whether is true or false) for all gateways, since, having test connection enabled is a more efficient way of monitoring if there are any gateway connectivity issues, so if the API fetches test connection values, admins can identify the connections which have currently disabled test connection and can modify such gateways to enable test connections.

    Currently the API only fetches basis gateway fields, addition of 'skip test connection' field could be…

  17. Export Power BI report template using PowerShell script

    Export Power BI report as PBIT using PowerShell or C# to automate the process. Power BI is currently supporting manual process to export PBIT files. However, it is tedious process when you have 100s of reports scattered on multiple workspaces.

  18. Copy dataset to another workspace

    I would like to be able to copy a dataset to another workspace.

    The use case is very simple - when making any changes to a dataset, the dataset of course refreshes its entire history (in line with the incremental load policy), and in the service will only show the range of data that was selected when publishing, to end users.

    What I would like to do is make changes to a dataset, load the entire history of the dataset to a development workspace, and then when it has finished, copy this dataset over to production.

    I have not been…
