  2. PowerBI API data in sync with UI

    Example: The data from following API
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/power-bi/datasets/getrefreshhistoryingroup

    doesnt match the details provided in the UI, when failures happen..

    please try to change your programming model to make sure the U I is also using same set of APIs as released to developers publicly... this will make sure we have all the data needed programatically.. right now there is no sync betweeen public release and UI data completeness.

  3. PowerBI Sharepoint web part, each page with a separate nav bar link

    PowerBI Sharepoint web part, each report page with a separate nav bar link

    It would be good to have each Page of a PowerBI report as a separate link on the left Sharepoint Nav panel. This can easily be done via manual link creation, BUT the filter selections reset between pages when done this way.

  4. Power BI SharePoint Online report web part accessible to external guest users who have their own Power BI Pro license

    Power BI SharePoint Online report web part accessible to external guest users using their own Power BI Pro license.

    This is important for using Sharepoint Portals to share PowerBI content with clients, to avoid paying double for PowerBI licenses.

    i.e. as per article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-azure-ad-b2b, PowerBI Pro licenses can be used from the guest users tenancy, without needing the sharer to issue a second PowerBI Pro license. Except this doesn't currently work for the Power BI SharePoint Online report web part , and a SECOND PowerBi Pro license has to be issued. The external guest already has one, and the…

  6. Ability to list/modify accesses for a specific entity - report/dashboard/dataset in a workspace

    The current Power Bi Rest Api doesnt support to list the permissions granted to various users/SGs for an entity in the power bi workspace. It would be great to have an api or powershell cmdlets in place to be able to list and modify these accesses/permissions so that it helps in easy management of pbi workspaces in large enterprises

  7. Add fullscreen button for embed in SharePoint Online

    Add a fullscreen button to Power BI reports embedded in Sharepoint Online. This is already supported for reports embedded in SharePoint with the "publish to web" feature, but not for reports using secure embed. Right now this is the final feature lacking for us in order to use SharePoint as a complete portal for all our Power BI reports.

  8. Error message is missing from API refresh history

    The API to get refresh history does not include the error message for failed refreshes. If you look in the service and view the history you'll see something like this:

    Underlying error message: AnalysisServices: The connection either timed out or was lost.

    or this:

    Underlying error message: AnalysisServices: Server: The operation was cancelled because of locking conflicts.

    (both very helpful)

    However if you pull the refresh history from the API you only see this (the exact same message) for both failures:

    'serviceExceptionJson': '{"errorCode":"DMGWPipelineGateway_MashupDataAccessError","errorDescription":"-2147467259."}

    (not very helpful)

    We need the 'Underlying error message' to surface in the API.

  9. Allow User Filters to be saved in Power BI Embedded

    When using Power BI Embedded, Users always have to 'suffer' the default filters that the designer used, whereas there is a very useful function 'save user filters' for Power BI Pro & Premium.

    I am aware this can be custom coded by passing filters into the PBI API, however this is not the same as being able to pass a 'User ID' and letting Power BI service save the actual last filters used by the user.

  10. Enable SSH Jumps

    To access a server via an SSH jump would be very handy. This is a requirement of many of my clients. The direct connection to a database is not always requiret due to security issues.

  12. Power BI Embedded support for Xamarin or Xamarin.Forms

    Trying to embed a report to WebViews and HybridWebView for Xamarin.Forms is a pain and are close to impossible to achieve. Please develop a better way to easily embed report content into native mobile apps.

  13. Hotjar API

    We use Hotjar surveys to measure our CES score on 'thankyou' pages. At the moment we have to refresh all the hotjar datadumps by hand to refresh data. Therefore it would be great to have a automated data import from Hotjar in Power BI, this would save a lot of time.

  14. New filter pane experience

    Currently we have the new filter pane working in desktop and powerbi.com as desired; but it is not visible in our embedded environment when accessed that way. Should the new filter experience work in the embedded environment? If so, what are the steps to enable? If not, will this be a feature in the future?

  16. MSI authentication method for dataset refresh triggering via POST

    To fully integrate our Data Factory pipelines and our Power BI reports we should be able to trigger a dataset update from a Data Factory Pipeline. Thus, it would be nice to have a simpler authentication method e.g., via MSI like we do to start an Azure SSIS integration Runtime. If you do it then please provide a proper example with some print screens etc. Thanks.

  18. Add connector to Redbooth

  19. Finish implementing filters in embedded, e.g. topN

    When embedding a visual, we can change its filters with setFilters, as described in the docs:

    https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-JavaScript/wiki/Filters

    But for several kinds of filter this does not work, and this limitation is also noted on that page, e.g. "[ITopNFilter below is currently not supported]"

    The problem is, when we call setFilter it replaces the existing filters. Some filters are absolutely necessary for the report's functionality. They must not be removed. So to set an additional filter of a supported type (e.g. a simple date range) we must call getFilter to retrieve existing filters, then append our extra filter, then call setFilter.
