  2. 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.

  4. Power BI Web API Dataset refresh

    Allow Power BI Web datasets that use APIs and API keys to be able to be refreshed properly. Currently if you run an API to get a dataset then you will run into an issue where tying to update the credentials in "Data source credentials" will not work properly.

  5. Enable programatic refresh of reports

    When a user enters data, that want to see the output quickly. Since they are not the owner of the report, they can't refresh on demand. If we were able to write a script to trigger a refresh, then we could refresh the report in SharePoint or application by programming a refresh button that triggers the refresh.

  6. Use Beta or Sandbox area for Microsoft to publish updates

    We recently discovered a Microsoft bug in the embedding environment. After several (incredibly stressful) weeks, we're happy to say MS has scheduled to implement the fix later this month. The idea we propose is for MS to offer a Beta or Sandbox area where it could publish it's update and customers could point to that to try it out. Had this been in-place prior to the update which caused the bug, we could have found it and saved everyone a lot of time and sweat - not to mention preventing problems for our customers.

  7. Refresh failures and other events to webhook

    Our P1 scenario would be to have PowerBi send a notification to a predefined webhook when a refresh fails. This will allow us to process the failure and handle remediation and notification.

    However, other events would be useful to have sent to a webhook including dataset publishing, report changes, etc. Ideally, the model would be similar to the Azure DevOps Service hooks model.

  11. Please allow to pull all data in PowerBI desktop from Adobe Analytics

    Power BI uses the Adobe Analytics Report API to define and run reports for the following tables and bringing top 10 or top 25 items. (See the link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-connect-to-adobe-analytics )

    Our business need all data to get accurate results. Please remove the top elements and pull all data based on dimensions and measure and filter that our business define. We want to pull all data from adobe analytics by using powerbi desktop.

    Thank you.

  13. Allow guest users to utilize Analyze in Excel

    Please allow guest users to utilize Analyze in Excel. Currently guest users are unable to create customized views of the data available. There are features available in pivot tables that cannot currently be created in Power BI Desktop or Service. This would reduce the numerous customization requests we receive from guest users.

  14. Allow Print / Export inside SharePoint embedded

    Allow Print / Export inside SharePoint embedded

    It would be very helpful if we could have the Print / Export Power point functionality in this SharePoint embedded...

    Currently we can only parameterize the Show Navigation Pane and the Show Filter Pane. A show print / export pane would be nice...
    If we just print the page with the headers and the rest the report comes out very poorly.

  15. powerbi embedded for office applications Sharepoint/teams.

    A SKU (Power BI Embedded) can not

    Embed content in MS Office applications:
    - SharePoint
    - Teams (excludes mobile app)
    - Dynamics 365

    This should be enabled. Why? For the customers that want visuals but need elastic pricing.

  16. Cannot use APIs for Data Refresh in PBIS

    We are using APIs in PBIX to get data and the refreshes work. When we upload to PBIS to run and refresh out models in the cloud, the same APIs and M Queries do not work for all our APIs, specifically those with multiple query parameters in the APIS.

    We are an ISV and we want to have multi-tenant (workspace) architecture and refresh our models multiple times a day.

    We need APIs on scheduled refresh.

    Some APIs work (we had to put all relative paths in the main URL), but some cannot connect based on security/truest authentication.

    Please have the…
