  1. Rest API Apps list and specific App contents (reports, dashboards, users)

    I've been using the Power BI REST API to get the list of reports/datasets/dashboards/tiles/members/etc.), but don't see any option to get the list of Apps and the contents of a specific App (reports, dashboards, app members).

    Please add this to the REST API!

    We really need the Apps list and app contents (reports list, etc) and security information (members that have access to a specific App).

    Thanks!

  2. Power BI Embedded

    Our organization has a worldwide presence and we have to adhere to local country data privacy rules. To successfully deploy Power BI Embedded or Power BI Premium capacities we need to be able to choose specific location region where the capacity is created. Right now the PBIE capacity location region is indirectly related to Azure AD tenant region and directly related to Power BI tenant region. This forces us to create additional Azure AD/Power BI tenants just to have PBIE in a different region. Please disconnect PBIE capacity location from PBI tenant location and offer a wide location region selection.…

  3. Allow setting connectionstring for imported mode via API

    Curently you can set the connection string via 'SetAllDatasetConnectionsInGroup' but only for direct query datasets. Unless this works for imported mode, I don't see how we can make SAAS offerings using imported mode.

  4. Allow R functions to transform data before graphing.

    Let custom R script modify current tables, and let the result set be returned back into PowerBI's charting capabilities. This is similar to the idea of having custom SQL statements as filters for your data source. Having R functions modifying your data before graphing is even more powerful.
