  1. Send Refresh Failure Notifications to Distribution List

    It would be helpful to be able to set up a distribution list of those to send refresh failure notifications to. Currently, only the owner receives an email, but we have several administrators that require notification when certain reports fail.

  2. Allow data sources for a gateway to be filtered and sorted

    It would be useful to sort the data sources defined on a gateway by name, or even better to be able to filter the name. This would make admin simpler.

  4. Combine multiple Gateway in single dataset/report

    Currently, all data sources in a Power BI report/dataset, that are not on cloud, must be available in a single Gateway to work.

    But if the datasources in the report are coming from different Gateways, that doesn't work. It is not possible to combine them for refresh.

    Say I have a Sales Report. It connects to DB A, B and C.

    DB A and B is configured in Gateway X
    DB C is configured in Gateway Y.

    The report creator have been provided access to all of them.

    Now if I try to configure data refresh in PBI Service, it…

  5. Adding SPN as Data Source User

    We should be able to add SPN as data source user and dataset binding should be possible using rest API and power shell cmdlet.

  6. Greater Control of Gateway Cluster List

    I'd like to be able to group gateways together based locally defined criteria; and then be able to sort those gateways within the group either by alpha order or date of creation or whatever I choose. I have full ability to sort my bank accounts; why not DMGs :) ?

  7. Show datasets, reports and dashboards that are using a specific gateway data source

    Our customer has an enterprise gateway with a number of SSAS cubes on premise. We have no way of knowing what reports, dashboards and datasets will break if we change a cube.
    This info isnt available on the portal.
    Please implement this as an administrative data flow or report so administrators can quickly see all of the data and filter by connection strings etc rather than clicking through tons of things in the service portal.

  8. Allow users with "Can use"-permission access to on-premises data gateway in Power Platform Dataflows

    currently users without "Admin"-permissions are not able to use a on-prem data gateway with a Power Platform Dataflow.

  9. SAP

    Connect to SAP BW with single-sign-on via on-premise gateway

    Large SAP BW installations with thousands of users are often accessed via single-sign-on (SSO) e.g. the users windows credentials are used to authenticate to BW. SSO simplifies the user experience and reduces user administration costs. These users should be able to setup on-premise gateway connections that can be used to refresh data sets in the Power BI Service. The connections should leverage that individuals BW roles & authorizations and not require a BW password i.e. automatically associate the Power BI user ID to the associated SAP user ID.

  10. Pass SSO user credentials through the Power BI gateway

    We need the user SSO credentials to be passed through Gateway connections to Denodo Data Virtualisation layer to be able to securely federate our data/analytics report queries

  11. Gateway Usage monitoring tools for Power BI Service

    As Power Bi and other applications in the Power Platform become more prolific within the BI Cloudscape and Landscape integration, gateways will become used more and more. Having visibility to the capacity of a gateway, the volume of traffic through the gateway, which datasources are used more frequently than others, which types, etc would be a very useful resource to have within the Gateway management system.

  12. Support for docker installation

    It Would be nice to install PowerBi gateway to docker instead of dedicated virtual machine. Dedicated VM -> just waste of resources, docker offers better automation and failover as well.

  15. Creating an Analysis Services tabular data source should not require administrator rights

    Creating an Analysis Services data model source in the data gateway now requires administrator rights in the AS instance. This seems an excessive requirement, it should be enough to give read permissions in the database for the Windows account used to access the data.

  17. Allow users to choose gateways for their datasets without being gateway admins

    If a user uploads a data set to Power BI, it would be nice to be able to allow them to pick a gateway to refresh their data without necessarily being an admin of the gateway. Currently, the user must be an admin to even select the gateway. We might want configuration of gateways to be restricted to a more technical user base, while allowing less technical report authors to make use of them.
