  1. Email notifications on auto-refresh failure

    The scheduled data source failure notification is only sent to the data source owner, it would be more useful if you could specify the recipient(S) or group.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Pass SSO user credentials through the Power BI gateway

  5. Please allow monthly refresh of data on the schedule refresh option in server. (and let us choose the date, like 4th of every month)

    It is a suggestion for allowing monthly refresh where the user can select the date on which it needs to be refreshed as well

  7. 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.

  8. Disable End Users from Installing/Configuring Personal Gateways

    As a Power BI administrator I don't want end users installing and configuring Personal Gateways. Please can an option be created to restrict who can install and configure Gateways.

  9. Activity Monitor Enterprise Gateway

    It would be very interesting to have the option to see the activity carried out through the gateway in the Power BI service, so that it can be seen in a simple way, the actions of updating the data sets that has been carried out from a gateway / connection, by way of the update history of the data sets but from the administration of the gateway.

    Regards

  10. PowerBI Gateway - Add Azure SQL Database as a datasource connection type

    We're using PBI gateways to secure traffic / queries to Azure SQL Database. We are doing this by deploying the gateway on a VM in Azure, restricting access to the DB to sources on that Virtual Network with a VNET firewall rule. So, PBI datasources that use this Azure SQL DB have to run through the gateway.

    The PBI gateway currently only allows a "SQL Server" connection type which is limited in a few ways: 1) Windows Auth doesn't work in this scenario - not supported, Azure SQL isn't part of the domain even though we can add add AAD…

  11. Gateway Data Source Ordering

    Currently, the data sources under the data gateway don't have any order. Could you sort them at least by the name? It's hard to work with multiple data sources when they are spread randomly on the list.

  12. Live refresh monitoring!!

    We need ability to monitor gateway refreshes in real-time:
    -have an overall view of what's running right now: datasets, workspace, gateways, memory, CPU. We have it in the PBI capacity metrics, but only, the day after that is not helping for live monitoring.
    -ability to cancel a refresh when it has started
    -use past stats to provide some ETA on refresh currently running, and provide a way to display that ETA on a report
    -see the "true" current state (not just the wheel running) often it's broken but we see the error only 2 hours after
    Thanks!

  15. Refresh Schedule frequency option for setting at any time instead of 30 mins interval.

    Right now Power BI allows scheduling refreshes for every 30 mins. It would be great if we could set refresh at any time , without restricting for every 30 mins

  16. Progress bar when refreshing datasets in Power BI Service

    It would be very useful to have a progress bar when refreshing a dataset in the Power BI Service interface.
    A step further would be to have the progress in general for the dataset and separately for each of the data sources in the dataset.

  17. Enterprise Gateway - Active Directory Security Groups as Users

    In the gateway data source I am forced to add each user individually to allow them to create a report off that data source.
    Alternately I can create custom groups in o365.
    We have already established security groups on our system would it be possible for these groups to be used?
    This is an extra layer of security for hundreds of users that has already been solved through active directory synchronization with office 365.

    The use case is to add a security group or multiple group to be authorized to create reports off the data source. When we add or…

  19. 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…

  20. Active Directory/Microsoft Account authentication in Power BI Gateway for SQL Server

    To setup SQL Server (Azure SQL Managed Instance) datasources in Power BI gateway, we have two authentication methods: Windows, Basic. There is no option for Organizational Accounts/Active Directory/Microsoft Account.

    Please introduce this, as we are trying to limit SQL user access, and rather rely on Active Directory
