  1. PowerBI On Premise Gateway searching multiple domains

    PowerBI On Premise Gateway allows searching single On Premise domains to match Azure UPN to a property in On Premise domain such as 'mail'

    Would be great if this could be enhanced to search multiple domains, forests.

    We have users with single Azure login but multiple on premise domain accounts and the on premise accounts are used for SSAS Tabular access.

  3. PowerBI On Premise Gateway configurable filters for domain search

    PowerBI On Premise Gateway allows us to search on premise domain using looking of Azure UPN to On Premise domain property.

    would be great to have a configuration option to filter/exclude domains or accounts in the search.

    This is in conjunction with this request https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/18757633-powerbi-on-premise-gateway-searching-multiple-doma

    As we have users with accounts in multiple on premise domains so if we can search multiple domains/forests we need to exclude accounts to ensure the correct match. I.e. exclude disabled accounts and domains that aren't searchable that might be in the same forest.

  4. Power Bi Gateway needs to allow for URL parts and HTTP Headers. This is the age of cloud ecospheres, but without it, PowerBi integrates nil.

    Power Bi needs to allow for URL parts and HTTP Headers for Web Service calls in their Gateways.
    Currently, no URL parts or HTTP Headers can be configured. Given that Power Bi only allows for Basic and Windows Authentication, this kills pretty much any Web Service integration outside of Power Bi.

    Arguably, it's ridiculous to ask for such a thing because in the age of cloud ecospheres, a BI solution and especially in Microsoft's Cloud First philosophy, I wouldn't need to ask for Headers to circumvent missing Authentication Methods such as OAuth, Digest, or Hawk, lest asking for a properly…

  5. Choice of data center to publish data

    It would be good to have choice of data center to publish reports and other dashboard data to. For certain business customers there are information governance restrictions on where all data should be stored. So flexibility in this area would be great.

  6. Allow bulk insert(Upload) for a user UPN mapping

    It would be great to have a mechanism of uploading/inserting multiple UPN mapping data at a time. This will save a lot of time when someone has to populate so many UPN mapping for different data source, and it will minimize the the chance of making any error.

    We have been reviewing the Gateway subject with architecture and we have two questions that we need to make sure are clear so we can understand the complete concept and be able to proceed: 
    1. How does Power BI establish a secure connection with an intranet? 
    2. Is Gateway independently installed in a server inside the DMZ so that it can serve as a bridge between Power BI and BW?

    Thanks a Lot!

  12. Support multi-tenant SQL databases by connection string

    I would like to have Power BI datasets specify a SQL connection string that is passed through the Enterprise Gateway so that I have a security context for a specific tenant within the database. This is similar to the DAX function USERNAME() and doing row filtering in the dataset, but the row filtering happens at the data source level, not he dataset level.

    Add support for Yahoo! and gmail accounts. The first account is the administrator, and can select the org name and the org password. The admin can whitelist up to 25 addresses for his organization. For more addresses, the user needs to use an organizational address.

  17. Can we have Enterprise Gateway be enabled over VPN/ExpressRoute?

    We have two large clients who are not allowed to use ServiceBus Relay today as it is regarded as a security hole (their security teams don't scan outbound traffic, so the inbound traffic over the relay is regarded as untrusted).

    We would like Enterprise Gateway to support data transfer over a VPN/Express route so that PowerBI can extract data from on-premises resources without going via the public internet.

    I appreciate that data is secured via SSL but that isn't good enough as their data security policies do not allow data to go via the internet (think PCI DSS compliance).

    (apologies…

  18. To be able to update datasets with the same tables at once

    As a pro user,
    I want the enterprise gateway to update all tables across published datasets on the cloud from the same database,
    so that I have the flexibility to publish variable subsets of my database as self-contained unique datasets.

  19. Automated and periodically broadcast

    We can schedule on a given period an automated data actualization + export to mailing list, with custom or dynamic data filter depending on the addressee - a "broadcast" feature already present in other BI platform solutions.

  20. B2C C2B Data Sharing between Business Intelligence through Excel Export or OData Feed

    As a service company, we are using Power BI to analyze the performance of our service offerings. We often share this data with our customers. We should be able to feed our data directlt into their systems, and take a feed from their systems through Power BI. This would help improve your user base while removing the administrative burden of creating stagnant customer reports.
