    The refresh of a pbi with multiple data sources and excel files from aharepoint folders currently only refreshes using a personal gateway. Please make it possible to schedule a refresh using the on prem data gateway. Thanks!

  4. Publicação em servidores internos

    Trabalho um uma empresa onde não é permitido publicar os dashboards por questões de segurança e sensibilidade dos dados. Uma boa atualização seria a opção de publicar em servidores internos da empresa. Ex AZure

  5. PowerbI desktop gateway support

    PowerBI should be able to use the data sources setup under the Gateway instead of local.

    This will allow us to prevent direct access from end user workstation to the DB server over custom ports.

  6. Gateway at SQL Server Level

    We should not have to setup a Gateway under a cluster for each database connected in the PBIX file. One for each SQL server should suffice. This is way too taxing on admin resources.

  7. Add Data Source (TABLE LEVEL) in Enterprise Gateway

    As of now you cannot add a data source at the Table level. You can only add a data source at the database level and that can be added only once on a gateway.

  8. Gateway Window to run on the background

    This is something I discussed with Mike shelton, currently the gateway window is always on the desktop for the gateway to be online. It would be nice to have this window run on the background instead of on screen. It takes up the real estate of the desktop.

  10. Updating data source/dashboard/report

    It is very problematic when you create a report/dashboard in Power BI Desktop then publish it to your workspace, then you have to make an update in Desktop, publish again then try to refresh in your workspace but actually you have to go to a 3rd place (gateway) to update the data source. Now we're doing too much.

  11. Regarding the enforced setting of HTTPS communication of On-premise Data Gateway

    Although I am aware that the enforced setting of HTTPS communication is to be performed after installing On-premise Data Gateway, I hope its Installer to be improved so as to execute its setting during installing
    in order to give higher priority to the enforced HTTPS communication resulted from the security improvement along with the end of support for TLS1.0 having begun since Nov 2017.

  12. Enterprise Gateway Limitations

    Enterprise/Personal Gateways Schedule Refresh

    I would like to schedule auto refreshes for import connections via an enterprise gateway to SQL Server Analysis Services.

    In my pbix file, I am connected to a SQL Server Analysis Service (import mode) via an enterprise gateway and an Azure SQL databases via a personal gateway. I would like to schedule auto refreshes for all data source within PowerBI Service. I cannot schedule auto refreshes due to PowerBI limitations. If i create a live connection to the SQL Server Analysis Services, I can schedule auto refreshes, but cannot overlay data from the Azure SQL Database.

  15. Dead "Learn More" link in Dataset Refresh failure notification

    Hi,

    Has anyone noticed that the "Learn More" link in the dataset refresh notifications is dead?

    Here is where the link leads:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/refresh-tools-for-troubleshooting-issues/

    This is what I think it should probably point to:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/refresh-troubleshooting-refresh-scenarios

  16. support "Publish To Web" also for "Analysis Services"

    Have several OLAP cubes and prepared Power BI reports on it which I can act on within PowerBI Services.

  18. Ability for authorized users of an Enterprise gateway connection to use credentials from that connection in Power BI desktop.

    We would like to enable a large set of users to access an Oracle data warehouse that does not support AD authentication. Currently they access the EDW thru Hyperion IR with an embedded service account providing access to the data. In other words, access to the data is restricted by the application i.e. Hyperion vs by the database.

    It would be awesome if these users could be authorized to the Enterprise gateway connection which was setup for this warehouse and then inherit the service account credentials saved in the gateway connection to connect to the warehouse from Power BI Desktop.…

  19. Create 'Global Table Refresh' structure

    Each table used in at least one dashboard is set to refresh [needs an increase in options on this one] by a variable integer of hours, days, weeks, months, etc. Then any dashboards needing to connect to that table would be able to refresh as often as the table or less frequent, so that each table in the Gateway is only pinged once regardless of how many reports/dashboards it lives in. Also significantly reduces the number of 'GET' creations are needed if I have a 'STORE' of the GETs I use now already being refreshed.

  20. Please improve the error messages in the Gateway

    The current feedback for a user/administrator is totally useless when there is an error.
    I expect a unique errorcode so that I can look it up on the internet
    I expect a direct link to microsoft for more help.
    I expect a name of which connection goes wrong.
    I expect a name of the PBIX file that goes wrong.
