  1. 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

  2. Allow email notification at failed refresh also to external users

    Allow email notification at failed refresh also to external users as some users are assisted from external users of other tenants or has to notify that reports are not update for some reason.

  4. Make it so you do not have to take over a dataset refresh.

    When configuring a refresh of a dataset, only the person who originally configured the refresh can see the settings. For someone else to take it over, you need to then enter all of the connection information in again. It would be nice to be able to see and modify this information without having to set it all up again.

  5. 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

  6. Enable Paginated Reports to use a Gateway to connect to Azure SQL Instances

    Currently you can create a Gateway connection to an Azure SQL instance using an SQL type connection when the Gateway service is running on an appropriately configured VM. With a Paginated report you do not have the ability to chose this Gateway to connect to the data source but instead have to use a basic connection to connect directly to the Azure SQL instance. This does not work if the Azure SQL Instance does not allow Azure services to connect.

  7. 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.

  8. Manage Power BI Personal Data Gateways

    As an administrator I want to be able to manage existing Power BI Personal Data Gateways like I can with Enterprise Data Gateways. i.e. become an Admin on the gateway, be able to modify it and delete it.

  10. automate install and registration of data gateway by scripts

    For enterprise systems, the VM for the gateways sometimes are provisioned by automated systems without human manual process, but the gateway needs to be installed by a human due to the UI installer and the login process.

    Can the gateway be installed, login, register, test connection completely by using scripts ?

  11. Should have an Option to make a copy of Existing Gateway to test when to Move Gateways to Other Server.

    We are deploying gateway to new servers to replace existing. To ensure a smooth transition, we need to replicate existing gateways configuration (data sources - db type, server, port, credentials) in advance to mitigate risk and validate.

  12. Service principal with Power BI and Data Gateway

    Currently the Service principal account cannot leverage the On-Premises Data Gateway since it is not a mail-enabled account. This prevents a Power BI Embedded solution to leverage an on-premises SSAS tabular model leveraging the service principal. Instead we need a full-blown power BI pro license for a service account. I would like the capability to leverage the data gateway added to the service principal Power BI authentication.

  13. mulitple entries in gateway for the same database

    It would be useful to be able to mulitple entries in gateway for the same database because the access level may be different. We have one database and multiple schemas for our warehouse and we do not want to expose all schemas.

  15. Edit gateway connection

    The idea in short:

    1) We should be able to alter the server name used for a data source in the enterprise data gate way

    2) We should be able to choose other data sources of the same data source type when mapping data set data sources to enterprise gateway data sources

    BACKGROUND
    Today you can rename and change credentials for a data source in the enterprise data gateway, but you can not change the data source type nor the server it is pointing to. I can understand the limitation on changing data source type - but to be able…

  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…
