  3. 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. On Premise Gateway Reading Proxy from Environment Variables

    Provide functionality for On Premise Gateway to read proxy from the environment variables setup on the server. In some scenarios, the direct ports are not opened within the organization and the only option to connect data source is through the httpsproxy or httpproxy. Power BI Desktop is able to read these proxy from environment variable however, it fails for gateway.

  8. Can't delete Gateway Cluster after deleting all the instances

    Something went wrong
    We could not remove this gateway because it is the primary gateway within a cluster that has other gateway instances. Please remove other gateway instances from this cluster before removing the primary gateway.
    Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

  9. Manage an On-premises Data Gateway Cluster through REST API

    Using an Azure Logic App we currently verify data gateway availability before processing Analysis Services models. After moving to a high-availability gateway cluster, we want to check the availability of the cluster, not only the primary node. A REST API to manage the cluster would be very helpful.

  13. more specific info about why scheduled refresh failed

    Hi, I really appreciate the email that is generated when the scheduled refresh failed. Would it be possible to add there:
    - name or ID of workspace failed report is in?
    - information why it failed (eg. "Could not resolve QueryDefinition due to invalid SourceEntity reference '<pi>_MyMeasures</pi>'. This error often happens after the Entity was renamed or deleted. Please update the query/visual to use the new name or undo the name change. - Source: 'User' "

    It would be very helpful for us, who have many workspaces and need to know what is wrong.

    Thank you,
    Zuzana

  14. .xlsb Excel file data refresh support

    .xlsb Excel files can be loaded in Power Bi Desktop. Unfortunately the data refresh via a gateway is not possible and fails.

  15. gateway usage

    Usage Report for Enterprise Gateway - The log data should be available so that we can create dashboards based on Gateway Usage data.
    Metrics like the datasets name using Gateway, workspace name, owner, scheduled refresh frequency, adhoc refresh, run duration and other parameters for all dependent reports should be available. This will help in scaling the Enterprise Gateway correctly and avoid bottlenecks. Currently there is no visibility to the work spaces for which we don't have access however responsible for maintaining gateway.

  16. Add Relative Time filtering to the Visual Level filter line chart

    Since now PowerBI has real time data there is no way to filter a line chart based on the last "x" minutes. In the relative date filtering it is handy to have to choose minutes.

  17. Make Azure VM scaleset image available for powerBI gateway

    Our entire organization reports depend on single enterprise gateway and at time the load increases to maximum, triggering us to add a new node manually.

    this manual node is waste of time to monitor manually and take down to reduce costs, when not in use.

    if you start supporting azure vm scalesets, this would provide following benefits
    -> auto scale on load
    -> reduce costs with scale down options

  19. Feature to disable connection in Power BI Gateway

    In Power BI gateway we have available features to add and remove connection; but we do not have anything like enable/disable. However a feature to be able to disable connection will be helpful when resetting/changing password in a connection. Or sometime we want to hold a particular database to be accessed from Power BI when some maintenance activity is in progress in that database. So it would be helpful if we can control the connectivity to different sources in the gateway using disable/enable.
