  1. Url parameter (pageName) to specify page of PowerBI Report in PBI RS

    In Power BI Report server (on-prem) it would be nice, if we were able to specify the landing page of a PowerBI report using an url-parameter, in the same way as it is possible in the service using ?pageName=Page2

  2. Subscription for Power BI reports from Report Server

    I know this idea was recently (April 2019) shot down by Microsoft, even with over 2,000 votes in favor of it, but I'm bringing it up again. The simple fact is, we are bound by regulations that keep us from using the cloud service, so the on-premise Power BI Report Server is our only option for widespread report distribution. Paginated reports on PBIRS can be subscribed to, which makes the inability to add Power BI reports to subscriptions even more frustrating. This lack of support severely limits our ability to grow acceptance for the platform. I ask that you please…

  4. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

  8. Add an interface in Power BI Reports for browsing shared datasets on the Report Server.

    A current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a "Shared Dataset" connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared datasets.

    This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding…

  9. Print Full report from power Bi server

    Would like the option to be able to print the "full" report (every page) from power BI report server instead of only having the option "print current page".

  11. Allow author of power bi report to specify a default page

    Allowing the author or authors to specify a default page for the report will make it so that when the report is updated or changed, the person making the update does not have to remember to select the "default" page before saving and publishing. This will save a ton of headache from many end users wondering why their "default" page changed on them after making an adjustment to the report.

  12. Allow composite model (directquery from multiple data sources, directquery+import) in Power BI Report Server

    Released in PowerBI Desktop last November 2018, please make the "composite model" functionality available in Power BI Report Server. Key functionality requried is being able to use Direct Query against more than 1 data source, or mix Direct Query and Import in the 1 PowerBI report.

    Currently Power BI Desktop (optimized for Power BI Server) will force you into Import mode once you start to mix data sources, which can see you importing a lot of data.

    Thank you,

    AngusF

  13. Publish Power BI Dataset in Report Server

    When publishing a report in Power BI Report Server, allow an option to select:
    - Do you also want the dataset to be deployed?

    This would work in the same way as Power BI Service datasets and reports. No need for dashboards.
    This way multiple Power BI reports in Report Server can be built from the same common dataset.

  15. Be able to disable the "include link" option in PowerBI Report Server email subscriptions and/or set default to unchecked.

    Frequently customers want to set the default value for subscriptions such as set the default for Include Link to unchecked. There are customers adding javascript to the aspx page to force the field to unchecked (showing the need). This should be saved in the configuration table so it can be modified.

  16. Capability to save the configured Filter Settings in PowerBI Report Server Reports

    There are different users which use our reports on a PowerBi Report Server. They also use different values for the filters in the report. When they start the report the values of the report developer are applied to the report, which are, in most cases, not the values the users need.
    If Report Server was able to save the parameters in the form of favorites, the user experience would be improved and the user would be able to see faster the Information they need.

  19. Scheduled data refresh for custom connectors on Power BI Report Server

    Currently the scheduled data refresh on Power BI Report Server (on premise) is not supported for custom connectors. Also Direct Query mode is not available for them (except of ODBC connectors). Combination of these 2 limitations makes the custom connectors practically useless in runtime - the only way to refresh the data is to do it manually in PBI Desktop and to re-upload the report on the server.

    The idea is to allow custom connectors to have scheduled data refresh enabled / supported. It would be of great value to allow developers to create their own connectors and use it…

  20. Automatic refresh function

    Automatic refresh function is not working without creating own report for each of the tabs, and even then, the refresh has to be made for every browser window separately.

    That is not as smooth as the simply reloading the data by clicking the Refresh-button. In cloud Power BI version this problem can be solved putting URL parameter as reportSectionGUID for each tab. It is a shame that the same function is not available at on-prem version.
