  1. Replace SSRS with Power BI?

    Replace SSRS with Power BI? Is that on the visualization road map for Microsoft? Currently there are a lot of overlaps and Power BI can do (almost) everything SSRS can and then some. To be clear, I understand these 2 tools are used for different things but I don't see why Power BI can't be improved/enhanced enough to replace SSRS in the long run.

  2. Map auto zoom not working properly on first open of a tab

    When a tab first opens, if a map has a preset slicer so there are data points to show on a report tab, the auto zoom often does not actually zoom to "fill" the space. Click on and off a slicer...and the zoom works properly from there out. Seemed to start with April release.

  3. allow KPI to pass parameter to dataset

    Datasets created in 2016 SSRS for PBI RS seem primed to accept parameters from KPIs, but I see nowhere to input the parameter in the KPI. Can you update this?

  4. No download button for hosted excel workbooks in Report server

    Users with Role "Browse" should be able to download the excel-files if excel-oos is used.

    At the moment we have to change the role to enable it- however the user can change/delete/modify the reports which we want to avoid.

  6. Power Bi Report Server Desktop allow user the enter full report path to save reports.

    Power Bi Reporting Desktop to allow the user Save report using by providing full location in the file name textbox http:/xx/reports/folder1/folder2/fodler3 rather than navigating the folder by folder to save the file.

    This will improve the usability and user experience in greater speed. currently it is very hard/cumbersome to navigate the nth level folder to save the file.

    Example:
    http:/xx/reports/folder1/folder2/fodler3

  7. PBRS KPI Visualization Color

    Would like the ability to change the color of the visualization in the Power BI Report Server KPIs. It seems to be stuck at white and this doesn't contrast well with a yellow background.

  8. Publish an App to different groups with selected reports

    It would be nice if an App can be published to more than one security set of groups. For instance, I want to publish report 1, report 2 to Group 1 and report 3, report 4 to Group 2 from the same workspace. Currently everyone who have permissions to the App sees everything in the group or excludes for everyone if do not include is used.

  9. not show hidden items

    In web version of the new ssrs 2016 you can hide folders and they do hide, but once you connect to the same ssrs via this app you still see those folders unhidden.
    Please apply same logic related to hidden items to app as it is done for web portal.

    I can explain why we nee this.
    We use our SSRS server both for regular paginated reports (*.rdl) and mobile ssrs reports (*.rs.mobile). The *.rdl folders are only used through web portal and the *.rs.mobile only through app. We want to have less folders available in the mobile version, because…

  10. Allow streaming data sets on premise

    As part of the product it would be phenomenal to have constantly refreshing monitors as part of the base product. An example of a monitor that would be great and constantly update is under the monitors section here:

    http://www.poshud.com/Components

    People could use that for tons of functionality.

    After researching this is similar to streaming data sets which seem to have a large set of limitations and set up required. We would just look for a constant updated monitor for things like SCOM monitors.

  11. Download Button configurable target URLs

    Would it also be posible to make the location of the files behind the download button configurable? In our organisation we do not have a direct connection to internet, but we do use the tools.

    I would like to change the location to a own webserver or maybe a seperate "tools" virtual directory on reportserver itself?

  12. Power BI Report Server - Expose rest to fetch Tabular connection

    We are embedding power bi report server reports in our internal applications. In order to enhance data analytics on the model that was created (when using import mode) we need a rest API to get the cube information. This will allow us to directly connect to the model.
    Currently I do not see the APi under https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis/microsoft-rs/SSRS/PBI3.0
    Thanks

  13. Export underlying data from card - specify order of fields

    When 'exporting underlying data' from a card on the Power BI online service it would be valuable to have the exported columns be in a particular order every time that the user specifies or that is based on a known way that the user influence change (similar to how the export order from a table is determined by the order that the fields are brought into the table).

  15. Support HTTP (msmdpump) connections to AS

    My customers have strict 3 tier architecture requirements and have implemented Excel connecting to SSAS tabular over HTTP (msmdpump.dll). While evaluating PBI Report Server, this become a technical blocker and it will be great to have PBI Report Server supporting this!

  16. Allow easy lookup of all unique permissions (non-inherited items, folders)

    When you break inheritance on folders or items you are unable to easily see all of these unique secured items.

    In SharePoint integrated mode this was possible in SharePoint by clicking the "Show me uniquely secured items of this list" and it would give you all folders and items that were uniquely secured.

    This is a necessary feature to replicate security permissions to other environments.

  17. Improve the Report Servers Authentication setup + solution

    If people are having too many Active Directory Groups, e.g. very experienced top management then it might happen that the October release of Power BI Report Server cannot serialize the authorization header.

    The user will experience only "Error 400 - Authorization header is too big"

    The problem is stated - and hereby I confirm - here: https://www.qumio.com/Blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=52

    You can run into REAL trouble if you want to present a solution you tested before with a lot of people and it fails because a manager has too many AD groups.

    I changed the registry settings according to the manual and now…

  19. Renaming of Measures in Report Server

    Renaming of Measures are working in Power BI services. But still this feature is not available for Power BI report server. In SSAS tabular Model we can not create measures with same name but there should be way to rename Measures in Power BI Visual. Power BI desktop for report sever Aug preview is supporting the feature but when deployed on Reports server measures are not getting renamed.

  20. Default Drill Through option for selected views

    I have a report where it has multiple views in it. I just want to make default Drill Through option for Map View and Pivot View. When I selected drill through option and saves report. It's working till I refresh my screen. Once I refresh it's coming back to normal drill. It's causing the issue for users to select that option again.

    If we have save option that would be really good
