  2. Power BI Report Server needs a "View in Desktop" option

    We have "offical" reports that we don't want general users to be able to overwrite, but these reports are using live connections back to a SSAS cube so we are more than happy to let them open the report in Desktop and make their own version which they could then save back to My Reports or some other folder where they have write access

  5. Download refreshed report from Report Server

    For a report stored on the Power BI Report Server that is refreshed automatically, when the PBIX file is downloaded the original is provided. Provide the report with the up-to-date data instead.

  6. PowerBI Report Server MFA authentication

    It would be better if PowerBI Report Server has the ability to authenticate users with MFA.

    Currently, Power BI Report Server for Mobile Reports has the ability to authenticate users on ADFS but the support for ADFS it could be expensive if you implement it using the best practices.

    It could be a great feature if the Report Server could use AAD. Because some clients have MFA in their AAD; so, it will bring more security and will save money when the Microsoft´s clients have Azure AD with MFA.

    Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/consumer/mobile/mobile-oauth-ssrs

  8. 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. Full Screen Option in Power BI Report server

    It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

  16. PowerBI Report Server Branding only for logo

    Allow PowerBI Report Server Branding to work without Colors.json i.e. only for the logo. Today we need to supply a complete specification of element colors just to upload the logo.

  17. Display PBIX file size in report Server

    Since PBIX files have a maximum size, Report Server needs to be able to show what the file size is for a report so that as file size increases through data refreshes, we can know when a report is getting close to the maximum size and take appropriate action.

  19. Have Power BI Server offer same capability as SSRS Report Server for Parameters

    For Power BI Server have the ability to pass parameters via the URL, or a parameters collection ASP.Net control, so that Power BI deployed to the Power BI Server can pass the parameters the SQL Query behind when using Direct Query so that filtered results can be returned as well as using a parameter to deliver row level security via the query.

  20. Oauth in Power BI Report Server

    Hi Team

    As explained on the following link:

    https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Datasource-for-CRM-365-in-Power-BI-Report-Server-Unable-to/idc-p/636953#M39890

    Currently, PBI Report Server admins are unable set up data Datasources in power bi dashboards for connections to services such as CRM 365, and using organizational account.

    The idea is for the Report Server to very much mimic what's been done in the PBI Service and allow Oauth for users like us that have accounts in many services, CRM365, google Analytics, etc.

    Thanks!
