  4. 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.

  6. Security/Data Driven visibility- Show/Hide report elements/pages based on Security

    I have a SSAS Tabular model and a PBI dashboard that has a live connection on this model.

    What I want to accomplish is hide/show buttons/bookmarks based on security and data inside the SSAS tabular model.
    I don't think this is possible in PBI bookmarks now but it would be a key feature.

    This feature is actually blocking us from going Prod.

  8. Connect to multiple salesforce accounts within the same power bi workspace

    I have multiple reports in Power Bi. Each connects to a separate Salesforce domain/org/account. I would like to be able to set up auto refresh for these reports. However, at present, the refresh errors out each week because it only cache's the most recent credentials for Salesforce. Please allow for multiple Salesforce connections in Power Bi.

  10. 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!

    Is it too much to ask that Microsoft provide their user community with a roadmap of planned features for Power BI Report Server.

  19. 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.

  20. Analyize in Excel for Report Server

    Please add the option to Analyize in Excel for Report Server.
    Many users need to slice and dice the data using the pivot with the connection to SSAS cubes. If my model is in PowerBI, without SQL tabular cube - there is no option to analyze it with Excel.
    You've already implemented such feature in the Service.
    Please do it for Report Server also
    Thank you
