  1. Power BI Report Server: Passing forms user name to customdata when using Forms Authentication

    We use Custom (Forms) Authentication for Power BI Report Server, however both UserPrincipalName and UserName functions always return the service account running the Report Server, hence row-level-security does not work on Power BI reports published to the server.
    Passing forms user name to customdata would allow RLS to work on publsihed Power BI reports.

  4. Add ability to import themes in PowerBI Desktop Optimized for Report Server

    With the regular desktop version (not optimized for Report Server), I was allowed to import color Themes. This is useful b/c I could load my companies colors to the desktop and all my visuals take on the colors themes I imported. I'm requesting this feature be added to the Desktop optimized for Report Server.

  6. Turn off Commenting on PowerBI Report Server

    A system property to turn off commenting functionality within Power BI Report Server. Similar to ShowDownloadMenu=False.

    With over 1000 users connecting to our PBIRS instance commenting functionality is unworkable at a per report level.

  7. Power BI JavaScript API support for Report Server

    At the moment to embed reports in a intranet webpage we only have the option to put ?rs:Embed=True at the end of the url.

    I have read (on this website) that there are plans to extend this so parameters could also be passed in the url, in a similar way that the current SSRS works.

    Could we also have the Power BI JavaScript API enabled for Power BI Report Server, in a similar way to the Azure service has ?

    Thanks for submitting this idea! Others, chime in with your votes and comments here.

  8. Visual Studio SSDT style report deployment of Power BI files to Power BI Report Server

    Many of us using Power BI Report Server are doing so because the Power BI Service is not an option, and the typical BI development process requires the use of TFS or some other source control tool to manage our environments. Those who create RDL-based/paginated reports are very comfortable with the Visual Studio, SSDT deployment process. Power BI Report Server is out of sync with that process, as there is currently no way to trigger a new Power BI report creation from within Visual Studio, and no integrated method of deploying Power BI reports or PBI Template to PBI Report…

  11. PBIRS Add buttons for Fit to Width/Page/Actual Size/Percentage to right of status bar

    In PowerBI Reporting Services, a bar appears along the bottom which lists the pages / tabs. To the right of this bar, could a menu button be added which gives a choice of scaling the page: "Fit to Width", "Fit to Page", and possibly a few other zoom percentage sizes (50, 75, 100, 125, 150).

  12. Customize Order of Fields in Filter Pane

    The current filters pane on the right hand side of the Power BI UI automatically sorts the filters in alphabetical order.

    We need to be able to customize the order the fields appear in these filter panes.

  13. report server powerapp

    Allow PowerApps visuals to be used inside Power BI Report Server.

    We currently have several PowerApps visuals that work in the Power BI service and then break once we move the report to Report Server.

  15. Allow users to save multiple filter presets on the Power BI Service

    Persistent filters was a great step forward, but it would be even better if users on the Power BI service could preserve multiple "presets." In other words, they could save their current filter settings as a type of bookmark just for them, and then they could retrieve previously used filter settings. This would be really helpful for users who may have a couple of different ways they like to look at things.

  17. All the features ( Usage Metrics, Version History, Shared Datasource, etc...) of Service should available to PBI report Server

    Most of the clients still using On-Premise instead of Power BI Service. If we get all the advanced features (Usage Metrics, Version History, Shared Data Source, etc..) available in Service to Report Server, It would be great to the clients who prefer On-Premise.

  18. SSRS Style Parameters are vital for optimised Power BI Reports

    The way report parameters work in SSRS means we can have reports that load quickly and are optimised.

    Currently with Power BI we are presented with the solution to use slicers on the report, however that doesn't cut it when we have a lot of data in the back end it just isn't responsive and we have excruciating load times.

    Not having this feature is a deal breaker, and we cannot switch from SSRS to Power BI because of it.

  19. Change user language setting in the report server

    I want to force to model to use English language for large values that represent in the model with shortcuts "M" and "K" (Millions,Thousands), but instead in some computers the browser display I get is in English and other in our local language.
    It would be very helpful if we can change the language setting for each user in the report server ,just like we do in the Power BI service.
