  2. Dremio/Power BI Service Support SSO through DirectQuery

    Dremio serves as our corporate data as a service platform, Power BI Desktop with Dremio works fine but in order for our users to use PowerBI Service we need Power BI to support SSO connections for Dremio. We are looking for SSO (Pass through) connectivity from PowerBI Service to Dremio. Use of an on-premise Gateway would require a single service account and will not work due to limiting security access controls to our data. Please consider adding this support for Dremio.

    Dremio should be included with these SSO DirectQuery sources(bottom of page).

  3. Quicken (.QIF) Import Data Connectivity Support

    It would be great if you could support Quicken (.QIF) as a data type and add a connector so that Quicken data updates power BI automatically. Currently I have to download my quicken transactions to an excel file, manipulate the file, and then load to power BI. It's extremely inefficient.

  4. Allow SSO from Power BI Service to Denodo

    Currently a fix credential is used to configure connectivity from Denodo connector in Data Gateway to Denodo Server. It is not able to capture login user in Power BI service and allow pass through down to Denodo Server so that only authorized rows/dataset is return. Please work on this ASAP as we want to leverage the row level data access control built in Denodo centrally rather than recreating at Power BI level.

  5. Impala Request Pool Needed

    When a Cloudera Hadoop platform is shared between multiple on-premise tenants, the PowerBI Desktop report should use a specific request pool(Request_pool) to execute any SQL.

    The user needs to pass “SSPREQUESTPOOL=abcpool” as part of a connection string or execute initially “set REQUEST_POOL= abcpool;” statement for every session.

    Can you modify the Impala Connector to allow for a Request Pool option?

  7. Enable Custom Connectors to explicitly declare table relationships

    When building a custom connector table relationships are known ahead of time. However there is no way to declare table relationships so they can be imported. This leaves users having to fix up the relationships manually.

    I propose the following options:


    • The ability to add foreign keys to a table

    • Or the ability export table relationships (along with the Navigation table).

    There are some pre-existing discussions on GitHub, as the documentation attempts to provide an example of doing this. However the sample code does not actually address this issue (because the approach is flawed, and it's not actually possible).

  8. Pass-through SQL functions

    Power BI does not currently provide the ability to run pass thru SQL functions on data, but Tableau does. Pass thru functions allow the ability to run SQL operations directly on the database without the operation being interpreted by the BI service.

  9. Custom Data Connector parameters

    Need support for parameters for a Custom Data Connector; currently such a connector is usable only in Desktop but won't work in Web Service. Is essential to implement Incremental Refresh, as Desktop sees a Data Connector as a non-foldable query

  11. Ability to create custom connectors written in Python

    Python is a versatile programming language for API calls and data manipulation. It would be great to be able to create Custom connectors written in Python instead of Power Query M Formula Language.

  12. Fix Teradata connection link so that parameters can be added for connection

    Power BI can't connect to our enterprise Teradata system because (1) There's no place to put in the Data Source (not talking about the Server). (2) There's no place to put in the mechanism (LDAP). And, (3) There's no place to put in the port number. Not sure why you market this product as Teradata compatible, but is very misleading since it doesn't even have a place for the parameters to be entered.

  13. Poderia ter um link diretamente na parte de Graficos do Excel, que direcionasse a abertura para a criação de gráficos no PBI para conversão

    Poderia ter um link diretamente na parte de Graficos do Excel, que direcionasse a abertura para a criação de gráficos no PBI para conversão no word e vice versa. Para apresentação offline em lugares que só tem excel.

  20. Pass user context to data virtulization layer like Denodo or data warehouse OBIEE

    We are creating a massive reporting platform where we need to pass user context to data virtualization layer, when can we have this feature avail, it is limiting us to use RLS when we have all security features available in virtualization layer.
