  1. SAP Business Warehouse connector include SAP router string

    My organisation only allows connectivity to the SAP BW system (or any SAP system) using the SAP router string. It would be beneficial to allow this type of connectivity rather than just providing the application server.

    • Custom Connector as a Portable Library of Functions

      Currently, a custom connector requires a Data Source and a Authentication record associated to a function in order to be Published or exposed in the 'Get Data' dialog/window.
      This is perfectly fine for data sources, but if I want to create a custom connector that creates data using native M functions, like. List.Generate or List.Dates, then I shouldn't have to define a Data Source nor an Authentication which complicates things and is an unnecessary step for the end user.

      • Adobe Analytics Connector Supported in Power BI Service

        When I go to my report's Dataset in Power BI Service, I can see "AdobeAnalytics" listed as a Data Source.

        When I click "Edit credentials", the Authentication Method drop-down is empty and clicking sign-in just returns the error "Failed to update data source credentials".

        Please enable refreshing reports using Adobe Analytics from within the service. Thank you.

                  • Open document

                    I would like the ability to connect to .ODS (open document spread sheet) sources from the web, I can open the files on this webpage: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/fire-statistics-data-tables#incident-level-datasets in Excel and it converts them but when trying to connect to this type of file directly in Power BI Desktop I receive the following error: DataFormat.Error: External table is not in the expected format.

                    • Snowflake connector should not require On-Premises gateway

                      Connecting to snowflake is great in Development.
                      It did require a download of the ODBC connector. Is there a way, that we could have this baked in when publishing the report, otherwise I need to do this locally and then publish, or establish an On-Prem gateway.

                      I would really love if Snowflake connections did not require an On-Premises gateway

                            • SharePoint Online Schedule Refresh

                              Allow SharePoint Online connections in Power BI online to have a scheduled refresh. Currently, only manual refresh is allowed.
                              This would allow easy data input to sharepoint and up-to-date output in BI online.

                                      • Connector to us bank

                                        I would like to encrypt my credentials in Power BI Service and schedule a refresh of all of the transactions related to my us bank accounts. This is a bit tricky since us bank offers several layers of security challenges, but it would save me a great amount of time if I could schedule a refresh of transactions for ALL of my accounts.

                                          Although there is now a solution template for connecting to twitter, the fact that this is part of Azure means that it is not feasible for all users.
                                          Can there be a simple connector that does not use Azure to give you the simple level of analytics that you get when you sign in to Twitter analytics around number of followers and tweet reach and impressions. Do not need the sentiment analysis. Like the google analytics connector
