  1. 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).

  2. Denodo Direct Query in Power BI Report Server

    Denodo Direct Query has been available in Power BI Server but not Power BI Report Server yet. Can we make this feature also available in PBI RS?

  3. 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.

  4. DirectQuery web service connector

    Provide a DirectQuery connector to query a Web Service API. To feed the connector, the web service would need to implement methods for querying (obviously) with filtering, grouping and sorting the resultset. Additional methods would be exposing the data model for discovery.

    Such a web service would open the door to many scenarios that are not based directly on an underlying data store: on-the-fly data feeds, custom rule-based data protection, backend application logic and transformations, DB-less systems etc.

  6. modifying the data source path in a custom connector

    I would like to raise an enhancement request for the extension data source path in a custom connector to be able to be modified by the connector, rather than be hard-coded, based on the non-optional parameters.

    We have a corporate REST API which we would like reported through Power BI. This is a typical API which allows access to datasets via urls like:

    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'AUSTRALIA'
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'USA'&top=100
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'UK'
    https://api.company.com/customers?filter=country eq 'CHINA'

    We require this API to be accessible to Power BI. The built-in web connector is not suitable as it would require too much manipulation of…

  8. Selected Columns list to give expanded fields as well

    Currently onSelectedColumns gives only top level fields.

    It is common for REST APIs not to return all fields and only return initially hidden fields if specifically asked for. If not asked for then you get "null" in those fields, usually because they are not actually in the response, but the connector has code to enforce the schema.

    onSelectedColumns gets passed a list of fields so this can be used to modify the REST call to ask for the selected fields and so the hidden ones can then be populated.

    REST calls can return nested structures and the schema can support…

  10. Simple Semantic Layer Support for Schema in Custom Connectors

    A simple Semantic Layer support could be incorporated in Power BI by having Power Query use a shared function in the Connector of:

    getLocalization(<type name>, <field or entity name>, Optional <locale>) returns text

    Power Query would check if the function exists and if it does then for the Navigation Table the localized version of the Entity names would be got using getLocalization(null, <entity name>) and names of fields in the types would be got by using getLocalization(<type name>, <field name>). If the function does not exist or it returns null or an empty string then use the unlocalized version of…

  11. Custom Connectors should offer the possibility to get authenticated username

    A very usefull feature would be if the m-language would allow to get the username of the currently logged in user in the Power BI service to implement Row Level Security for DirectQuery datasources. A corresponding issue was originally raised at github https://github.com/Microsoft/DataConnectors/issues/182 .

    This request would allow all custom connector authors to see if this can be handled in their source.

  12. Radius (CRM) Connector

    Many higher ed. orgs utilize non-Microsoft CRM products from Campus Management. It would be great to have a fluid/pre-built connector to link those products (E.g. Radius) to Power BI.

  14. Separate pop-up window with details to open when a specific event is clicked.

    I have a requirement from a client in which he wants me to design a Power BI Report with Popups. Once Tooltips are added to the field, hovering over a data point on the visualization shows the values for those fields in the Tooltip. But the information goes off once you remove the cursor from that field. Do we have a functionality in which if I click a field, a popup should be open and it should remain frozen till the time I do not click in/out of the window again?

  15. Ability to install custom connectors in Power BI web service (for scheduled refresh)

    Need the ability to install custom connectors in Power BI web service (for scheduled refresh). In our case it is difficult to migrate away from our incumbent BI in MicroStrategy without the ability to integrate the two for a period. We can only install the MicroStrategy custom connector in Power BI desktop but can't publish the models online to refresh - a bit of a problem when we have the premium PBI service!

  18. Exchange Online Connector Meeting responses

    In the current exchange online connector is it not possible to retrieve response status of the people invited to a meeting, this would be very helpful and useful to track meeting series and acceptance/ participation.
