    • Connector for SQLite

      SQLite is one of the most used Database Management Systems in the World! I think it would be important to have a specific connector for SQLite, especially since I had problems trying to connect Power BI to SQLite via ODBC.

        • 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.

            • Please Open Source All Default Power BI Connectors

              Please open source all default Power BI M connectors!

              Aside from a few examples on Github, there's very few examples to learn from. I've developed several connectors and I still have no idea if I'm following best practice or not. Also, there's many features I've seen in current connectors that are not publicly available, e.g., radio buttons on user prompts.

                • Live/DirectQuery Web Connector

                  The Web connector has a lot of nice scraping functionality behind it, but when using it with a REST API, it becomes less useful. Now with the addition of composite models, it would be AWESOME to allow a web API to dynamically fetch results based on filters from another table (an imported data source for slicers, etc). This would really open up a host of possibilities with Power BI, as it could be used as a front-end for many more analytics that are API-based.

                                  • 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.

                                    Here are 2 videos showcasing 2 functions that do not need any sort of authentication, but due to the way custom…

                                    • 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

                                        • 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.
