  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.

  7. Synchronize row selection with filters (from slicers and from filter pane).

    When you select a row, we wish that the filters displays show only the value from this row.

  8. TEAMS CONNECTOR

    We need to connect Power BI to several Teams in order to create a single report. That report will get the data from several Excel workbooks, each workbook is on a different Teams. And the workbooks have many sheets.
    This will be a great and critical improvement to establish an automation and have the dashboard report always updated and available to Board needs.
    P.S. Already had a meeting (Teams call) with your support/ troubleshooting level and right now it is not possible to establish that connection.

  11. Update for Power BI Publisher - Excel

    Power BI Publisher add-in last update was during November 2017. Due to no further updates, using this add-in we cannot connect to the new workspaces.

    Only the classic workspaces can be accessed through this add-in. As shown in the screenshot below – Only classic workspaces are visible.

    An update for this such that the new workspaces can be accessed through Power BI publisher would be great.

    P.S - Though there is an option of Analyse in Excel. I think it would be better to have this option as well.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. WITS Level0

    WELLSITE INFORMATION TRANSFER SPECIFICATION (WITS) level0 is an industry standard data communication format used extensively in the oil and gas industry. At level0 it operates as a fixed format ASCII data stream transmitted by either serial or network.
    Although WITS Level0 is communication format and not a database, being able to stream data directly into Power BI, I believe would deliver a huge amount of benefits in the offshore O&G industry world wide.

  16. Boton Flotante

    Tener la opcion de un boton flotante. Cuando se tiene un reporte de un tamaño de 1268 x 1750. Se quisiera que los filtros salieran de un marcador que los oculta y los muestra como un nuevo slicer, con esto se ahorra espacio y hay mejor espacio para graficas, el problema es que el botón del marcador queda o en la parte de arriba o en la parte de abajo. Un boton flotante que apareciera en algun momento quedaria bien

  18. Essbase Connector - ability to override the name of the Measures dimension

    Depending on the Essbase database you are connecting to, the Measures may be on a different dimension that "[Measure]".

    In particular, PeopleSoft GL Cubes have all the measures on the Account dimension.

    ie: this is the automatic query generated
    WITH MEMBER [Measures].[Microsoft.Mashup.Engine.One] AS '1'
    SELECT

    NON EMPTY{
    
    [Measures].[Microsoft.Mashup.Engine.One]
    }ON 0,
    NON EMPTY GENERATE(
    DISTINCT(
    [Account].Levels(1).ALLMEMBERS
    ),
    DESCENDANTS(
    [Account].CURRENTMEMBER,
    [Account].Levels(13),
    LEAVES
    )
    )
    PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME ON 1

    FROM [GL01.GL01] CELL PROPERTIES VALUE

    This means that when PowerBI attempts to create a calculated Member on the Measure dimension, it returns an error and you cannot browse the cube in Live mode.

  20. Add a slicer "Node" on top of the report, near Feature, Release, Module

    Would be useful to have a slicer to allow filtering on a node like "CP-RT", CP-UE", etc as it is possible for feature, sub feature, module...
