  2. Graph Databases

    PowerBI should be able to talk to Graph Databases like graphDB and CosmosDB, by directly using graph queries from the query editor and compiling it into a table

  4. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. Create a Presto connector to support on Premises use-cases

    As of day, the current QuBole connector does not support connection to a Presto cluster on premises.
    Is there a possibility to integrate one in the roadmap?

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Connector to access custom list and custom user field

    Without the proprietary solution Service, only the default Project Site lists and default columns (i.e. Risks, Issues, Deliverables) are accessible by Power BI using OData connector.
    Customers of Microsoft PPM solution will create custom list for Assumptions, dependencies, Change Request, Benefits register etc and will create custom user fields.
    To access these custom fields and custom lists, customers either have to buy 3rd part proprietary solution or using XML connector / REST API - this requires making changes (finding ID of the custom fields, then using this etc) - Power BI needs to have a custom connector so the custom…

  19. 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.
