  3. Create a connector directly to the instance of analysis services running under Power BI/Excel

    When you are running Power BI or Excel with a data model, there is an instance of Analysis Services running on your machine. You can connect to this using the standard Analysis Services connector, but figuring our the port number on localhost to connect to is hard, and it changes every time you run it, so you can not just refresh this connection. Create a custom connector that will always reliably connect to this instance.

    Use cases:
    1)I want to incrementally add data to my model vs refresh it entirely.
    2)I want to analyse differences between what was loaded from…

  4. Data connector plugin issue.

    Most of time we do not have internet access on server to install data connector plugin. All plugin should be available in package. All third party plugin support should be available. Currently for teradata i need separate installation and so on.

  5. Power Query / M support for loading STDOUT of scripts/exes as a refresh-able data source.

    It would be very handy to support running an exe or script, and grabbing its output (stdout and stderr) as a refresh-able data source in Power Query/M. I have several instances today where I run PowerShell scripts, redirect output to a file, and then load the file into a data model with Power Query / M. This feature would allow me to skip the intermediate step.

    Estou a 3 horas tentando conectar o power bi ao meu banco mysql 5.1 e nada.
    Quero apresentar ao um cliente, mas o software não oferece uma interface fácil de conexão com base de dados, podia ser mais fácil e ja sugerir as versões dos bancos ao informar qual o meu banco mysql, o software ja devia trazer os drivers odbc ou ... para aquela versão e conectar.
