  1. Dataflows from Custom SQL Query

    I would like to be able to create an entity based off of a custom SQL Query instead of having to use the Power Query tools. The problem I am having is that one of the tables I am working with is too large and results in a timeout when Dataflows tries to bring it in. I think that a custom SQL Query will alleviate this issue by allowing me to prefilter my data before it comes into Dataflows.

    • Allow duplicating tables as Aliases in relationship view

      When working with dimensional model, we have fact and dimension tables. In a fact table we have role-playing dimensions, e.g. multiple dates for one fact. We need to be able to import a date table once and then duplicate it in the relationship or anywhere else so that we can add a separate relationship from this newly duplicated table to the fact table.

      • On-Prem Teradata Connector for Dataflows

        We use Teradata for one of our Enterprise Data Warehouses. We would really like to have an On-Prem Teradata Connector available in Dataflows

        • Be able to refresh only 1 entity in Dataflows

          Would be great to have the option to refresh individual entities as an addition to the whole of the datapool. This is useful when some of the entities failed to refresh and other were successful.

          • Allow "certified datasources" Dataflows with certified entities to be rolled up for enterprise wide analytics

            Allow, once the tagging system is complete for "certified datasources", certified entities to be rolled up for enterprise wide analytics without having to manually hook up individual entities together.


            My company has many projects with different contract requirements, some of which require customer tools to be used. Being able allow the project the ability to ingest their own data using their unique tool on thier contract would be very helpful (datapools as they are now). Bringing those up automatically to the enterprise level would be even better.
