  2. Real time monitoring of premium capacity

    Like to have the capability to view following metrics on premium capacity nodes in real-time, instead of waiting for premium capacity monitoring app to get refreshed before showing the latest data.


    1. CPU and RAM usage

    2. Scheduled reports list in running and waiting state

    3. All DQ based reports in execution state

    4. Number of active user sessions using premium apps

  3. Power BI Premium license for Developers

    Add simple hourly based Premium license for developers to try new features and be able to support customers when they buy it.

    Another option would be to provide a paid subscription with a limit of hours per month.

    As we all know that Premium has the similar back-end as for Embedded capacity. So it can be possible to implement.

  4. wants to restrict/control the "Unpublish App" for better control over the APP.

    wants to restrict/control the "Unpublish App" for the developers for better control over the APP. Developer have Member access to workspace v1/V2 but also want the Update App option open for them.

    Question : Is this something in Raodmap or can consider this as Design change request ?

  5. make premium capacities pay-as-you-go model and scale as needed.

    wondering if premium capacities can be made pay-as-you-go model, along with scaling option
    similar to what your peer service teams are doing in Azure..

    At our organization we only need higher premium capacity during high refresh rates on certain times of day, would certainly not like to purchase an entire capacity and keep it idle for most part of the day.

  6. Power BI pro to have same features Premium has

    As original premium whitepaper said, premium supposed to tackle large enterprise deployment and large number of 'readers'; therefore, pro to have the same features provided by premium; and premium to offer better performance or licensing combo offer. [e.g. we have over 450 e5 licenses with power bi pro but less functionalities.

  7. Provide an access to Power BI Premium Configuration and Log File

    Please provide a read only access to config and log files which can be used to provide directions on performance tuning and the future capacity upgrade plans. This can also be used to benchmark against the on prem SSAS environment.

  8. Images in Paginated Reports with Authentication

    Ensure that it is possible for the credentials of the one accessing the paginated report can be passed to bring an image into the paginated report.

    Use case: Designs - the Power BI report will show what designs are being worked on and where they are in terms of development timelines etc... A basic image file (png) is kept of where the design actually is at present this should only be accessible to the project team, but they can be asked to present progress reports to senior management who want to see not just the information about the design but…

  9. Hide report list in full screen

    When you open a report "full screen" in a premium app it still shows the report list down the left hand side. We need an option to hide this as it completely changes the look of reports.

    When you open the report in the workspace rather than the app it opens in 'proper' full screen with no report list.

  10. Combined Nbr or refreshes/Nbr of queries & memory usage over time in capacity metrics

    It is good to see nbr of refreshes over time and nbr of queries over time but memory consumption is a result of both. Hence, a combined report in the capacity metrics app would give a good idea about moments where lots of refreshes are going on AND lots of querying is going on AND memory consumption is high.

    I created such report and it helped us a lot in 'moving' refreshes to more 'quiet' moments. I'm sure it can help other premium admins as well.

  11. Live connection to an Analysis Services XMLA

    Datasets with a Live connection to an Analysis Services models are not accessible by using XMLA endpoints.

    i.e. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-premium-connect-tools#unsupported-datasets

    This should be supported in my opinion, is this going to be addressed in the future?

  13. More Affordable Premium Nodes

    With XMLA endpoints coming to PBI Premium, this licensing model is becoming very relevant to a lot of smaller organizations and ISVs for whom the dedicated capacity is not necessarily the main selling point for upgrading from Pro licences.
    The option for a premium subscription at a more affordable tier -- with reduced capacity -- would be a great help to all users trying to convince management to make the investment.

  15. at least 100 testing threads PowerBI-Tools-For-Capacities/LoadTestingPowerShellTool

    Hello everybody.

    For the moment the load testing tool for premium capacities
    https://github.com/microsoft/PowerBI-Tools-For-Capacities/tree/master/LoadTestingPowerShellTool
    works only with less than 10 concurrent threads on a single machine.

    It would be convenient to have the ability to improve the tool to work with 100 concurrent threads. Thank you.

  16. RDL Paginated reports and Publish to Web

    Please enable end users to easily share RDL by enabling Publish to Web for paginated reports created with Power BI Report Builder?

    Since placing an RDL onto the workspace is already restricted to Premium subscribers only, it would be helpful to enable end users to share RDL or paginated reports publicly themselves without needing .NET developer.

  17. Incremental Refresh Detect data changes have different schedules for [short]] period and all data

    Say you have 5 years of data in your model

    Currently you have new records and data changes so we set the model to process the last years data and detect changes Using LastUpdatedate in our data

    This is all great but very occasionally, there may be a data change outside of the years worth of updates

    the question is, how do you deal with this? I Dont want to be updating the entire models data set when updates to older data doesnt happen that often. BUT, if it does happen, we want to reflect it in the model

    Could…

  18. Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder

    Enable subreports in Power BI Report Builder. Currently, subreports functionality is not enable for Paginated reports in the Power BI Service. This is a common request from our users to design reports that emulate the subreporting functionality they are used to in SSRS

  20. Pinning Datasets to Memory

    In the current state, the Power BI service will evict a dataset from memory if it needs to free up memory for other datasets and if the dataset is relatively idle (not being queried or refreshed). Teams should be able to exclude certain datasets from this behavior to ensure these datasets will always be in memory and thus refreshes and queries will not encounter delays due to loading the dataset back into memory.
