  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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. User based visuals

    My software team currently consumes data from the tools we use everyday to help with identifying issues in our processes. It recently came up that we would like to see our own team member performance in comparison to a team wide average, but without the ability to see each other individually (to avoid negative motivations).

    It seems like this would be possible as a Premium feature (maybe not only Premium) if the dataset required an additional table of Power BI userIds with a relationship to user identifiers in other tables. It would also open up another realm of opportunities for…

  13. Admin access at Workspace Level

    I have created a workspace on premium capacity of my organization.

    Need a way to restrict other power BI users to download the .pbix file from service.
    Need a way to restrict other Pro users to publish the reports into the workspace.
    Need a way to find and download multiple versions of the reports to track history of changes recently published on a report.

  15. Premium metrics - Aggregate data across capacities

    This idea comes from the Power BI Unconference session at Microsoft Ignite 2019.

    The Power BI Premium metrics app currently shows data for a single capacity. Data should be aggregated across multiple capacities.

  17. 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.

  18. Pin visuals from App/Report without pro licence

    Most users in our organisation cannot create a dashboard made by pinning visuals from an app/report. We had originally envisaged used being able to filter a variety of wide-ranging reports and create their own dashboard by pinning their "favourite" visuals to it.

  19. Make accesible the raw data from Power BI premium capacity metrics

    We would need to extend the Capacity Metrics dataset to generate custom reports with additional information, and applying RLS to share the info to the business users which own each workspace. As for now, the dataset can't be modified.
