  1. Impala - overwriting default values (i.e. for certificate used and service name)

    Currently Power BI exposes only minimal set of options for connecting to impala servers. Most of the connection parameters are default values. - this is an information from Microsoft Support while troubleshooting Impala connectivity issue.

    It would be helpful to have a possibility to specify the location of custom .pem file and to overwrite the service name so it can be different from the default one ("impala").

  2. Perform partial refresh in PowerBI

    We have report that pulls data from many data sources and build multiple charts. When there is issue with retrieving data from any sources, automated refresh fails for all charts in the report, even though some of the chart doesn't have dependency on the failed data source. PowerBI should be able to perform partial refresh successfully in such cases instead of refresh failures for all charts in the report.

  3. Allow direct access to the subfolder of the OndeDrive for Business or Personal OneDrive.

    Through the ability to connect to a Sharepoint Folder, we can connect Power BI to the OneDrive for Business root folder. This is excellent and very important, but insufficient. Most projects require that files be organized in subfolders, to which direct access is not allowed. There are ways to do this, but they are not efficient. I suggest that the solution be enhanced to allow direct access to the subfolders located in the root folder of OneDrive For Business or even Personal OneDrive, just as you can with folders and their subfolders located in Drive C on the desktop or…

  4. Dynamic Query/Filter Options for Odata Sources

    Can we get option with dynamic query and filters with odata ?

    We have created PowerBI reports connecting multiple odata sources . the usage is getting restricted due to lack support for dynamic queries. Challenge is we need to bring whole data for filter upfront which is huge , we can not have separate report for each filter option

  6. Monitor Microsoft Flow on Dashboard

    Add a built-in connector/dashboard to Microsoft Flow within PowerBI to monitor flow performance and failures so all integrations and performance can be monitored in a single place.

  10. Allow a user to select items from a parameter

    Allow the user to choose, from a parameter drop down a server they ewant to look at. The parameter either populated from a list or query, and the datasource changed accordingly, (the last bit I can do).

    It would be great to add this feature, you cannot really allow users access to the desktop versin, you want them to use the server versin, but it is really tough if you cannot use a parameter to drive what the user sees.

  13. Extend the ArcGIS map visual to map LSOA’s and MSOA’s using the UK country and Census Areas boundary options.

    Currently the ArcGIS map visual will use the UK census area codes from the Office of National Statistics to join Output Areas (OA’s) to data in a table.

    Census Output Areas are a very granular geography and are often too detailed for analytics and dashboards. The ability to use this function with a more generalised geography would be helpful. The areas that are required are called Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs) and Middle Super Output Areas (MSOA’s).

  15. About Directly Editing Parameter Values in a Dataset Using Odata.

    The data set is generated from Dynamics using odata.
    The query is filtered using parameters. Changing and saving parameter values in a dataset on the Power BI portal does not rewrite the parameter values.
    I want you to be able to change the values directly in the portal without changing the values of the parameters in Power BI Desktop and repositioning them.

  17. Allow to connect to multiple Power BI Services Data sources

    I have different data sources published in my workspace, for efficiency purposes I would like to be able to connect to several data sources to create new dashboards, this will also allow users to create their own dashboard without having to create new and duplicate data source in the workspace.

  20. Keep/Allow Hierarchy Filters (in Excel) in Direct Query Mode

    When accessing power-bi data with excel, existing hierarchy filters are also usable in Excel. This does apply for manual created hierarchy filters as well as with automated hierarchy filters (e.g. in Dates).

    However this feature is not working as soon as you have at least one table with direct query mode. In this case all hierarchy filters are gone.
    Therefore the request is, that also in direct query mode the hierarchy filters should be available (at least for the tables still in import mode).

    Besides this current behaviour should be documented.
