  1. Ease of Use for ADLS Gen 2 Connector

    I've given my client a bit of time to work with the ADLS G2 and Power BI and the feedback I'm getting from several of the users involved all comes down to the same issue. This is concerning the view the user gets of the data lake store when then are working through the 'get data' routine using the new connector for ADLS Gen2 2. They all want to see a hierarchical folder structure presented them as it is in Explorer on their own machines or in the Azure Storage Explorer. The data lake they are working with has a…

  2. Extend Shared Dataset / Data Model

    Shared datasets is a very powerful tool that we are beginning to use in our organization. We want our users to leverage a shared dataset as much as possible when building their reports. However, if the user wants to add an entity or two to the data model, they can only do that by requesting it to be added to the base model.

    I propose a feature where a user could "extend" an existing data model from a shared dataset that would only impact their version, or view of the model, leaving the original model intact and unchanged.

    Py2neo

    Also please add the following R packages from the CRAN Library:

  7. Renaming a field should update all references across model

    In the data model, when a field is renamed, you must manually update all references to the field across all formulas. Power BI ought to manage propagation of that name update across the model.

    Be able to read environment variables from the current machine (Power BI Desktop) either through a dedicated data source, or a built-in function that is equivalent to environ() in VBA or getenv() in java.

  11. OData.Feed should support entity bound function with same name as property

    Microsoft case 119083024001340 was filed for an issue causing a failure in OData.Feed when reading valid OData metadata.

    Microsoft Product Group agreed there is an issue but will not fix it unless there is sufficient votes.

  14. Windows Authentication in Amazon Redshift connector

    Currently Amazon Redshift connector comes with Database Authentication mechanism only. We would like to have Windows Authentication in it, like with other connectors. This helps in security of data and allowing SSO from Power BI Desktop.

  15. Easy way to see which files are in your data sources

    If you want to see which data sorces are being used to drive a pbix file (excel sheets, sql database tables, etc.) you have to look into the advanced editor code. There is currently no quick way to see those files except going through each sources advanced editor one by one. Please make an option on the ribbon under data sources to see the names of all excel sheets, databases tables etc. that make up the report.

  20. Why would you take away the ServiceNow content pack before replacing it with a new app? Why? Microsoft? Could you be more unhelpful?
