  1. Power BI API Hierarchical Data

    I've used the Power BI Desktop Hierarchical data feature. It is very powerful. I'd really like to be able to use it in a dataset that I've created via the API. Is this on the horizon?

  2. Power BI API column type "index"

    I use the API to post new rows to my tables. It would be excellent if I could have a column of type "Index" which would auto increment and pass back the index number in the response to the API post.

  3. Current Aug 2016 version don't support Dynamic lines in x and y axes, which works on measure . Thru this we can segregate the area in graph.

    I am working on Menu Engineering task and i have designed a good report which is showing me popularity% on y and Item profit on X axes , menu Er has 4 component, If an item is both profitable and popular then it’s a STAR. It it’s profitable but relatively unpopular then enter the word CHALLENGE. If the item is relatively unprofitable but popular then enter the word WORKHORSE. Finally, a DOG is an unprofitable and unpopular menu item, i want to segregate thru these dynamic line of X and Y Axes.

    We have been reviewing the Gateway subject with architecture and we have two questions that we need to make sure are clear so we can understand the complete concept and be able to proceed: 
    1. How does Power BI establish a secure connection with an intranet? 
    2. Is Gateway independently installed in a server inside the DMZ so that it can serve as a bridge between Power BI and BW?

    Thanks a Lot!

  6. Suppress web connector duplicate calls

    The web connector issues duplicate calls while accessing REST services for any service which takes longer wait time (e.g. more than 30 seconds), This behavior is not consistent for wait periods.

    Can you suppress duplicate calls and eventual timeouts.

  7. Filters

    The visualization functions, but it could be helpful if I could see and select also my filters!!! In this way I can only visualize the general situation, without the most important detail

  9. Allow users to assist in Ideas forum moderation

    There is a lot of old / duplicate content in the Ideas forum. Some should have been closed out a year ago, and others are duplicates with slightly different explanations. I would love to help recommend statuses for some of these ideas in order to clean up the forum.

  10. Multi-Tenant non AD Web Apps

    Power BI embedded: allow RLS based on User ID without AD. That is, let the app pass as a parameter the UID such that data will be filtered for that user only. Good for multi-tenant web based applications.

  12. Allow for collaborative authoring of reports and dashboards with service providers external to the organization

    We have a service provider who automates ETL and creates base reports and dashboards. Once this is done, we would like them to share the dashboard with users in our organization. Some power users within our organization should be allowed to make changes and add to the reports and dashboards.

  13. It would be nice if I could sign up for the service.

    When you try to sign up it tells me my email already exists and to sign in with it. After I sign in I am taken to a office page. With no way to sign up for Power BI. There is no for me to sign up for the service. There are also no options for any kind of support what so ever. This is a very bad first impression. I doubt anyone will read nor answer this. This is very frustrating.

  14. date range

    Having the ability to Create up to three date field segments on a chart or graph would be great. For example, showing historical data on an annual basis (Segment I); current and near-term data on a quarterly basis (Segment II); and forecasted data on an annual basis (Segment III).

  15. Change back the "drill all" function

    Over the recent months, the "drill all" feature has been changed and is terrible and needs changing back - or at least an option introduced to change it back if desired.

    When the user now selects "drill all" the axis changes and shows the previous layer drill broken in to the new layer instead of just the new layer but for all applicable data from the level above.
    For example;

    I have a chart that shows Week > Day > Shift (shift = AM, PM, EVE)

    Previously I was able to use the single drill to pick a particular week…

  17. Allow signins via personal email. Learning BI could help someone land a job!

    Why shut out people who are using personal email? Someone who is not employed, or who doesn't feel comfortable using a work email ID, is currently excluded from learning how to use Power BI. A lot of employers want people who have business intelligence/data visualization skills. Please give us access! I'm hoping people will keep posting and upvoting these requests.
