  5. AWS Athena

    Ability to connect to AWS Athena would be ideal. It is an excellent platform to manage large data while you are in the exploratory stages.

  6. Power BI Server in AWS

    Allow customers to install and run Power BI Server in an AWS environment.

    This would be a "local/on-prem" install - just in the AWS cloud. Right now, options are MS cloud or physically on-prem at your facility.

  7. Allow connection to AWS S3

    Since more and more customers are probably going to have hybrid environments with on-premises, Azure and AWS combined I think S3 connectivity would make sense too

  8. Is there a way to access AWS S3 file from Power BI?

    I have data files available in AWS S3 and I need to read and join them to generate reports in Power BI. Is there a direct or indirect way to read data from AWS S3?

  9. Zoom and pan is awful

    On ios when trying to zoom in and then move (pan) the report the experience is just awful. It gets stuck and just ’bounces’, it zooms in on the wrong place etc etc. Please make it feel smooth like any other ios app.

  10. Hi, why we are unable to publish Power BI reports in AWS?.

    we would like to publish PBI reports on the existing AWS so that internal users can access the PBI reports with single sign on. Is there any option to publish Power Bi reports on AWS? if yes, please let me know how to publish

  11. Enable support for AWS S3 as a data source

    I find PowerBI to be a great tool for processing Logs and billing information from AWS which typically lie in their S3 buckets. Currently we end up downloading the data and processing it. It would be great if we can access the same from the S3 bucket directly using the AWS access key and secret key.

    Improve the embedding into websites process... how is it so difficult to get an embed code! The documentation is awful

  20. Be able to customise the chart are and legend area to avoid truncation

    Curently the auto allocation of space to the legend and the chart area means that text is truncated. That's an awful experience
