  1. Make it so you do not have to take over a dataset refresh.

    When configuring a refresh of a dataset, only the person who originally configured the refresh can see the settings. For someone else to take it over, you need to then enter all of the connection information in again. It would be nice to be able to see and modify this information without having to set it all up again.

  2. Activity Monitor Enterprise Gateway

    It would be very interesting to have the option to see the activity carried out through the gateway in the Power BI service, so that it can be seen in a simple way, the actions of updating the data sets that has been carried out from a gateway / connection, by way of the update history of the data sets but from the administration of the gateway.

    Regards

  3. Enable Paginated Reports to use a Gateway to connect to Azure SQL Instances

    Currently you can create a Gateway connection to an Azure SQL instance using an SQL type connection when the Gateway service is running on an appropriately configured VM. With a Paginated report you do not have the ability to chose this Gateway to connect to the data source but instead have to use a basic connection to connect directly to the Azure SQL instance. This does not work if the Azure SQL Instance does not allow Azure services to connect.

  4. Progress bar when refreshing datasets in Power BI Service

    It would be very useful to have a progress bar when refreshing a dataset in the Power BI Service interface.
    A step further would be to have the progress in general for the dataset and separately for each of the data sources in the dataset.

  6. Edit gateway connection

    The idea in short:

    1) We should be able to alter the server name used for a data source in the enterprise data gate way

    2) We should be able to choose other data sources of the same data source type when mapping data set data sources to enterprise gateway data sources

    BACKGROUND
    Today you can rename and change credentials for a data source in the enterprise data gateway, but you can not change the data source type nor the server it is pointing to. I can understand the limitation on changing data source type - but to be able…

  8. Enterprise Gateway - Active Directory Security Groups as Users

    In the gateway data source I am forced to add each user individually to allow them to create a report off that data source.
    Alternately I can create custom groups in o365.
    We have already established security groups on our system would it be possible for these groups to be used?
    This is an extra layer of security for hundreds of users that has already been solved through active directory synchronization with office 365.

    The use case is to add a security group or multiple group to be authorized to create reports off the data source. When we add or…

  16. On Premise Gateway Reading Proxy from Environment Variables

    Provide functionality for On Premise Gateway to read proxy from the environment variables setup on the server. In some scenarios, the direct ports are not opened within the organization and the only option to connect data source is through the https_proxy or http_proxy. Power BI Desktop is able to read these proxy from environment variable however, it fails for gateway.

  17. Can't delete Gateway Cluster after deleting all the instances

    Something went wrong
    We could not remove this gateway because it is the primary gateway within a cluster that has other gateway instances. Please remove other gateway instances from this cluster before removing the primary gateway.
    Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

  18. Manage an On-premises Data Gateway Cluster through REST API

    Using an Azure Logic App we currently verify data gateway availability before processing Analysis Services models. After moving to a high-availability gateway cluster, we want to check the availability of the cluster, not only the primary node. A REST API to manage the cluster would be very helpful.

  19. Service principal with Power BI and Data Gateway

    Currently the Service principal account cannot leverage the On-Premises Data Gateway since it is not a mail-enabled account. This prevents a Power BI Embedded solution to leverage an on-premises SSAS tabular model leveraging the service principal. Instead we need a full-blown power BI pro license for a service account. I would like the capability to leverage the data gateway added to the service principal Power BI authentication.
