  1. Gateway Data Source Ordering

    Currently, the data sources under the data gateway don't have any order. Could you sort them at least by the name? It's hard to work with multiple data sources when they are spread randomly on the list.

  2. 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.

  4. Gateway update triggered by BI Service

    The version of the gateway (on-premise or personal) should be able to update itself, automatically or with a click from the Power BI Service online.

  7. Disable End Users from Installing/Configuring Personal Gateways

    As a Power BI administrator I don't want end users installing and configuring Personal Gateways. Please can an option be created to restrict who can install and configure Gateways.

  8. Don't make me click through Gateway Connection to get to Data Source Credentials

    When trying to set Data Source Credentials for Datasets, I'm first forced to click to open Gateway Connections. After that opens up, then I'm able to click for Data Source Credentials.

    Instead, just allow users to click to Data Source Credentials.

  10. 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.

  14. Application automatic update when reports are updated via gateway

    Today, when automatically updating a report via gateway, the application containing the report is not refreshed. It would be greatly apprieciated if an automatic update of the application could be done.

  17. 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.

  20. Should have an Option to make a copy of Existing Gateway to test when to Move Gateways to Other Server.

    We are deploying gateway to new servers to replace existing. To ensure a smooth transition, we need to replicate existing gateways configuration (data sources - db type, server, port, credentials) in advance to mitigate risk and validate.
