  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. mulitple entries in gateway for the same database

    It would be useful to be able to mulitple entries in gateway for the same database because the access level may be different. We have one database and multiple schemas for our warehouse and we do not want to expose all schemas.

  7. 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.

  8. Make Azure VM scaleset image available for powerBI gateway

    Our entire organization reports depend on single enterprise gateway and at time the load increases to maximum, triggering us to add a new node manually.

    this manual node is waste of time to monitor manually and take down to reduce costs, when not in use.

    if you start supporting azure vm scalesets, this would provide following benefits
    -> auto scale on load
    -> reduce costs with scale down options

  10. 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 httpsproxy or httpproxy. Power BI Desktop is able to read these proxy from environment variable however, it fails for gateway.

  11. when a gateway refresh fails email gateway administrators

    Currently when a refresh fails only the owner of the report/dataset is sent an email to let them know.
    An email should also be sent to the enterprise gateway administrators so they are aware of the failure.

  17. Feature to disable connection in Power BI Gateway

    In Power BI gateway we have available features to add and remove connection; but we do not have anything like enable/disable. However a feature to be able to disable connection will be helpful when resetting/changing password in a connection. Or sometime we want to hold a particular database to be accessed from Power BI when some maintenance activity is in progress in that database. So it would be helpful if we can control the connectivity to different sources in the gateway using disable/enable.

  18. Enterprise Gateway - schedual refresh on an interval for SQL

    Instead of selecting specific time slot for when to update, it would be faster to just select refresh every x hour.
    Also In the setup there is right now I have a gateway that starts to update a lot of datasets the the same time stamp. Could be an idea also to select an option to refresh when the gateways is not occupied by other refresh tasks, to even out the load

  19. Bug refreshing R stats source

    After publishing a PBIX with an R script as a data source the refresh fails in the service with exception below after entering credentials : RException.....NotValidRException

    This using R-3.6.0 64bit in Windows 10 with the PersonalGateway 3000.6.202. Note, R script runs fine in the PBIX file as well as R Studio.

  20. Approval Process for Gateways / Prevent Personal Gateways

    Build an approval process for Gateways before they become Active on a tenant. The approval process would be manged by the Power BI Admin. This approval process could be a feature the Power BI Admin can enable / disable, defaulting to disabled to retrain backward compatibility.

    Current reality allows anyone with a Pro License to push any internal data they have access too to the service. With the right permission they can then push this data public without restrictions.

    This feature is a must have in an Enterprise concerned about how data is used / managed. Just because some has…
