    • Pin Read-Only visuals to new dashboard

      Many of our users have read-only access to our reports. We want people to be able to choose their own visuals from each report and pin to their own dashboard. Since they don't have write access to the reports it doesn't allow pinning to a new dashboard in their personal workspace.

      • Power BI User Filtering for Embedded

        I have been exploring Power BI Embedded for use in our mobile and web CRM SaaS apps.

        The Power BI authoring and embedding is awesome + the APIs.

        We have one SQL database that serves all subscribers.

        Our users are Sales Reps and Sales Managers (for a particular Subscriber)

        Each Sales Rep should only see dashboards with their data (based on UserId or SalesRepCode)

        Each Sales Manager should see data for their connected Sales Reps. We have a table that links Sales Reps to Managers.

        On all queries we pass SubscriberId and UserId, so we can render just the data…

          • Sanboxed Custom visualizations

            Currently the Custom Visualizations are sandboxed. If we develop more that two, it is not possible for the two visualizations to be aware of each other.

            We need an API to pass and get values from a Sandboxed Custom Visualization.

            • Custom Visualizations - Page Filters

              in the current Embedded Apps there is not way to pass any filter(page,Report,future:Dashboard) fulters to the custom visualization.

              In order to the custom visualizations to be as functional as the default ones, we need to 'level the playing ground' :-) and be able to pass/get any filter from the the 'environment'.

              • Allow retrieving the connection details

                Given any report, we would like an api to retrieve the data connection details.
                For example, if the report contains a "Customer" table, it would return information like:
                the schema name that the table belongs to (dbo)
                the database instance name (SQLServer)
                the database server name
                the connection type (ODBC, JDBC, OLEDB...)
                other relevant connection details (jdbc url, odbc dsn, driver name)

                Knowing where the data is coming from is important, it allows greater confidence and trust in the data being visualized.

                • Sankey custom visual

                  1. Can there be an option for formatting color of Links that allows color to be set to same color as the node (either source or destination?)
                  2. Can the hover over pop up boxes have modifiable title text instead of defaulting to source, destination, and weight?

                  • Access Web APIs using OAuth for Authentication

                    Currently access to web content is limited to Anonymous, Windows, Basic, Web API, and Organizational account. There seems to be no easy way to access APIs that rely on OAuth for user authentication. An OAuth HTTP header looks like this.

                    GET /v1/reporting/someEnpoint?someParam=someValue HTTP/1.1
                    Host: reporting.somehost.net

                    • Allow specific Sections tabs in a Power BI Report to be displayed in an iframe

                      We have implemented the Power BI report iframe API as specified by https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-developer-integrate-a-power-bi-tile-or-report/. There is no way to specify that a specific section tab on a report be displayed in the iframe though. The section tab shown seems to be random. We need the ability to specify a section tab.

                      • JS Callback for Filter changes in embedded reports

                        Would be nice if you could catch an event if a user set a Filter in a Report. This would allow better interaction.

                        • can we have visualization api, so end user can change report visualizations at their end

                          After integrating power BI tiles/reports into app and made available to end user. Then end user must be able to change visual type of reports (eg. pie chart to histogram etc)

                              The REST API supports dataset operations but does not allow adding a new table to an existing dataset. It does allow adding new columns/fields to existing tables - but the inability to add new tables is a huge hole in the API.

                              • Custom Visuals documentation

                                Custom Visuals: LOVE them. Awesome stuff. BUT there appears to be little to NO documentation on how to actually utilize each one. There are scattered posts out there that describe one or the other. But it stops there. How about some WRITTEN documentation about EACH and EVERY custom visual in the gallery, and with links to the same when you click on one or the other.

                                      Hola a todos,

                                      Tengo una tabla con columnas que necesito pasar a Filas (Registros), por favor alguien tiene alguna Solución.

                                      Solo sé que en excel se relaciona con Embedded.

                                      Gracias.

                                      • Trigger refreshes for datasets using API

                                        Instead of refreshing a dataset based on a schedule, I would like to trigger running a refresh on demand. A REST API that I could use to get the history of refreshes, current status of refresh, and start a refresh would be helpful.
