Pretty self explanatory - would be great to be able to stream a dataset, or grab a specified number of rows.

This would also require the ability to query the # of rows, size of dataset etc, column types etc.

We need this capability to save the dataset to JSON format for use in a .NET web application. The .NET application already embeds powerbi reports so it seems like natural transition to also getting the dataset for querying or other uses.

Like many others this limits what you can do within the API - It seems there is an ability there its just not being open to developers - please add this facility and have us developers make the most of PowerBI and not be restrained.

I'm shocked that it's not possible to read a dataset in he REST-api! You have to fix this ASAP!

Please make this feature available a.s.a.p. so that we need not create a separate REST API just for fetching the same data from a different source. This will make the lives of developers and architects a little less complicated.

How on earth is this still not possible? Really? What the reason? We really thinking about moving forward from Power BI. Read datasets are MUST !!! Please implement it ASAP!!!!

How on earth is this still not possible. Pulling data via API seems like the very first thing you would ever want to do.

I am flabbergasted that this is not a feature! who wouldn't want to retrieve data that has been massaged and filtered in a nice report programmatically via the API to use?
I mean, seriously?

Please add this functionality, being able to have a sturdy data model in Power BI is amazing but not being able to use the data to make complementary processes is such a huge disadvantage.

Once you have processed data in the integrated model from different sources, for instance, to elaborate KPIs, it would be very desirable to access Power BI Service to get them through a REST API.
