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. somewhat related to this feature request: https://support.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi/suggestions/7059563-create-a-part-download-of-datasets

We are also doing a lot of transformation of data in Power BI which is then needed for other applications without having to duplicate these transformations again.

I can write rows into the dataset but then cannot read them via the API?? No, just no. Also, we are trying to solve a difficult customer requirement and the UI requirements are too complicated to build in PBI matrix/report/table but the dataset feature in PBI would work so great...if we could only retrieve the data view the UI....

We use Power Bi for dashboards, but we also build dynamic excel spreadsheets off its data model. We want to transition the refreshing of these spreadsheets to our systems instead of a person doing it manually. Not being able to query the data model is presenting a considerable road block.

We are currently generating a solution to send data to PBI, but we also need a way to send some data back to the application. READ option in REST API is necessary to enable integrating PBI in Enterprise solutions.

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!

A

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.
