Please vote for this feature. We need an enterprise level alerting solution with a Monitoring Dashboard.
The current alerting solution does not scale well a can become a maintenance nightmare.
Building the Alert Pipeline:
1. Each Metric has to be add to a Dashboard.
2. An Alert can be added to each Dashboard Tile.
3. A Flow routine then has to be built to send alerts to a team alias.
Sliced versions of a Metric require individual Dashboard Tiles, Alerts, and Flows.
Anytime a Dashboard Tile breaks or the Report Metric configuration changes the Alert Pipeline has to be rebuilt.
Thanks Derrick! Anyone else think this would be a useful addition? Please add your vote!
Great suggestion! There’s minimal control over this today and we’d like to improve this. If you need real-time updates today, you can take a look at the Developer APIs for pushing data directly into Power BI datasets. Adding your vote will help us prioritize this functionality!
Can't this be done already by using parameters to define your connection string?
You can already decouple the data from the visualizations. (see below)
Having the ability to DIFF PBIX files and MERGE changes would be very helpful.
1. Perform all of your Data Modeling (Power Query M and DAX) in one PBIX file.
2. Publish it to the Power BI Service.
3. Open a new Reports PBIX file, select Power BI -> Power BI datasets as your data source.
You can also add additional DAX to the Reports PBIX file.
This allows versioning of the Dataset and building Reports tailored to different audiences.
The Report PBIX files are ### KB while the Dataset PBIX files are ###,### KB or larger.
This is on in our plans for Power BI Desktop! Stay tuned :-)
Allow Visio type grouping of visuals so they can be moved around on the page as an autonomous unit and allow copy/paste of the group.
Then we can create a single unit of visuals that are used multiple times on a page.
The format for the autonomous unit would only include the common data fields, X/Y positioning, and scaling %.
