As an IT administrator responsible for PBI Service management and governance. I would like the ability to create free form tags (Similar to azure portal tags). to track key metadata like a GL Code or responsible business department or other business specific information. These tags should be exposed via the API so they can be used to pull back in reports. tagging assets in the workspace (Reports, dashboards datasets) would be useful as well
when credentials for scheduled refresh expire
10-15 of my scheduled refreshes for both datasets and dataflows failed because
the credentials cached in the PowerBI service for SharePoint expired. It took
only a few minutes to renew those credentials, but several hours to re-refresh
the dataflows (they all hit the same source, and time out if fired at once.
They are scheduled for staggered refresh). If I had been notified by email
before the refreshes failed instead of after, I could have easily renewed the
credentials in question.
Note that my user account/password did not change. The access token stored by PBI merely expired.
