How can we improve Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics?

Provide PowerShell and REST API for creating Power BI output

Currently you have PowerShell and REST APIs for creating outputs, but I don't believe it supports creating a Power BI output. You can only do that via the management portal. I need to be able to do this programmatically including the authentication with Power BI during setup.

You have left! (?) (thinking…)

    It would be great to fix Power BI template deployment via ARM templates. The workaround with dummy refresh token doesn't really work and results in a failed deployment.

    I also need the ability to provision outputs for multiple different customers who each should be able to get real-time data from my system. This should be a true multi-tenant system, so it is not enough to have limits on how many of these outputs I can create. I should in essence be able to output to a partitioned PowerBI sink where I provide the PowerBI dataset ID within my queries (I can look that up from reference data), and have hundreds or thousands of customer datasets receiving data from a single query output.

    Yes, this is something we also need! We have to create hundreds of ASA jobs and a lot of them include PowerBI output (real time dashboarding)
    I believe it's because of the authentication dance, but this really blocks us from automating the provisioning of our solution.
    Is this something that is being planned for ?

    Thanks !
