  1. Azure Portal Metrics AAS - split by database

    Would be great to be able to use database as a splitting variable when analyzing metrics in the portal for AAS. For example, I am interested to know the memory consumption of each DB on the server, but that can only be achieved right now through DMVs.

  2. Open Source Web Designer (Now Deprecated)?

    Even though I knew it was slated for deprecation, I was still sad seeing the web designer go. It was a really well done piece of software. Yeah, the pbix import was a nice to have but tbh what blew me away was its usefulness as querying / exploration tool. The interface was top notch supporting both casual browsing via drag and drop as well as the query editor for more advanced authoring. Any chance we could see the tool (or snippets of it) open sourced? : )

  4. Client libraries for JavaScript/TypeScript clients

    Currently, there are no officially supported client libraries available for NodeJS clients built using JS/TypeScript languages. The only way to access data from tabular models/cubes is to use another wrapper C# service and talk to that service from the NodeJS client (see this forum post for context: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/cb5c7edb-5eeb-41dd-b59b-f40253bf5e69/nodejstypescript-client-library-support-of-azure-as?forum=AzureAnalysisServices)

    It would be great to have an official library package for these kinds of clients.

  5. Respect data types when AAS model is being viewed in Excel

    We have found that when viewing a cube pivot based on AAS that all data values are imported as string, regardless of the type set in the model.
    This is in spite of the fact that when viewing standard Tabular Analysis Services models in Excel data types are respected.
    Recognising data types allows for the creation of date hierarchies and mitigates sorting issues that occur when sorting by text values.
    Please import data into the correct types when an AAS model is being viewed in Excel.

  6. Allow connection to each replica

    Scenario 1: I need to check whether any queries are running on any replicas before I pause the Azure Analysis Services instance.

    Scenario 2: I need to find and cancel any queries which have been running for more than 5 minutes and I can't control the Timeout connection string property in the client tool such as in Power BI.

    I would like to have some new syntax which lets me connect to each query replica with the following server name:
    asazure://southcentralus.asazure.windows.net/servername:ro1
    asazure://southcentralus.asazure.windows.net/servername:ro2

    The :ro1 and :ro2 syntax would let me connect to query replica 1 and 2.

  7. Support for username() and userprinciplename() in calculated columns

    Currently Azure Analysis services does not support many DAX functions such as username(), lookupvalue() etc. in calculated columns. There are requirements from clients to customize column values based on logged in user which cannot be implemented without these functions in calculated columns. Azure Analysis services should support all these functions to cater these requirements as they are vital for BI.

  11. Making Azure Analysis service a Self Service Data Preparation platform i.e. similar to PAXATA

    Making Azure Analysis service a Self Service Data Preparation platform i.e. similar to PAXATA

    Actually I don't see how AAS can be used for Self-data Preparation, majority of business users look to something similar to PAXATA.

  12. Required Filter at Perspective

    Scenario
    I have a cube (tabular model)
    It contains a list of Customers, and a measure Revenue.
    The Customer table has a column Client Account Manager.
    I will have a report which points to this default perspective, and the Security Role will apply Row Level Security showing only the Client Account Manager their Revenue, for their Customers. Simple.

    For Account Managers & Non-account managers, I also want them to be able to see the revenue for any Customer, even if it is not their own, but I don’t want them to be able to write a report (or remove a…

  13. For Azure service, there is “Always On” option; default is “off” and this better be “on” by default.

    For Azure service, there is “Always On” option; default is “off” and this better be “on” by default. Some prod service was off unexpectedly during the weekend because of this.

  18. Unable to Slice from Outrigger Dimensions

    I see an issue while querying data from an Outrigger Dimension, for example DimAddress have DimState and DimZip as Foreign keys from different dimensions and when I using the above dimensions as filters, the result I see from the Outrigger Dimension in this case, Dim Address is a Cartesian product.

    Also goes for the fact tables if defined as dimension but not as a measure group would result in Cartesian product. Please let me know how to resolve this problem.

  20. Easy data masking

    We would to have the ability to mask data of a specific column depending on the user role.

    At the moment it is possible to hide a specific column by creating a new role. This option has some idiosyncrasies, because when you have a column that appears on a PowerBI report, the reports crashes for users with this specific role. This because the column is hidden.
