Power BI - Embedded Update/Data Gateway Questions

Hello - thank you for taking the time to answer our questions.

 

We are wondering when Power BI embedded will enable scheduled refreshes of Power BI Desktop files connected to on-premise data sources. Currently we have to manually refresh and upload the files every day which is very cumbersome. 

 

Another question we have is will the Analyze in Excel feature ever route on-premise SSAS data sources through the Power BI service like deployed models are, instead of just connecting using the local on-premise server name? This would allow our external users not on our domain to access our SSAS databases without needing a certificate.

 

Thanks.

Re: Power BI - Embedded Update/Data Gateway Questions

We're actively working to bring on-premises connectivity to Power BI Embedded through a direct query connection through the gateway. So you won't need to manually refresh Smiley Happy. Your question on SSAS routing, is a great candidate for https://ideas.powerbi.com. I'm not aware of a plan to do that right now.

Re: Power BI - Embedded Update/Data Gateway Questions

What is the timeline for this feature to be available?  Is there a public roadmap for Power BI Embedded? 

Thank you,
