Welcome to another week of the BI-RoundUp.

Power BI – New Monitoring Capabilities for Power BI Premium

As you can see above there now is an App which you can get for Free from the App Source which will get all your capacity metrics which you can then use to better understand how you and your users are using your Power BI Premium Capacity.

There was also an indication that additional metrics will be added such as Long Running Queries and Query Duration, which is great to see if there are particular queries which could be consuming CPU and memory.

If you are using the A SKU’s for Power BI Premium you can also use the above App to analyse your capacity.

Power BI – Developer Update for August

Power BI Embedded in Azure

As you can see above, there are once again a whole host of great improvements to the Power BI Development story.

There is now Multi-Geo support for ISV’s who require their customers data to be located in their specific regions.

Power BI Embedded is now integrated with Azure Diagnostics, which helps with better diagnosis of resource issues and what is the root cause of these issues.

As per the request from a lot of users, there now is the QPU metric available when using Power BI Embedded.

Embed Capabilities

Now you can create a customized error notification for your end users when your App is embedded, so that the users do not get confused when there is an error.

There is now a more detailed and indicative error message when you are developing your app, which should make the entire development experience that much better.

There is now also a new updated Power BI Embedded playground which is more integrated and shows you how to leverage the JavaScript API

And finally, you can now use the Power BI Rest APIs to integrate with the new App Workspace experience, which is great as it moves away from the tight integration with Office 365 groups
