Changing data source IP from PowerBI service directly



We recently moved our database to a different server. Now my challenge is that I have multiple reports that use older data source IP. How do I update them on the powerbi service directly instead of going into individual reports on PowerBI desktop and updating IPs. 


Here is the problem


1. I need to update IPs of the data source in every report on the desktop 

2. Apply changes ( which requires refreshing the tables and it takes a long time because I have a lot of tables) 

3. Published the report to PowerBI service. ( If I dont refresh the tables it does not update the IP ) 


Please help.

Re: Changing data source IP from PowerBI service directly

Hi, @rjain12 


Based on my research, It is suggested to update the IPs of data source in Power BI desktop. If your data source is a specific kind, you may modify the IPs of data source in Power BI service with api.


For further information, you may refer to the following link. It may help.
