Changing the viewname in power bi

Hello,

I have imported a view for data and created many measure & columns on that data.

I have also  built many reports based on that.

Now i have to change the viewname in sql server because of business requirement- all the data is same as before except the name

 

Is it possible to get data from new view along with its new name in the place of  existing one without loosing the measures or the reports????

 

Thanks in Advance
