Export Power BI report template from a desktop report using powershell

I would like to know how to export Power BI template from a Power BI desktop report using power shell?

or perform this action using a C# application

 

I found this link on th web. But it seems like it is only for exporting reports .

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoftpowerbimgmt.reports/export-powerbireport... 

 

Even using this give me the following error-

 

New-PowerBIReport : The term 'New-PowerBIReport' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script fil

operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and

again.

At line:1 char:1

+ New-PowerBIReport -Path 'C:\abc\pqr\Lending  ...

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (New-PowerBIReport:String) [], CommandNotFoundException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

 

Could anybody please steer me in the correct direction?

HI @Meghmala ,

As document mentioned, this script require objectid to export specific contents. I think you need to use report id to instead.

Type: Guid
Aliases: ReportId
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
