One Power BI Desktop File

We are building a Template report to sell to our SaaS clients, we have the same underlying data structure, therefore, our goal is to maintain a single pbix file.


Let's say even if we build a template file, how to deploy a change to all the published 50+ datasets?


RLS is out of option as eash dataset has about millions of data.

Hi Zubair - Do you have any recommendation on this challenge.

@BIForce Well, with a template file, .pbit, you would distribute that to your customers and when they open it they would connect the queries to their underlying data. I feel I am missing something.

@ me in replies or I'll lose your thread!!!

@Greg_Deckler  - Thank you so much for your reply. It is for SaaS and we host all the clients database. So basically we need to do import and everything for them. They just login to their Power BI service and view the dashboards.


Please feel free to reach out if you have any followup questions. I really appreciate your kind help.
