I am trying Power BI Report server, configuration done and able to access the report server urla s well.
However when I try to save/deploy the pbix file into the server I am getting the below error
"an error while attempting to save the report to power bi" Please find below the atatched screenshots as well.
Please check if you create this report in Power BI Desktop (Power BI Report Server). You can save the .pbix file local, then upload the file to report server via Upload option.
I have the same problem here.
I created the report via Power BI Report by powerbi desktop (report server)
i can save the file local, but when i want to save the report to power bi report server is says the same error
I also have the same problem trying to upload PBI report to the PowerBI Report Server May Preview. Using the latest (May preview) PowerBI Desktop (Report Server), the report has a tabular data source but get the error "An error occured while attempting to save the report to Power BI Report Server."
Saving the pbix locally and trying to upload via the Power BI Report Server portal does not work either.
Enabling tracing in PBI desktop didn't give any error, however I did find an error in the RSPortal_yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm_ss.txt log in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\LogFiles.

I tried create a report Paginated report by report builder to test if i could upload report to Power BI Report Server
However when i save the report Paginated,(in the Recent Sites and Servers) it appears the address which is "Web service URL" to save into Power BI Report Server (save the re) but before when i create the report in SSRS i save the report into the address "Web Portal URL"
Is that the problem cause the error? but how to change it? I'm not sure,,, waiting for your discussion
I guess this should not be the cause. As in my environment, I configure a SSRS native mode before, and yesterday I configure the Power BI report server, I can also publish the .pbix file created from the Power BI desktop for report server to Power BI report server.
Please repeat the steps to save the report to Power BI report server, and find the log file around the time that error throws and share it here. And I will report this issue internally.
