Hi @pmrejeesh ,

 

To my knowledge you cannot upload PBIT files to the report server, PBIT are templates so in that way since they don't have any database attach you cannot upload it to PBI.

 

Are you also getting the error with PBIX files?

HI @anikah ,

 

PBIT files are template files these are used to create templates and don't have any "database" attach so you cannot upload them to the PBI service you can only upload PBIX files that will create a datasource on the web service.

 

Check the documentation on PBIT files.

Re: Unable to upload pbit file to the power BI reporting server?

Prior to the January 2019 PBIRS release we could upload .pbix files to the server.  We did it as a way to share files.  We can no longer do that.  Was that functionality taken away with the January 2019 release?
