Could you please mark the proper answers as solutions?
There are two ways you can see what's inside. BUT it's definitely a bad idea to make any changes.
1. Unzip the pbix file as a compressed file.
2.1 Install the SQL Server Management Studio.
2.2 Open the pbix file.
2.3 Open Resource Monitor. Please refer to the snapshot below.
How about now? You also can download it from the attachment.
No clue as to why, but a PBIX is really just a ZIP file so if you can do it for a ZIP file, you can do it for PBIX.
Not sure if my question was clear or not.Let me try to be a little more specific.
I have the .pbix file in the extracted form and can load it as well inside Power BI.
My ask is if I were to look into the backend XML files which make up this .pbix file where are they stored and how can they be accessed.
I am trying to access the metadata which is behind the .pbix file.
You best bet is probably the Power BI REST API.
