Change underlying datasource in a dataset via API?

Is there a way to change the datasrouce an online dataset is connected to via a PowerBI API?


For example:


A Dataset has been uploaded to the powerbi service, and it is connected to DB_1.

Is there a way to copy it and point it to DB_2?

Updated credentials may be required as well.


We have a number of datasources we wish to maintain and update, but we do not wish to upload datasets multiple times to updates the datasets.


Would appreciate an assitance.
