Power Bi REST API huge report export

Hi All

 

I have a published huge report file (400Mb). Now, I'm trying to retrieve the .pbix file with REST API (Export report URL)

https://api.powerbi.com/v1.0/myorg/reports/<report_id>/Export

 

but maybe because of its huge size, the request runs for 5mins and returns below error response

{
    "Message""An error has occurred."
}
 
can anyone suggest a workaround or any other way to export this huge file?
 
**This API works fine for small reports

HI @Anonymous,

I'd like to suggest you take a look at the following link about download report limitations, they should also suitable for export report API.

Download a report from the Power BI service to Power BI Desktop (Preview)#considerations-and-troubleshooting
