Moving Reports from Power BI Service to Report Server

What are the options in moving reports from Power BI Desktop (Cloud version) to the Report Server version of pbix?

I understand that these two (Power BI cloud and Power BI on-prem) uses different versions of the Power BI Desktop software, but is there a way I can easily transfer/ convert format of the pbix I did with the cloud version to the on-prem version?

Re: Moving Reports from Power BI Service to Report Server

I suspect the answer to this is no.


If your Web Service Reports are in a newer version of Web-PBIDesktop then they won't open or will complain when you open them in SSRS-PBIDesktop.


If you can pull the PBIX files down off the server (save them locally) then you can try opening them in SSRS-PBIDesktop and see if you can then publish the reports to your SSRS-PBI Server. Assuming its all imported data then this has a fair chance of working. What happens when you are using datasets and datasources I have no idea. I'm guessing you would have to edit the datasource settings whne you open the PBIX in SSRS-PBIDesktop and confirm they all work/refresh.


So I think you probably have to do this long hand. It would certainly be worth sharing your experience/findings as you try this.
