PBIRS Odata - cannot pull data with url from shared datasets


I've been using PBIRS.  i want to use shared datasets in my powerbi reports with odata.


I created shared datasource and shared dataset (using shared datasource).

When run the url above, i got shared datasets list on my PBIRS. this link downloads with json file format and i can see my shared datasets.

 url : https://myservername/reports/api/v2.0/datasets


when i run this url to see data on shared datasource, it throws error;

url : http:s//myservername/reports/api/v2.0/datasets(fb3ceb83-3b05-4512-b543-2b83bd30da6e)/data

error description : 


{"error":{"code":"220","message":"The data set could not be processed.","details":[{"code":"222","message":"There was a problem getting data from the Report Server Web Service: The operation you are attempting on item '/MyFolder/Dataset1' is not allowed for this item type. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.WrongItemTypeException: The operation you are attempting on item '/MyFolder/Dataset1' is not allowed for this item type."}]}}


so, i can not work with this url on odata on powerbi desktop. what should i do?

Hi @rkapukaya ,


1. Is this just a clerical error?



when i run this url to see data on shared datasource, it throws error;

url : http:s//myservername/reports/api/v2.0/datasets(fb3ceb83-3b05-4512-b543-2b83bd30da6e)/data



2. Please check if this post is helpful: 



I removed the database from the AG and still not working.  I did find something interesting that led me to a solution.  While in reporting services connection manager I clicked the URL for the Web Service.  It prompted me for credentials.  I was able to get to the web service after entering valid credentials.  On a hunch that this could be the issue.  I added an URL that is configured for all assigned IP addresses.  The URL that is created is server name/reportserver.  When I click on this new URL it get directly to the web service without having to enter credentials.  Now preview works and I can load a dataset in Mobile Report Publisher.  All is working now.

I originally configured the URL to be the AG listener for the AlwaysOn AG.  This was causing a prompt for credentials.  Now that I have added the new URL everything is working.  Although probably not in the case of a fail-over.

I guess now my question would be is there a setting that would prevent the credentials being prompted on the AG listener URL.

Hi @Icey 


1) sorry, i copied wrong. It starts with https://....


2) When i clicked report server url nothing shows up.


After that, i tried another steps;

 * Open new PBIRS desktop and exract table from database

 *  I changed code on advance editor like below and error came up;

My odata feed code;


Source = OData.Feed("https://MyReportServer/Reports/api/v2.0/datasets(DataSetId)/data",null, [MoreColumns=true])





Error description;


DataSource.Error: OData: Request failed: The remote server returned an error: (422) Unprocessable Entity. (The data set could not be processed.)
