PowerShell - deploy and Update PBIX on Report Server

Hello Community, 


I have used theses lines in order to deploy a pbix file on Report Server : 


$session = New-RsRestSession -ReportPortalUri http://lservername/Reports
Write-RsRestCatalogItem -WebSession $session -Path "C:\2019\mypbix.pbix" -RsFolder "/MyFolder"

It is working fine. 

Now, when I need to update the bix with another version , I used the same command bellow but I am getting this error : 

Write-RsRestCatalogItem : System.Exception: Failed to create catalog item: The remote server returned an error: (409) Conflict. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an

Does any one please have an idea about hte command PowerShell that could update  apbix previously on the Server please by a new version ?

I am having the same issue. This seems to have started after the upgrade to the Power BI report server Oct 2020 version. I can run the PowerShell script on the TFS build server but it fails for several reports (not all) when I run this through the DevOps build using a build service account. It is not consistent on which reports publish and which don't reports in the same location on the report server work fine while others fail.

Hi Asma,

same issue on my side, even if I put -overwrite option.
Did you find a solution ?
