Well, this is just as expected.

The Power BI reports are accessible only via the portal, not the SSRS web service.

@roshramkar the webservice needs to be running to run the portal engine so to speak however you should never need to access it it directly, all your reports get accessed via the webportal


Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution.

So, I am an IT Developer creating reports for my users, what url should I use to share reports to my end-users?

Reports or ReportServer?

Re: Regarding issue The operation you are attempting on item '/' is not allowed

That's a good question, we have a custom "Report Organizer" we use to present our reports and our users don't use the portal at all. Everything we link them to is via /ReportServer right now and until now we had no reason to assume our users would be hitting the main portal page. Thanks for bringing this up, going to have to shift things around a bit if we can't link direct through /ReportServer.
