Restoring a PBI report from ReportServer database backup

Does anyone know how to restore a PBI report from a backup of the ReportServer database?

 

From what I can make out (and I haven't tried it yet), you need to restore the record in the dbo.Catalog table, the related records in the dbo.CatalogItemExtendedContent and the records in dbo.DataModelDataSource.

 

Can anyone offer any advice on this?

Re: Restoring a PBI report from ReportServer database backup

Its simpler to restore the old DB somewhere and export the content out (the PBIX files etc) then resubmit/deploy the content

 

If you take a look at this thread there's some PowerShell that will export the PBIX files and RDL etc.
