Unable to upload PBIX file to PBI Report server

Hi everyone


I have problem with uploading PBIX file to report server May 2021.

I have a fresh installation of PBI Report Server and old one on with I have made upgrade Januarry 2020 to May 2021.


In both cases I'm not able to upload PBIX file.

I can upload RDL and Excel file with no problems, but not PBI.

I have created simple PBI file in May 2021 Desktop application.


Software version


PBI Reports Server

Version1.11.7815.26414(May 2021)


PBI Desktop

Version: 2.93.1681.0 64-bit (maj 2021)


Windows Serwer 2019

[Version 10.0.17763.2061]


The error I'm getting is


An error has occurred.

There was an error uploading your .pbix file. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.


I have checked log files and I see HTTP 422 error


When I track web browser communication I also get error 422.


Please help to resolve this.

Looks like you are not using a compatible PBI Desktop version.

Make sure that you are using Power BI Desktop Optimized for Power BI Report Server.  (May 2021)
