Updating MYSQL reports/dashboards to run on Postgresql

Does any body know if it is possible to update existing reports, previously linked to a MYSQL database, so they will now run on the same data tables (table prefix has changed) but in PostgreSQL opposed to MYSQL.  

 

I apprecaite i can update each table manually on each report (via Transform data, and Advanced editor) but there are a lot of them and some have many step changes, so looking for the best way to tell PowerBi to retrieve the data from PostgreSQL instead of MySQL.

 

Any help really apprecaited.

Unfortunately I believe that going into the advanced editor for each query is your only option. If the table structures and column data types are identical you should only have to change 1-2 lines. But I am not aware of any bulk operation that would allow you to change either the data provider or table prefix in one go.
