Use shared datasets from Report Server with Power BI Desktop RS

Is there a way to use shared datasets from Report Server on Power BI Desktop RS ?


If the only way is OData feed, is it possible to use datasets with more than 400 000 rows and in reasonable times ?


For now, I need to reduce the number of rows in my dataset so it does not fail when importing on Power BI Desktop RS and it can takes more than 30 minutes...


Thanks for your time and help !

First of all, the workflow is you create a report in desktop for RS than save it to Report Sever, and there is a button "Edit in Power bi Desktop on  RS". So I am sure what do you mean by import share dataset from Report Sever back to Power bI Desktop for RS.


If you mean the shared dataset from Power BI Service, you can just get the dataset in the connector in Power bi Desktop.
