Changing dataset that a report uses

Hi, 

I have some reports that use a shared dataset. I want to provide our QA team with access to these reports so they can test them on their test environment. The reports currently point to my development dataset, how do I change the dataset to our test environment dataset?

 

I have looked in Data Source Settings however this allows my to change the source of the data rather than the dataset.

 

regards, Tim.

Hi @timhopson,

You can take a look at the following link about using the query parameter to dynamic change the datasets between dev and test environments:

Using the Power BI Service Parameters to change connection strings (To possibly change between Dev 

In addition, you can also consider using power bi pipeline(required Premium license), it allows you to deploy and test between three different environments. (dev, test, fact)

Get started with deployment pipelines
