Datasource change environment

In order to redirect a report wich was deployed into Power BI Online from QA to PROD environment, Is it really necesary to do that modification in a new PIB desktop file? Isn't it possible to do that from the service itself?

Hi @raulcruzv


When you mention "Is it really necesary to do that modification in a new PIB desktop file", what do you mean?


Is it for a link for users, or Dashboard tiles linking to the report?

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Re: Datasource change environment

What I'd like to do is having an option where we are able to modify the datasource without the need of publishing the *.pbix file again.

With "datasource" I mean having the possibility to change from ServerA to ServerB (e.g. SQL Server QA to SQL Server PROD)

It's not supported to edit the data source on Power BI Service. If you want to change the server name of data source, you have to edit in .pbix file or create a new one and publish again.
