Development and production environments

Hi

 

We have an workspace that has a dataset and reports; these use direct query. We would like to set up a seperate workspace as a development/QA environment where the dataset can connect to the Azure SQL (development) database.

 

The first issue is moving the reports to a new workspace. I download the dataset and then replublish to the new (dev) workspace. But when I download the reports, these are "attached" to the dataset and it is not possible to publish then to the new workspace.

 

How can we set up a dev and prod in this way manually to get us started?

 

Any have any pointers as to do this in a more professional way - in a release pipeline - going forward?

 

Thanks

Hi @norbyian,


 

Yes, it seems that we cannot move the reports to a new app workspace directly in Power BI currently. 

 

By my tests, I could download report from app workspace A then republish it to app workspace B. I'm a little confused about your sceanrio, what is the "attached"? 

 

In addition, you could refer to this similar thread which may give you another choice.

Hi 

 

Yes Thanks, it is possible to do this manually. And it is possible to duplicate a workspace using powershell.

In an ideal world the powerbi would integrate with VSTS/DevOps Smiley Happy
