Is there a way to find a Power BI Report if you know the name?

I have been trying to document where I publish reports to various teams, but this morning I got a report refresh failure for a report and I handn't yet documented it. It took me about 10min to find where it was.

 

I knew the name from the refresh failure email, but there were no links in the email to the report, and if there s a search mechanism in the PBI Service, I cannot find it.

 

Delve doesn't find them either. Suggestions?

Hi there

Currently as far as I know the only way to know the report name is via the Audit logs. And that is if people are using the report, then it will appear in the Audit logs.

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

Well, that is something, but ugh, that is horrible. Seems a massive oversight, especially for publishers that don't have access to the audit logs.
