Moving to a new Tenant

Hi There,

 

we are moving a new office365 tenant. All the old reports and dashboards are currently sitting in the old tenant and we want to migrate all of them to the new tenant. From all the articles I have checked, there seems to nothing that points to the right direction. Can someone tell me what is the best way to do this?

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi @sudarshan,

 

You can Export a report from Power BI service to Desktop (Preview) or if you already backed up pbix files for Power BI reports before, you can publish pbix files to new Power BI tenant, and configure gateways, dashboards same as in old Power BI tenant.  Currently, there is no direct method to migrate Power BI service content to different tenant.

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi, 

 

Keep in mind the Export a report from Power BI service will only work with reports that were created with Power BI for Desktop (after a certain patch level, not sure witch).

 

Some of the Office 365 Groups content that are created with the workspace such as SharePoint and Ondrive can be migrated using tools tho. 

 

I hope this helps,

Merci

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi Folks,

 

Here's a link on how you would migrate the reports up to Power Bi embeded where you're required to export then re-import the pbix. In this case there are a couple of APIs to automate the process.

Thanks,

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi @sudarshan

 

I'm in agreement with @v-qiuyu-msft the only way is to export all .pbix files and re-upload.

 

You will need to re-configure any Data Gateways.

 

Thanks,

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi Quiyun,

 

Thanks for this. Unfortunately, we have to go down this path as there is no support for migration of PowerBi reports to a new tenant Unless you are using PowerBi embedded.

 

Thanks for your help

Re: Moving to a new Tenant

Hi Merci,

 

The Download of PBIX reports from web is only supported after November 2016 Update. Except for Power BI all others are migrated already.
