Re: PowerBI Rest API - Need Help

Hi @nupursolanki,


As far as I know, adding new tables to an existing dataset with Power BI Rest API is not supported currently.


In order to add a new table, we need to recreate the whole dataset, which means we have to recreate all the reports for the new dataset (I don't think there is an option to avoiding this currently). So I would suggest you submit your requirement on Power BI Ideas to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy
