Unable to replace report in service with same name

I have report in a workspace and these are the steps I take:

1. Download report

2. Change datasource (PowerBI dataset)

3. publish report

4. power bi does not offer me to replace the previous report with exactly the same name

5. End up with 2 reports with same name...

 

When I perform the exact same steps but do not change datasource - I am offered to replace the old report.

 

Any ideas?

I think this is by design. Works same for my tenant as well.

 

If you want to have a dev, test and prod model / report, I would look into if pipelines can solve your demands 🙂

Its not solved. Still unable to update the report even though I have same user logged in on PBI Desktop and service and the file name is exactly the same. Must be a bug because I end up with 2 reports with the same name in the workspace. 
The report is based on power bi dataset and the only thing I do is change the underlying dataset on the report and publish again...

I´m able to replicate this bug by creating 2 datasets in workspace a:

I then open power bi desktop and create new report. Select datahub > Power BI dataset and select dataset1 for the report> publish the report to my workspace > download the pbix file > open the report > select transform data > datasource settings> change datasource to dataset2 > save the report and publish to my workspace end this is the end resault:

Hi, @solvisig ,

Check that the accounts on the Power BI Desktop and service are the same, and that the names of the published workspaces and pbix are exactly the same. I tested it and it was possible to replace old data sets and reports.
