Change semantic model of a published report

Hello All,

 

I have made a copy of an already published PowerBI report, modefied the copy to suite my requirements, then published it to PowerBI Service. Once published a new Semantic Model was created for this report.

 

Is there a way to make the newly published report point to the original Semantic Model? then remove the newly created model since it is the same as original (see image below).

 

Any advise greatly apreciated!

@RichFlorida Probably the easiest way is to make a brand new report. Connect it to your Power BI dataset. It will default to Live but you can switch it to DirectQuery in the lower right corner if you want. Then copy and paste the visuals from the copy of report to this new report. Save the file locally as the same name as your copy of report CognosAudit-Richard-Auto. Publish and it should overwrite your report and semantic model of the copy of report.

Thank you @Greg_Deckler , your solution works.

I believe the report you made changes to has to be named the same as the original. Then, it should prompt you when publishing the report if you'd like to replace the existing one.
