@Anonymous@Anonymous  this is a great question and powershell is to rescue.

 

Source-> is a folder where you have all the pbix to be batch-converted to pbit

Destination-> is a folder where you will keep all converted pbit file

 

 

 

 

$items = Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Users\Source"

$move =For ($i = 0; $i -lt $items.Length; $i++) {
# Write-Host $items[$i] ([System.IO.Path]::GetFileNameWithoutExtension($items[$i]))
Copy-Item -Path "C:\Users\Source\$($items[$i])" -Destination "C:\Users\Destination\$(([System.IO.Path]::GetFileNameWithoutExtension($items[$i]))).pbit"
}

 

 

 

 

 Please run the above from PowerShell ISE to do the batch conversion from source to destination

From what I understand, you are using PowerShell to change the file extension from PBIX to PBIT.  But,this is not going to remove the data from PBIX. Isn't it?

 

 

let me get back to you later on this

Hello @Anonymous ,

I have a similar problem. Did you manage to find a solution ?

 

I am surprised that MS has not addressed this issue. 

 

Thanks,

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on my test, PowerBI desktop executive file only provides a parameter to run pbix file, we can only export pbit via PowerBI desktop manually.

Besides, I haven't found a official command line tool to do this.
