Extract Model.bim from Power BI Report in Service

Hi All,


As part of one of my recent projects, I am trying to build a model.bim file from pbix file. Here the catch is, the dataset in power bi service is updated/created using XMLA Endpoint, so I will not be able to download the file directly, I am looking for a way to export report.pbix file with live connection to my dataset and save it as .bim file.


Any help would really be helpful.
