Import pbix using Flow

Greetings all, thank you in advance for reading this and more so if you can assist!  


I am attempting to use Flow to retrieve a .pbix file from a bitbucket repository and import it to a workspace.     To simplify the problem I've created this flow to illustrate the issue, simply pulling the .pbix from Sharepoint:

I'm nearly there but am getting an error from PBI Service when posting to the workspace.  When I search for this error I get zero hits.  Makes me feel lonely 😉 

  "error": {
    "code": "MultiPartMimeStreamFormatException",
    "pbi.error": {
      "code": "MultiPartMimeStreamFormatException",
      "parameters": {},
      "details": [],
      "exceptionCulprit": 1

Any guidance is much appreciated, thanks!

Did you solve this issue ?

I am trying to do something similar and I can't find the  solution.



Hi all, 

I submitted this to the pbi community as well, trying to get some insights. 

You can read the response here:

Essentially MS is changing their documentation to fit reality: you can only import .xlsx files from OneDrive for Business, not .pbix files. 

Still working for some solution…

Thanks for your answer. So I guess it does not work either with sharepoint online.


Do you know if it is possible to import .pbix files from another source using the API and flow ?
