One embedded report, multiple datasources

I'm assisting a client with some development and want to know how the following can be done:

 

 

They have a Web App that will be deployed on different Azure data centers for different clients. 

Each deployment of the Web App will connect to it's own Azure SQL database.

They want to create PowerBI reports and embed them in the Web App.

 

How can the multiple instances of the Web App load the same report but change the data source to load the data from the applicable Azure database?

Those different Azure SQL database shall have the same tables consumed in the "same report". You can

  1. Create one set of reports in Power BI desktop.
  2. Deploy those reports to different groups, say if "multiple instances" means 3 instances, create 3 groups and deploy the reports to all of the 3.
  3. Update the connection strings and credentials individually for the reports in different groups. See this thread.
  4. Embedd reports from different groups accordingly in your application instances.
