Paginated Report Gateway Connection update using REST API

Is there a way to update Gateway Connection datasource for paginated report using Power BI REST API?
I can do this manually when logged into Power BI platform(screenshot below), but if I have over 100 reports and I need to change gateway connection data source for each report it will take a long time and can introduce human error.


For Dashboard datasets I can do this using this REST API call:

Is there something similar that can be used for Paginated reports?

No one knows any solution to this?

Hi @Dasher123 ,


Datasets - Bind To Gateway In Group API needs datasetID in REST API URL Parameter.


Since paginated reports (RDL) don't have a dataset, there is not dataset ID value in paginated reports.

As far as I know, Power BI doesn't support us to update Gateway Connection datasource for paginated report by Power BI REST API.

Hi @v-rzhou-msft,


Thank you for the reply.

If there isn't any REST API for paginated reports what is the best way to update Gateway if I have over 100 reports?
Are there any PowerShell scripts?
Are there plans to have REST API for this functionality in the future?
