PowerBI Embedded: Unable to use Import method with `Overwrite` option


In Our case is we want to provide the update on pbix file, it's likely that users change pbix files continuously and then update that pbix back into PowerBI Embedded. We don't want to create new dataset whenever importing again on this to solve in this kind  of problem , if any overwrite options?

There's currently no overwrite options.  What we do to solve this is always reference reports by a variation of Dataset Name, not Report Id.  Then when you import an updated pbix simply look for any current import with that dataset name and delete it.


For example:


Here 'EPM Reports' is the Dataset Name, and Report Id is never exposed.
