update app via powershell



is it possible to update an app via powershell? We use service principals for automation, but is not supported for service principals. Is there a way?

I deploy my models via the xmla endpoint, and reports via the rest api and the MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt powershell. But to update an app seems to be impossible?

You can use GetAppsAsAdmin using a service principal to detect whether the workspace has a published app or not (Admin - Apps GetAppsAsAdmin - REST API (Power BI Power BI REST APIs) | Microsoft Learn)


You can then use the Pipelines/Deploy All/updateAppSettings to update the app if it exists: Solved: Re: Power BI Rest API to Update Workspace App - Microsoft Power BI Community

Updating the app also includes an AD check on all the audience members and will fail if one of them has become invalid. That may be one of the reasons.
