Deployment pipeline will not overwrite / update report

Hi,

 

for the last 3 or 4 months we have been seeing that our Power BI Deployment Pipeline is not overwriting/updating an existing report. It doesn't matter if you use the web UI or we use the API in Azure DevOps - both ways don't work and the report is not overwritten / updated. When we deploy the report by using Power BI Desktop or TabularEditor, this issue does not occur.

Why Power BI Deployment Pipeline is creating a new report is not understandable. 

 

 

Thanks

Hi @Thomas_Roeder 

If you edit the report in Deployment workspace and then deploy it to Test workspace , the report can be overwritten / updated ?

Hi @v-yetao1-msft 

 

no, the report will be created once again. So that we have twice reports with the name "TP_Dashbard" in the Test workspace.

Hi @v-yetao1-msft 

 

when we deploy /publish with Power BI Desktop. We will be asked if we want to replace the report.

Hope you can help us, why we can't replace the report with the Power BI Deployment Pipeline.

Hi @v-yetao1-msft,

 

we have the same problem when it comes to deployment of reports.

As a difference we deploy our reports with the following Powershell command New-PowerBIReport (MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt.Reports) | Microsoft Learn 

 

New-PowerBIReport -Workspace $workspace -Path "$($f.FullName)" -Name "$($f.BaseName)" -ConflictAction CreateOrOverwrite
 
Should we change the parameter to "Overwrite" or do you have any additional information?
 
Best Regards,
Dan
