How to connect PowerBI to relative Dynamics/dataverse DTAP environment

Hey folks,

 

I've got a question, and I can't seem to find the answers online, but I guess it must be a common issue.

We're new to Dynamics 365 at my company, and we're in the process of implementing it. PowerBI is doing a great job creating different reports and connecting to our Dynamics environment. I've been building reports on my own, and they work great. We also 'uploaded' it to our Solution. However, here's the problem:

 

We're using pipelines to push the Dynamics Solution to other DTAP environments, and to make the deployment of these pipelines easier, we want to ensure that PowerBI reports use the database of their current dataverse environment. Without any dynamic link to the database, I'm forced to update the report in the solution or always use production data in the reports of the other DTAP environments.

 

Do any of you have tips on how to make PowerBI dynamically connect to the dataverse/Dynamics Solution?

Thanks in advance!
