Does REST API support on-premises Report Server?

I've just downloaded the 11/1 GA update the the on-premises Report Server and Power BI Desktop.  I read a reference to a REST API -- will this work with the on-premises Report Server? Where might I find documentation?

yes.

I setup a connection to the Oct PowerBI RS 

using http://Server/Reports/api/v2.0

 

and connected to an odata data source

 

drill into Datasets and get the ID

They use in an odata conection with open type columns (from advanced) and put your id between the brackets.

 

Source = OData.Feed("http://server/Reports/api/v2.0/DataSets(06ffbf58-b11a-47d0-b17c-18ff44d26c68)/data", null, [MoreColumns=true]),

 

And expand your columns.

If your looking for the REST API documentation for development purposes we published it on SwaggerHub here:

 

https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis/microsoft-rs/PBIRS/2.0

 

If your looking to connect to you datasets using the OData API this is the specific API you need to use:

 

http://{server}/reports/api/v2.0/datasets(Path='{path to your report})/data

 

Note you can also use ID instead of path if you know your datasets ID.

Thanks. Using a path is going to be a bit more friendly that finding the id.
