How to login to the Power BI Desktop RS

Hi, Members! 


An attempt was made to upload to the Power BI Report Server using Save as in Power BI Desktop RS.

Upload failed, and one question came up.


My question is as follows.

1) Can I upload without login in to Power BI Desktop RS?

2) What should I do if I have to login? Do I need a Power BI Pro license?

Sign in is for Power BI Service ( and Save As is for Power BI Report Server.

If Power BI installed on a server that has Power BI Report Server you can use save as (because you have logged in), other way to upload is to login to the power bi report server whithin your browser.



Thank you for your answer.


I installed report server on 'A' PC.

I want to upload using 'Save As' on the 'B' PC.

Is there anything i need to set up on the report server to enable 'Savs As' on your B PC?

Because the current use of 'Save As' has caused an error called 'Server is not available'.
