Power BI Desktop: Cannot open a report from the Report Server

We have the May 2019 free version of Power BI Desktop for Report Server on our PCs and the May 2019 version of Power BI Report Server on our server.

 

Within Power BI Desktop, if we click on the File menu and then open->Report Server and then enter the URL for the Report Server we get an "Item not found" error. However, if we open a report in the Browser and then within the browser click on "Edit in Power BI Desktop" the report opens in Power BI Desktop.

 

Are we able to and if so how do we open reports from the Report Server by clicking File->Open->Report Server?

So that would be your problem. You need to remove the "/browse" off the end of the url.

What format are you using for the url? Are you including the "/reports" after the server name?

 

I can use "http://localhost/reports" on the server itself or something like "https://myserver/reports" from my PC and this feature works fine for me.

I am using:

http://servername/BIReports/browse/
