Power BI RS : Connect to a data source on the server ?

Hello,

 

I would like to know if we can connect to a data source on the server (Power BI RS) ?

 

I created 3 reports with almost the same data model but when I need to modify something, I need to do that on every report. That is annoying and not very optimized.

 

This is why I try to see if we can connect the 3 reports on a unique data source uploaded on the server.

 

Thanks a lot for your help

Regards

Kevin

Hi,

you can't deploy a dataset like in the power bi service on the power bi report server. Normally you can use a tabular cube which you can create in Visual Studio after that you can connect different reports to this source via live connection. Maybe this a a solution for your problem?

 

Best,

Kathrin

Hi KBO,

 

Thank you for your reply.

But I wanted to avoid to create a tabular cube to do that. I only have 3 reports and I does not worth to do it.

 

Thank you very much.

Kevin
