SOAP access to managing Power BI reports in SSRS?

I'm going to have a base set of Power BI reports hosted in an on-premises Report Server for a number of our customers. We will be embedding the reports in our application via an IFrame. 


So, here's the thing. I have a base SpendReport, and ten client-specific versions of the same report (SpendReport_cust1, SpendReport_cust2, etc.), where the only difference between each version is the data source to which it is attached.


Is there any way I can automate my deployment of these variants, say through the SOAP interface to SSRS? I'd like to be able to upload my base PBIX file, then run a management app to make 10 copies, each tied to the appropriate data source. 


I can connect to the report server and make a ListChildren call that shows the reports I've uploaded, but when I try to call GetDefinition on a particular report, it cannot be found. I'm guessing that it may have something to do with the fact that the reports have a TypeName of "PowerBIReport", but I'm not sure.
