Switch datasource from Live Connection to Import

Hi there,


Now that we have August Release for RS, I have an existing report using SSAS Connection Live. Without rework can I switch my report to Import if not what is the easiest way to do without doing it from scratch?

Thank you

Hi @Anonymous,


Based on my test, we are not able to change the SSAS data source "Connect live" to "Import" directly. In your scenario, I'm afraid you have to create a new pbix file manually with SSAS import mode.
