Archive Reports and Datasets

I have created a workspace (called 'Archive') where I intend to store deprecated reports. I would like to migrate the deprecated reports from My Workspace to Archive. For the reports themselves, I have Saved a Copy in the Archive workspace and deleted them from My Workspace. For the underlying Datasets, though, I do not see a copy or move option, so I am stuck for now with the datasets in My Workspace.

 

Is there any way to move the datasets to the Archive workspace? I am the author and an admin, so this does not seem like an entitlements issue.

Hi @MasterP 

 

You could duplicate workspaces by using Power BI cmdlets (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/duplicating-workspaces-by-using-power-bi-cmdlets/) or Power BI REST APIs (https://www.sqlshack.com/migrate-power-bi-reports-between-multiple-workspaces/).

 

You could also download a single .pbix file from a dataset and then publish it to the Archive workspace. There are some considerations in here.

Note that if you copy a report from My Workspace to Archive Workspace, the copied report in Archive Workspace is still linked to the dataset in My Workspace. This means that if deleting the dataset in My Workspace, the copied report will no longer work.
