Change Connection String via Parameter in Paginated Reports

I've developed a paginated report to publish in a uat workspace pointing to a dev Azure SQL database. Now I want to publish that in a production workspace. Can I parameterize the data source connection string (like I would with parameters if this were a pbix based report)?

Hi @m-colbert 


Yes you can you can use parameters in almost anything within paginated reports. You would use the same syntax as for other parameters but for the data source.
