Deploying Report & Dataset that only has Dataflows as Datasources

Hello All, 

 

I am seeking some assistance using deployment pipelines when deploying a dataset/report that is composed of only dataflows.

 

Previously, I had been unable to deploy these reports using the pipeline but now it seems dataflows are supported. However, I am getting an error that I was unsure about:

Just to confirm, this error says that all associated dataflows must be present in the stage in which the report/dataset is being deployed? This dataset supports around 25 reports in our organization and I want to make sure I get it right now that I can deploy this.

@sjrrkb123 ,

now tha dataflows are supported in pipelines, the pipeline automatically connects the items in the target stage as they are connected in the source stage. for example, if you deploy a dataflow and a dataset connected to each other in Dev, we will automatically connect them the same way in Test. 
The caveat here is that if you only deploy the dataset, and the upstream dataflow isn't already in Test, it will not work. you need to make sure that you either deploy the upstream dataflow, or that it already exists in the target stage.
