How do I identify a DataSet with PBIX OneDrive refresh and find the PBIX source file?

Hi,

does anyone know a way how I identify DataSets with PBIX OneDrive refresh and find the PBIX source file in OneDrive or SharePoint Online? Can I use the Rest API for this?

Greetings
Marcus

Hi @mwegener 

 

Ahh ok I see why this could be an issue. What happens when you try the API with this data source to see what it returns?

Hi @GilbertQ ,

 

the API unfortunately only shows me the data sources within PBIX.

The API "Get Imports In Groups" shows me the source, but unfortunately not the path.

Has anyone found a solution to this? 
To find the path to the original sharepoint folder holding the pbix file that was first uploaded to the service.  This is important to be able to edit the original pbix and synchronise the changes to the service without having to download and republish a new pbix file.
