How to Automate the Publish Process

I am developing a new Power BI report that is changing almost daily.  After I make the changes I then need to publish it to 3 different locations.  I have to choose the location, then wait, then tell it to replace, then wait, then go on to the next location.  I was wondering if there is any automation such as an API, PowerShell Script, Flow, or command to the PBI desktop that would allow me to automate the publishing?

Hi @SteveDorr ,

According to your description, it sounds like you are use publish and replace to update your report contents. Why not setting a schedule refresh on your dataset? After setup these, your report data can be updated automatically.

Configure scheduled refresh

>>I was wondering if there is any automation such as an API, PowerShell Script, Flow, or command to the PBI desktop that would allow me to automate the publishing?

Do you mean use rest api to create a push dataset and update?  If this is a case, you can also take a look at following links about use powershell to invoke REST api:

BTW, you can also post these to develop forum to get better support.
