We have a report we use extensively and with a new fiscal year, we were rolling the model over. As we had several similar reports, it was actually faster to duplicate one of the rolled-over reports and change some filtering and visuals in a new .pbix file rather than doing the work in the existing .pbix file.
What I thought would be sufficient is replacing the existing .pbix file with the rolled-over one, and publish to the same workspace. While it did work for the dataset (got refreshed as hoped), the report stays the same - same UX, filters, visuals as the replaced .pbix had.
Is there any way I can publish the new report fully on the same link to Power BI Service? The thing is, we have a lot of users who favorited this link.
I realize this is an old thread, but I came here looking for help and want to share the solution I discovered. When I had this problem, I had inadvertently started working with a duplicate copy of a pbix file thanks to OneDrive's shenanigans. I renamed the older version to keep track, and published the new one with the old name. I ended up with two reports and data sets of the same name in my workspace and two URLs. To get the new report to publish at the old URL, I deleted the newly created report and data set from the workspace so I had only one report and data set of that name. Then I published the report again from the new pbix. I was prompted to overwrite the existing dataset at tha time, which put the new report at the old report's URL.
Hi Greg, I thought so as well; and it certainly worked like that for me in the past. This time around however, it only refreshed the dataset, while the "front" of the report is unchanged to the replaced version. Happened to me already about a month ago with a different report that didn't have a large user base, so I didn't care that much there - this one unfortunately impacts larger community 😕 Not sure if it's a bug or a feature that got implemented for some reason..
