Update version of a report in APP without changing link/url

Is there a way to update te version/make canges to a published report in a workspace app without changing the link?

 

I assume it may be in deployment pipelines which I don;t ave access to, but am hoping there is a way to do this that I am missing. 

 

Previously on a report server I could jst replace report with new version retaining the link, bu in the cloud this feature does not appear available?

 

Aprpreciate any advice

Yes. That will create a new URL. Every report you publish gets a unique GUID and that GUID gets a URL.

 

Just overwrite your old report with the new one - the GUID will remain the same. Then update the app. Your end users will never notice, other than they will have the new report.

The link never changes. When you update a report, it overwrites the previous report and the URL remains the same. If you publish it in an app (best practice) same thing - the URL to the report in the app never changes.

Where are you seeing it change? Are you deleting then publishing? That will cause a new URL to be created.

o Yes I am seeing this in the app. When I have a report in the APP, I want to add an update,  I thought I had to remove the previous one and add the new version.  This then causes a URL change.
Am I doing this wrong,  will it autmatically overwrite the previous version if I add a report of the same name?

 

Yes. That will create a new URL. Every report you publish gets a unique GUID and that GUID gets a URL.
