Power BI Clone and Rebind APIs now support shared datasets
Published date: 07 January, 2020
Power BI shared datasets are now supported in Power BI Embedded, allowing you to manage the connections of Power BI datasets and reports across workspaces. This capability enabled us to expand the following APIs and automate related scenarios:
- Rebind report REST API now allows you to rebind a Power BI report to a Power BI dataset across workspaces, replacing the need to create and maintain many Power BI datasets and fulfilling the organizational requirement to maintain ‘one source of truth’ in a centrally managed Power BI dataset.
Clone report REST API now allows you to copy Power BI reports across workspaces while maintaining the original connection with the Power BI dataset that resides in a different workspace (similar to Copy reports in Power BI Service).
