What’s New in the September Release of Power BI Report Server

This release introduces Power BI Report Server (PBIRS) for SQL Server 2022. We continue to innovate, create, and design in a way that gives everyone the ability to achieve more. Designing for inclusivity reflects how people adapt to the world around them. In this new release of PBIRS, we’ve done a lot of accessibility work to make sure we’re empowering people to achieve more. The release includes enhanced Windows Narrator support for the new Windows OS (Operating Systems) and Windows Server, security enhancements, browser performance improvements with Angular, accessibility bug fixes, support for SQL Server 2022 (16.x) Preview instances report server catalog and feature updates.

Refreshed portal

We’ve improved the Power BI Report Server portal to provide a more inclusive modern graphical interface, making it easier to deliver meaningful reporting on your data from a web-based experience. In the portal, you can view reports, Excel files, and KPIs and navigate through the elements in your report server instance. You can also use the web portal to administer a single report server instance.

Migration tool (Preview)

In this latest release of Power BI Report Server, we’re introducing the new migration tool, which connects to the web from the Power BI Report Server web portal. It’s intuitive and easy to use, making it simple for you to move your reports from on premises to the Power BI cloud service.

You can find Publish in the sub navbar:

New Publish button

Publish all reports will select all migratable content of the current folder and start the migration.

Select reports to publish opens a list view of migratable content of the current folder, and user will be able to select which of the reports / folders they want to migrate

Also Publish should show up in the context menu of every migratable item

New Server Properties

We have added new server properties to the ReportServer DB in SQL 2022. To change default configurations, you will need to update them in the advanced property dialog. The advanced properties in Power BI Report Server are like Power BI Service’s tenant settings in the Admin portal.

First, to view the advanced properties dialog, you need to connect to your report server from SSMS.
