  • Hi Ok-hee,

    It seems that schedule refresh of PBI dataset. You.d better create report and publish the .pbix to Power BI service. After you publish the report to service, you want to ensure end users see the updated report data, right?

    I assume you import Power BI Desktop file from a local drive, data, along with all information about the model is loaded into a dataset in the Power BI service. When we refresh the dataset, Power BI uses information in the dataset to connect directly to the data sources to query for updated data it then loads into the dataset. For more details, please see: Refresh a dataset created from a Power BI Desktop file on a local drive.

    >>and disable auto refresh?

    What's your mean of it?It's confusing, please share more information for further analysis.
