REST API schedule to refresh Power BI dataset RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I use REST API to post action to refresh Power BI dataset. and scheduled with Azure Scheduler. 

    Action: https

    Method: Post

    Url: https://app.powerbi.com/groups/44bc4cee-f665-4ee8-8e54-4130a4ae9fff/datasets/<datasetid>/refreshes

    UserSetting: I added on our Power BI pro service account as owner in Scheduler. 

    I scheduled 6 times per hour. from job status, it is all successful status. 

    But when i access into Power BI to check on report. I am sure the dataset is not refreshed. It is still old data. 

    Anyone can tell me what is going on? Why job status saying it is successful, but PowerBI doesn't show the refreshed data?

  • Are you seeing this behavior consistently or does the dataset eventually refreshed at a later time? I am aware Power BI has its native but configurable refresh intervals. It is possible you are hitting a race condition due to the scheduled interval conflicting with Power BIs refresh frequency?
