Any tips on configuring to ensure the flow is triggered everytime the dataset is refreshed? 

I've also set up a scheduled refresh (multiple times daily) on the dataset via the Power BI service but its not triggering the flow unless I test it. 🤔

@mwest Wouldnt a data alert trigger a separate flow to the original web service conifgured?

Hi @jasontran ,


can you give an overview of your entire concept / process?


@mwegener  concept is to automate csv data exports to a dedicated sharepoint folder everytime the dataset is refreshed in power bi service.  

an addition ive made is build in a datetime stamp against the filename so each refresh will generate a new file but the problem im encountering is a new file isnt being generated even though the underlying dataset is triggered to refresh 3 times/day.

it only appears to work when i test the flow and manually refresh in power bi desktop 



Hi @jasontran ,


is the service refresh executed without errors?


@mwegener No errors

@mwegener  is there any other way to do this ..i have corporate restriction to use the http and here is the error



Hi @DeepakSavanur , what kind of scenario are you trying to achieve?

I have two excel which will be automatically changed everyday with same columns. I am comparing these two excels and create these logs appended onto a table on power bi.. I was able to compare and create the log but unable to append the everyday logs to a single table. but everytime it refreshes its deleting the old file. i want to check if there is a way using flow or DAX to append the logs 


Hi @DeepakSavanur ,

this topic is not easy, because Power BI usually does a full refresh.
Imke Feldmann has made two blog posts on this topic as well. Do you know these blog posts?
