Refresh Power BI DataFlows with Flow

Hi all, good morning! 

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to create a Flow similar to automatic refresh datasets, but this time refreshing DataFlows?

 

I want to refresh a dataflow and cascade to dataset as soon as a SharePoint file is updated. Have you heard something related to this?

 

Thanks in advance and best!

Jimmy

Hi @jimmy-pa,

 

Yes, you can use the Refresh a dataset action in PowerBi connector currently, then create a Recurrence trigger to run the flow:Annotation 2019-10-21 105924.png

You can also refer to this blog updated recently:

I hope it can help you.

Re: Refresh Power BI DataFlows with Flow

Thank you for this link! I'll need to wrap my head around the API, haha.

 

On a related note, it would be great to trigger a dataset refresh when a dataflow (or set of dataflows) finish refreshing.

 

This would give me: SQL > Dataflows > PBIS as one chain of refreshes instead of scheduling dataflows an hour after SQL refreshes start and then dataset refresh to happen an hour after dataflows start.
