Flush and Populate Power BI Streaming Dataset

Hello,

 

I'm looking to use microsoft flow to populate a streaming dataset every 30 mins. My content is either XML or CSV found at a web URL similar to: https://DataSourceURL.com/ReportService/DataDownloadHandler.ashx?GetParameter=here&OtherParms=here&F...

 

what I want to take place is to:

1. flush the current content

2. get the XML/CSV from the address specified

3. load the rows into the streaming dataset

 

What actions can I use to do this?

Hi @roblu001 

 

I would recommend the following. Have the information on a SharePoint list or something similar and remove all data before loading a fresh one. Then you can use the PowerBI Refresh a Dataset, and it will fetch the new data. 

 

Do you think this will work for you?

Hello,

 

I think that, no matter what, I run into the limitation of the pro licensing. I can use flow to download the CSV and put it into sharepoint, then use that csv in sharepoint, however, no matter what I can't refresh more than 8 times per day. So, whether I just have a flow to refresh an existing dataset more than 8 times per day or I use PBI service to refresh the service it won't allow more than 8 per day.

 

Thank you,
