Power Automate and Power BI



I am brand-new to Power Automate and unsure its abilities. My company is migrating existing reports from excel to Power BI. Our IT team is responsible for the migration. Our data sets are mined from a  sources using MySQL workbench backend. We are looking for a way to automatically refresh the datasets so the reports would get updated too, per schedules. Right now, I am having two issues:

1- For some reason, scheduled refresh in PowerBI is disabled. I have tried to install a gateway but still not able to enable it.

2-If the schedule refresher won't work, we have to look at another solution. The solution I am looking at is Power Automate but I am not versed in PA at all. My question is, do you think PA will be able to refresh datasets when the data source database is updated?

Thank you so much in advance for any suggestion/. Thank you so much in advance!

Best Regards,


Trang Le
