Power BI Refresh Dataset - DirectQuery

Hi all - 

 

I haven't seen this being discussed yet - when using the Power BI Connector "Refresh a dataset", I know that the refresh counts towards the daily limitations when in Import mode of PBI. Will there  be any limiting factors if I refresh a DirectQuery dataset by attaching a Flow to a PowerApps button to refresh it? I'd like this to basically mimic an on-demand refresh everytime the app is opened or refreshed. 

 

Thanks,
Farhan

Re: Power BI Refresh Dataset - DirectQuery

Hi @farhandsome 

 

One cannot refresh a direct query based data set from flow.

Direct query anyways provides the latest data every time the user accesses the report.
