Power BI REST API Dataflow Refreshs email notifications not generated

Hi All,


I use a Microsoft Power Automate Flow to schedule several Power BI dataflow refreshs and a dataset refresh once the dataflow refreshs are done (and not before).

To do so i have prepared a custom connector to launch the dataflow refreshs. The dataflow refreshs can be launched using the custom connector but i was not able to generate a dataflow refresh notification using the instruction [POST{groupId}/dataflows/{dataflowId}/refreshes] even though the online help describes that it is possible


My attempts include tests on the REST API Try it page


Does anyone have a solution to generate these dataflow refreshs notifications or is there a bug in the REST API?


Thanks in advance for any help !

Hello @BrunoM 

Could you share the result of you running the REST API Try it page, did it produce the notification email?


How does your flow look like with regard to your HTTP action invoking the REST API? Please show it expanded and also how the request body looks like including any other action in which you create the input to the request body 🙂

Kind regards, John
