Scheduled Refresh on Power BI Custom Connectors

Kasper de Jonge shows how to enable scheduled refresh on custom connectors in Power BI:

Here is a post that is long overdue as the functionality has been available for almost a year now. Today we will enable scheduled refresh to the Strava custom connector I build before.

The trick to this is that we need to extend the code of the Strava connector with a “TestConnection” function as is described here. This will allow the Power BI gateway to know how to test the connection.

There’s just a little bit of code involved.
