Automating Table-Level Refresh in Power BI

Dennes Torres digs into a challenge:

The refresh schedule on the Power BI portal is made at the Dataset level. This means all the tables refresh on the same schedule. Some models may not have a problem with this, but many models will. This article explains how to automate table level refresh in Power BI.

This refresh schedule means you will be creating a bigger workload than you really need compared to a refresh at the table level if it were possible.

There are some options to ignore and work-around this, and there is one option which will require more effort but can solve the problem. This article will analyse these options and go deeper into how to build custom refresh automation solutions.

Read on for a detailed solution.
