Refresh Now API provides unlimited data refresh for Power BI Embedded

Posted on Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Using the ‘Refresh now’ API, the limitation  on the number of refreshes you can schedule per day is removed and instead  an unlimited number of refreshes can be triggered for each dataset. Combining the refresh now API with incremental refresh, you can build a near real-time dataset that performs small updates of fresh data very often.

Note: The time of existing refresh is not expected to be shorter, so a new refresh of a dataset cannot start before the previous one finishes. Remember that your resource limitations do not change with the introduction of this API, so use these unlimited refreshes with caution and be careful not to overload your resources with unnecessary refreshes.
