Custom visual will not refresh on dashboard


I have a Custom Visual I downloaded from the Power BI website.  IT will not refresh the dashboard tiles.  I am pretty sure it was refreshing.  When I unpin the tile and pin does update with what the report has.

If I go to manually refresh dashboard does nothing.


Any suggestions?

Hi @mdoll ,


Does this issue resolved? if not the reason for this is When you manually refresh the databoard through Refresh button . IT will only refresh the dashboard with the old dataSet present in Cache. 


If you are using Powerbi directquery


also using web content or embedded PowerApps inside a Power BI report can show online content and there’s also real-time reports in PowerBi (
