Command line to update data sources

Is there a way to update my PBIX files without manually opening and refreshing them? I'd like to have a script run and update my data.

 

Any Ideas?

 

(For why I'm not using the Power BI Online updating, it doesn't currently support my internal company OData information source, and I'd like to automate the update process)

Hi Jared,

Currently there is no way to programmatically refresh a PBIX file.

However, on-prem OData feeds should be refreshable using the Personal Gateway. Could you elaborate on what issues you found trying to do this?

Thanks,
M.

Hi All,

 

Is Power BI working on command line functionality ?

 

Personal Gateway & Enterprise Gateway are great, but ONLY for on-prem data. What we need is a way to refresh data that is being retrieved from an API on a daily basis (ie. coming from an External source which is not on our premises).

 

Regards,

Daniel

The OData sources I have do not seem to work through the Personal Gateway. I think PowerBI.com tries to access them through a public interface, which would not be possible. It must be accessed from inside my corporate network. Here is the error I get:

 

"Cannot connect to the data source"
