How to click refresh data button every 5 minutes using microsoft flow?

Hi,

 

I have a dashboard in Power Bi online and I have scheduled refresh every 30 min., however I would like to have the data refresh more frequently (3 min). I'm thinking I could create a flow using microsoft flow app to automatically click the refresh button every 3 min, can anyone please help me setting it up?

 

thanks

Layra

Re: How to click refresh data button every 5 minutes using microsoft flow?

HI @LauraBueno,

It is impossible to enable such short frequent scheduled refresh. 
I'd like to suggest you use real time streaming dataset or push dataset(manually push new records to dataset), they were more quickly than a scheduled refresh.

Hi @LauraBueno ,

 

no way....

"Power BI limits datasets on shared capacity to eight daily refreshes."
