Live report or dashboard from office sensor API?

Hi all,

I have a question on working with API/datastreams. Our office building is equipped with a few sensors that measure the current temperature, co2, noise, etc. We can access this data via an Web API. So i went out and made a Power BI report with this available data and it seems to work like a charm. When I hit refresh I receive the newest temperature and sensor stats per sensor with certain timestamp.

However when uploaded to our service/online environment i would like to make the report live, so that on opening the report, the sensor data is always as recent/current as possible. When configuring the dataset parameters for the report I can only refresh the report about 8 times a day. 

Is there a way to make the report live by directly reading data from the API ?
(On opening or even every hour or every 30 minutes is also fine)

Thanks in advance!
- Stan

Hi @StanTheMan ,

 

The refresh frequency of shared capacity is 8/day. If you want a higher refresh rate, you can try Power BI premium. Please reference: powerbi-premium/#capacity-tiers
