Hi @Route217 ,

 

Sorry for that the information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me.

Did you mean that you try to get data from Power BI dataflow, then publish the report to service and finally fail to refresh the dataset?

 

To my knowledge, PBI's Dataflow uses Azure Data Lake Gen2 for storage.Sometimes PBI's scheduled refreshes to fail easily, so cutting down the service's scheduled refreshes to sources that actually need to be refreshed should lower incidents (e.g. web API timeouts, credential issues etc.).

 

To better understand how a dataflow refresh operation performs, please share the Refresh History for the dataflow by navigating to Dataflow > Settings > Refresh History. You can also select the dataflow in the Workspace > context menu (…) > Refresh History.
