Scheduled refresh limitations by user or by gateway for Power BI Pro?

Hi all,

 

We plan to set up an on-premise gateway for automatically refreshing dashboards. I was however wondering wat the limitations are with regard to the maximum amount of refreshes.

 

The pricing page (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/nl-nl/pricing/) mentions 8 refreshes a day, but does this apply on a per user base or is this an organization limitation.

 

e.g. if there are 5 Power BI Pro users, do we have a limitation of 40 refreshes a day or 8 refreshes a day?

 

 

Thank you for your feedback

Re: Scheduled refresh limitations by user or by gateway for Power BI Pro?

@sarah_m limit is per dataset refresh basis.

 

Assume you have two reports published and you can set 8 time refresh of each report, so theoratically , it is 8 time x 2 reports, but each dataset cannot be refreshed more than 8 times.

 

And same rules apply if other user in your org publish the report, assume 10 reports are published by 3 other users, so each report can be configured to schedule 8 times a day. Hope it helps.
