"Refresh all" fails cuz 1 table is temp unavailable. Way to have Power Bi skip over failures?

Hi,

 

I have a report that loads 23 tables.

 

One of those tables sometimes fails to compile on our server.  When that happens, "refresh all" will fail, and nothing will refresh.

 

I can go in and manually refresh the other 22 tables, but that's a bit of a pain.

 

Is there a way to make Power BI, when it can't refresh 1 table, just skip over it and continue refreshing the rest?

Hi,

 

It seems that it can't pass the failure table dynamically. But there is a workaround. We can change a property of the failure table to exclude it from “Refresh All”. Have a look in the picture. Hope this would help. You also can support or vote an idea to make this better in here:https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/15575454-extend-include-in-report...

  1. In Query Editor;
  2. Right click the failure table.
  3. Uncheck “Include in report refresh”.
