About Direct Query & Embedded files

 

Hi everyone!

I have one question: It's worth combining direct query and embeded files?

 

I know that Direct Query is a Live connection but when you have a dashboard embedded somewhere with an iframe code It takes some time between the real refresh of data and the refresh of the dashboard.

 

Has anyone been in this situation?

Thanks!

Hi @Mozasf

Dashboards that are based on Direct Query connections have an automatic update about every fifteen minutes. If you want to have a real-time dashboard, please set up a real-time streaming dataset which is described in this article: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-real-time-streaming/ .

It looks like a great alternative.
