DataFlow is not refreshing data on report

Hello Guys!!

When im trying to update a report that his data source is a dataflow, Im having troubles when I want to add a new column that has been added to the mentioned dataflow. To a better understand what did I do?.

1.- Developed a new dataflow and added this to "production enviroment".

2.- Added to my report the new dataflow as datasource.

3.- Uploaded my report to PBI Service.

2.- Updated the dataflow with a new column.

3.- Tried to add the new column to my report but I couldnt because the new column on the report is not available.


*What is the solution?. Download a PBI copy of the report, update the data on the desktop version file and finally upload the new report, what is the problem?, this is not efficient when your datasource is very large.


Some pictures.




When I want to add the new column to the report this is not available.



Need some help!!

Hi @JoseCruzCat


After you add the new column in dataflow, please refresh both the dataflow and dataset of the report, go to edit mode of the report in Power BI service, check if the new column is here.

Hello!!! I tried to do that but it doesnt work... The only way to see the new column is downloading the PBI file and update the dataflow in my desktop.
