Unable to view/edit scheduled refresh and data source with October 2017 GA update

With the newly installed PBIRS October 2017 GA, I created a scheduled refresh for an existing report that uses data imported from SQL Server and which had previously been manually refreshed in the Desktop tool.  When first setting up the scheduled refresh, I was required to enter credentials for the data source connection, which I did and tested successfully (Windows credentials already established on the source SQL Server).

 

A few minutes later, I went back to the report to look at the scheduled refresh parameters in order to get a screenshot for my documentation, and was instead presented with the following UI, which says there is no scheduled refresh.  Access to the Data sources menu item is disabled.

I took a look in the ReportServer DB, and after a couple minutes of poking I found the Schedule table with a row clearly representing the one Power BI data model refresh I had set up.

The expected bahavior is that I can see and edit both the scheduled refresh I set up and the data source parameters.

Re: Unable to view/edit scheduled refresh and data source with October 2017 GA update

Hi @johncpratt,

 

From your description, it seems the report Agency Revenue Insights exists before you upgrade the report server to October version, right? 

 

If it is, please redeploy the report then check if you can edit credential and create a schedule. See: https://christopherfinlan.com/2017/11/02/tips-when-upgrading-from-the-august-preview-to-the-october-...

Re: Unable to view/edit scheduled refresh and data source with October 2017 GA update

@v-qiuyu-msft, yes, all 3 of my prototype reports were created in the August 2017 Preview, including this one that I was trying to get the data refresh to work for.  As I indicated in my UPDATE 2 above, redeploying the report from my desktop to the server "unlocked" the data sources menu item, allowing me to reenter the credentials.  I then was able to see the existing refresh schedule.

 

I checked just now after having the refresh schedule running for 2 days, and it is working successfully.  I confirmed that new data was loaded.

 

Given these results, I would say that this issue is closed, with the solution being to redeploy the report and then enter data source credentials followed by setting up a refresh schedule.

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Unable to view/edit scheduled refresh and data source with October 2017 GA update

Hi @johncpratt,

 

I'm not able to reproduce this issue on my side. In your scenario, are you sure the you have created schedule refresh plan for the report Agency Revenue Insights? 

 

Please run this query in report server database to check if you really created schedule for the specific report:

The query you provided generated the following results.

The highlighted report is the one I created the data refresh schedule for.  The Manage UI for the report still looks the same as my original screenshot, which means I still cannot view or edit the data source I set up as well as see the refresh schedule.

Re: Unable to view/edit scheduled refresh and data source with October 2017 GA update

UPDATE:  After I got a separate report deployment issue resolved, I resaved the report from my desktop app to the server.  When I did that, the "Data sources" menu item was unlocked and the "Scheduled refresh" screen shows no schedules set up, even though your query STILL returns the same row.

 

Just to be safe, I queried "select * from dbo.Catalog c where c.Path LIKE '%Agency Revenue Insights'" and only got back one row.  So I have a phantom report schedule that does not appear on the browser screen and data source credentials that have disappeared.

UPDATE 2:  Since the Data sources item was unlocked, I reentered the credentials and tested them successfully.  I left that screen and went back to make sure they were there (they were).  I then clicked "Scheduled refresh and Voila!, there was the report schedule.  So this is looking more like a problem with saving/accessing the data source credentials than an issue with the actual refresh schedule.
