Allow Users to do Manual Refresh

It's becoming pretty clear to me that scheduled refresh is not going to be a good option for us. We have a beast of a SQL server but scheduling 36 data refreshes is putting it on its knees. Too many bugs in the Data Gateway.

 

My question is simply this - shouldn't I be able to disable the scheduled refresh (already done) and allow the user of the report / dataset to trigger a refresh manually, when they are viewing their report? If so, how is that done?

Hi @StephenMEMC 

You may go to 'Settings'->'Datasets' to turn off the schedule refresh.

Re: Allow Users to do Manual Refresh

Hello @v-cherch-msft ,

 

Yes, I've already done that. The more important point here is can I allow the users to trigger a dataset refresh manually/on-demand?

Hi @StephenMEMC 

I would suggest when you set up the Data Source in the Data Gateway, you would need to add them into the Users List for each Data Source that is linked to your datasets.Please have a look at below article.

Re: Allow Users to do Manual Refresh

Hello @v-cherch-msft,

 

As a test, I added a user to our gateway. When I log in as that user, he still has no ability to trigger a manual refresh of any of his datasets.

Re: Allow Users to do Manual Refresh

Hello @v-cherch-msft,

 

This issue has come up again and I need to see if I can get a resolution. I know it's been a little while since we corresponded. Is there anything we can do to get this working? 

 

Thanks.
