Automatic Refresh When Report is Published

When a report is on a schedule to refresh, it automatically starts an On Demand refresh if I replace the dataset. Is this normal? 


This is rather annoying and unnecessary. For example, if I need to change a report, I'm going to manually refresh it on desktop before publishing (since the copy on is up to date from the schedule). This behavior becomes undesirable if the refresh takes awhile, so I sometimes turn off the schedule, publish, then turn on the schedule to avoid this. Just seems unnecessary. Why would anybody want this to happen?

Thanks for posting about this "feature". I have a dataset that is right on the edge of hitting the 10Gig of uncompressed data limit and was struggling to understand why after I see a "Success" message when I publish from the Desktop, I find a "Failed to refresh" message in the Service.

Hi there

I do agree that this can be a bit of a pain.

Currently the only way to turn it off is the way you described.

I think it does it to ensure that the data always has got the most up to date data once uploaded the PBIX?

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
