Re: FTP Datasource Refreshing

@Tanu This is most likely a two part process as PBI isn't going to be able to execute a call for your FTP file (or whatever proces you have) it picks things up from the XML file. So, if your FTP process replaces the file at a certain time, you would schedule the refresh of the dataset in the PBI Service to be after that. The PBI Service will refresh the report based on the XML file in the location that you have it.

HI @Tanu,


I think web connector with xml connector will suitable for this scenario, but I'm not so sure if power bi can recognize xml file who update by replace file.
