How to stop manually a scheduled refresh on PowerBI Web

Hello,

I have setup several datasets to update via scheduled refresh. Sometimes a refresh process that typically lasts 10-15min gets some problem and doesn´t finish succesfully. In the meanwhile it that schedule refresh keeps the status as in progress for 2 hours and I cannot start an manual refresh while that scheduled refresh hasn´t finished.

 

How can I proceed to manually stop a refresh that is currently running?

 

Best regards,

Igor

Hi @igorfurnas,

 

The scheduled refresh in the Service side is a cloud Service, which we can't control it manually for now. But we can control the gateway. Therefore we could stop the refresh in many ways. I restart the On-premises Gateway to stop the refresh in my test of on-demand refresh. You can try it for the scheduled refresh. 

 

Edit: I shut down all the gateways of my account, the scheduled refresh stopped.

Hi @v-jiascu-msft,  thanks for your answer. That's helpful in some cases. In my situation I can´t always solve the problem that way since I have several datasets being updated via that gateway, If I restart it I may end up killing the refresh process of other refresh operations that are runnig at the same time. Are you aware of other ways to manually terminate a specific refresh?

 I am experiencing the same issue as you. Seems like it's been 2 years and no fix yet...

This is a serious feature missing from Power BI and it truly creates issues and hinders processes! 😕
