Incremental Refresh - Unable to see Table Partitions with a Pro License

Implimenting Incremental refresh on a PRO license is now possible, but veryifying that it works is not currently possible. 

 

With a Premium Licence, you can get the workspace endpoint and open it up in Analysis Services to see the tables and table partitions created, but this isn't possible with a Pro licences, so I'm not sure how develpers are intended to implement incremental refresh with PRO.  Without being able to see the table partitions created by the incremental refresh, we're flying completely blind.

Hi there

 

You are correct in that you cannot see the underlying partitions.


What I do is to upload the PBIX with say 1 months worth of data.

 

I then configure the Incremental refresh to be for the past 2 years.

Once the dataset has been refreshed for the first time I should then see all my data for the past 2 years.


This confirms that it is working as expected.

Thanks. While I don't think that's as good as seeing the actual partitions, it at least confirms that incremental refresh is happening.
