Incremental Refresh

Do we have any experience with powerbi Premium?
We would like to use incremental refresh feature in daily hours, but once a day we have to schedule a full refresh, is is possible?
Any comment in the documentation and we don't have a premum tenant for test, anyone used it?

Re: Incremental Refresh

Hi there

Currently the way Incremental refresh is managed it will only do a full refresh on first load, after which it will only then do an incremental refresh based on your settings.

I have heard that when XMLA is made available you will have better control via XMLA on how to process partitions.

Re: Incremental Refresh

I had access to PBI Premium server and I can confirm that currently there is no way to schedule/trigger a full refresh of an incremental load dataset.

Incremental Refresh

We have 5 tables introducing incremental refresh having a 13 months range and we are using a small dataset. Unfortunately, the scheduled refresh are always failing (timeout issues). We also tried using views for those tables to view the native queries of each table but the refresh still fails. What do you think is the issue? And what would be the possible solution for this?

Re: Incremental Refresh

Hi there

What happens if you run the query on your source system how does that run?

Re: Incremental Refresh

We set a daily Incremental Refresh to a 120M dataset.

It takes data from a SQL server via MS gateway.

All works fine but each refresh spend about 20 minutes. 

If we set a standard refresh on a copy of dataset (same endpoint, same hour...) it takes same time.

It looks quite strange...

 

Today standard refresh takes less time than incremental refresh. I cannot believe it!

What should I check?

Re: Incremental Refresh

Hi there

Are you sure that your query is being folded back to the SQL Server system?

And that the incremental refresh is correctly set up?
