'Refresh now' URL to set it as bookmark in report

Refresh scheduling would be the best but it's limited to 8 times a day.

 

1. Is it possible to place a button in report with URL 'Refresh now' of its dataset.

2. Is it possible to use REST API in PowerBI Service?

 

Besides, I'm a little confused about the difference between Embedded and Report Server or where exactly I can use API.

Hi @jcollier,


1. Is it possible to place a button in report with URL 'Refresh now' of its dataset.


I don't think there is a way to do it currently.


2. Is it possible to use REST API in PowerBI Service?


No, the Power BI REST API is a REST-based API that provides programmatic access to Power BI dashboard resources such as Datasets, Tables, and Rows. With the Power BI REST API, you can create custom apps that push data into a Power BI dashboard. It cannot be used directly in Power BI Service.  To get started creating a Power BI app with the Power BI REST API, see What can developers do with Power BI? Smiley Happy
