Refreshing a report on the PBI Service

Hi,

  1. I created a report on the PBI Desktop which is on my local drive.
  2. I published the report to the PBI Service.
  3. I made changes to the Desktop PBI file.
  4. I want to refresh the version that is on the PBI Service (not to re-publish)
  5. I cannot install a gateway.

Is there a way?

 

Thanks,

Tamir

Re: Refreshing a report on the PBI Service

@Tamir,

What is your data source? If you connect to files such as Excel, CSV, you put files to OneDrive or SharePoint Online. This way, after you publish Power BI Desktop file  to Power BI Service, it doesn't require gateway to refresh the dataset in Power BI Service.

Otherwise, you would need to re-publish PBIX file. If you don't want to manually re-publish PBIX file, you can leverage Power BI REST APIs to automatically publish PBIX file.

Re: Refreshing a report on the PBI Service

If you want the (non-data) changes you made in PBI Desktop then the only way is to re-publish it to PBI Service.

 

The data in PBI reports in PBI Service can only be refreshed by Scheduled Refreshes (via data gateway) or manually refresh the data in PBI Desktop and re-publish the report to the cloud.
