Feature details

We will introduce a new Power Automate action to trigger refresh of a dataset in Power BI. For customers who use Power Automate to automate collecting or storing data that is later visualized in Power BI, a common challenge was that the last step of this process, refreshing the Power BI dataset, wasn't possible to trigger from Power Automate. The complete end to end process can be automated wtih this new action.

A few examples of how this could be applied:

  • Trigger a flow when items are added or changed in a SharePoint List, then update the Power BI dataset that visualizes this list data.
  • Insert user survey responses into a database, then update the Power BI dataset that is used to analyze these surveys.
