Dataset not refreshed unless duplicate column is created

I am getting a strange behaviour from Power BI lately. 
There are multiple files and they are located on sharepoint. I wanted to create and automatic refresh with Power automate with HTTPs get request as trigger. In PBI Service it is stated that dataset is refreshed but the chnages are not visible. Then I tried to manually refreash via Desktop but also nothing. I went into querry editor and when I duplicated the column which had updates, the updates became visible in both copied column and original one.

Are you using scheduled refresh or do you rely on the automatic refresh done for Sharepoint sources (roughly once an hour) ?

@lbendlin none, I created a Power Automate flow with manual trigger, so when the user clicks the button it should refreash the dataset.

The users can trigger the dataset refresh, but they have no idea when the refresh is complete, and they will have to manually refresh their browser to see the changes.

@lbendlin So that is not the issue. In my original post I stated 

Then I tried to manually refreash via Desktop but also nothing. I went into querry editor and when I duplicated the column which had updates, the updates became visible in both copied column and original one. 

 

So even if i manully trigger refresh in Desktop the changes are not visible. They do become visible when I got to Power Query editor and duplicate the column. Which is really strange. 

 




How did you verify that the dataset refresh had completed?
