Power BI Embedded New (Power BI Workspace) Using import data not direct query can we refresh data

There was a question posted dated 08-03-2016 --https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/Power-BI-Embedded-How-does-it-refresh-reports/m-p/55375/h........

"How can I ensure that Power BI reports published in Power BI Embedded shows the latest data via refresh? How would it work if a report is doing data import or DirectQuery?

 

  • If report is importing data - Does this work with Power BI embedded? How do I configure the scheduling of the data refresh in this case?
  • If report is using direct query - How does it work in Power BI embedded? I know that the gateway works with PowerBI.com service -- but Power BI embedded?"

Answer at that time was - 

  1. " If report is importing data, recreate a pbix and re-import it to workspace, no schedule refresh."

 

My question is will situation be same with new Power BI Embedded (Replacement of Power BI Workspace) or we can schedule or refresh data when report is build with import data?

Thanks for your reporting. So far the information is very limited, I don't find any new refreshing feature in the updated documenation. I'm going to consult this internally and would post back if there comes any update.
