how to have near-real-live data in Power BI report via Azure Cosmos DB

Hey everybody,

I know I can use URL to pass into power bi and import the json data and view data in power bi, but users want to see near-live-data
example : one record is updated and they want to see this change (with a trigger in azure i dont know) within 30seconds to 1 minute.

please let me know what is the possibility of real time refreshing the data from cosmos DB to Power BI

thanks !

and do you have any example or idea how fast it is ? 
only example I found is 2500 records and refresh time within a minute but we have millions of records.

please let me know if you have any experience/idea on it.
