Has anyone gotten this API to disable a Direct Query refresh that is enabled?

Datasets - Update Direct Query Refresh Schedule


Has anyone got this to work?

Trying to run this API and using the example on the Microsoft site:

With this JSON Body: 
{ "value": { "enabled": false } }

This always brings back a 400 error:
{"error": {"code": "BadRequest","message": "Bad Request","details": [{"message": "Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: nullableType","target": "datasetDQRefreshSchedule"}]}}

Thanks for replying. 
I have reviewed all of the links you provided.
I tried the suggestions in all, with no success.

I am first trying to disable a scheduled Direct Query Refresh in the Leaning Microsoft test page.

And this is also not working here either.
I am using the exact JSON body in the example:

Hi  @mbutler71 ,


Make sure that your request contains all required parameters and that the access token used has the necessary permissions (The user must be the dataset owner).

There may be issues with the body of the request, be careful with how the attributes are set, make sure there are no trailing commas or syntax errors in the actual body of the request to be sent, and the JSON structure needs to conform to the API's expectations.
