Is it possible in PowerBI embedded to connect to a JSON webservice

For one of our application we're embedding reports. We're able to upload the PBIX file via the webservice (and create a workspace, etc).


Now we wan't to update the report with the 'live' data (or maybe once a day, depending on the case). Is there anyway to do this?preferably we would like to expose a REST service for the report to access periodically or best case, we push the data to the report.


so main question:
Is there a way to adjust the data in the datasource?

So far it is not possible, to refresh, you have to mannually refresh in Power BI desktop and re-upload the pbix file.

Currently direct query(only Azure SQL database&datawarehoursing are supported.) is all we support in terms of refresh.

Check more discussion in this post Power BI embedded supports data refresh.
