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?

Thank you!
we've decided to use AzureSQL until further notice





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.
