Push'ed refresh fail with message: "too many refresh" but there is less refresh than limit??

I update my datamodels in a sequence where I update my data through stored procedures and after that I refresh the data by pushing the refresh.


But from time to time, not always, it says the refresh has failed due to too many refreshs, but it has only been refreshed 7 times. In the settings I have set the refresh option on the page to local time, but it looks as if the model refresh is counted by a different time than my local time setting. And another thing is that it sometimes seems as if a pushed refresh that fails (for not so obvious reasons) also count as a refresh (but not always) even though the fail is due to external things regarding Microsoft, because a retry shortly after lets the refresh complete with no errors.


So have anyone experienced this before and what was the solution?

Please provide more details. Is that on a Shared or Premium capacity?  What do you mean by "push"?  Are you initiating the refresh manually in the service or via the API or via XMLA?

We use Pro version. We refresh the reports through API (that is a push in my mind 😊)

Yeah, no. What you do is calling an API and telling it to do its thing. A push is when you supply the actual data that needs to be added to the dataset 

Thanks for the correction, but did not help me closer to a solution 🙂

Use the tenant audit log to see how many refresh requests your process actually made.

We did  and it only use 7 and we have 8

Check each of the requests. Each of them can retry up to three times.

We never get to that much retries...
