Auto refresh power bi server report

I have created a power bi report in our on premise server. This uses directquery to connect to the db. Presently, user needs to click the refresh button to see the data when changed in db.

I would like to know whether it is possible to auto refresh the report without any user interaction. I know we could use certain extensions to do this. But it will be nice if we could do this from the report server itself.

I found the following article regarding auto refresh, but I don't see these options. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The automatic page refresh feature is documented here Comparing Power BI Report Server and the Power BI service - Power BI | Microsoft Learn as being unsupported in Report Server. So your only option currently is to look at external browser extensions.
