Automatic page refresh in power bi report server

i need to achieve 15 minutes page refresh such that it should refresh automatically and not by manually clicking on any button. The report needs to be viewed on a screen and no user will be interacting with it and it should refresh automatically. Am using import method in my data connection.

@Anonymous since your data model is in import mode in addition to implementing a scheduled refresh as suggested by @KBO to update the imported data you would also need to trigger a refresh of the browser page if this report needs to update with no user interaction. There is currently no built-in way to do this in Report Server as the automatic page refresh feature supported on the cloud service is not currenly support on Report Server. The only work around that I've heard of people using are things like Chrome extensions which will trigger a page refresh based on a schedule.
