This is because @v-yohua-msft is wrong.

 

If you check the documentation link I provide none of the cloud sources that require OAuth2 authentication (like Sharepoint Online does) are supported for scheduled refresh.

 

You can do scheduled refresh from the on-prem Report Server to on-prem Sharepoint, but not to Sharepoint Online.

Hi, @Sofinobi 

Yes, you can schedule a refresh from a SharePoint file in Power BI Report Server.

Scheduled refresh for Power BI reports allows the report's data to be kept up to date. This feature is specific to Power BI reports with embedded models, which means you've imported data into the report instead of using a live connection or DirectQuery. When importing data, the data is disconnected from the original data source and needs to be updated to keep the data up-to-date. Scheduled refreshes are ways to keep your data up to date.

You can check the following link:
