refresh data from the server

Hello,

 

I try to understand. 

I can refresh dataset data from the server using sql connection.

I tried to refresh dataset data imported from folder, but it is not supported. So I moved my data to a sharepoint and I connected the sharepoint to power BI. After publishing the dataset and the report I put the credentials sharepoint to the dataset settings but I don't see that the refresh from the from the server is really doing his job. After refreshing I don't see the new data added to the sharepoint before.

Is there is a way to use the refresh from server for sharepoint data? 

What are the option to be able to make the refresh from server without using SQL DB

Thanks!

Hi @enath ,

 

If a File or Folder data source is used and the file path is a local path (e.g. C:\Users\user\Documents), then a refresh plan cannot be created. The path must be a path the report server can connect to like a network share. For example, \myshare\Documents.

If my answer is helpful to you, it would be great if you could accept it as a solution.‌‌ 😉
