Auto Report page refresh for Informix ODBC connection

Hi,

We have numerous power bi reports that have live informix ODBC connections and these datasets are set to refresh every 15mins in power bi service Unfortunatly for the end user even when the dataset refreshes the report page does not so the user has to click refresh on their browser or close and reopen the report. Is there a solution available whereby we can get the report pages to automatically refresh without this interaction? i can see that the page refresh option only seems to be avialable for direct query.

 

Regards

Hi @simple1966 ,

 

 

That is correct the reports will not AUTO REFRESH.

You either have to click on the refresh button or interact with the report to get the changes.

This is currently by design.

With that being said the Dashboards will auto update when the underlying data is updated.

 

Please refer to the topic.

Maybe even if a report refresh API could be developed that would be great!!
