Dataset with Parameter Row Limit Not Refreshing



I've set-up a parameter called RowLimit to limit the rows that are being fetched from a group of files. Basically, it allows me to control the number of rows i'm working with while on Power BI Desktop via an if statement:



if RowLimit > 0 then Table.FirstN(Source, RowLimit) else Source




Once I publish this to our workspace, I set the parameter to 0 and refresh the dataset so all the data is kept.


However, when I refresh the dataset, everything remains the same. I've also made the parameter visible on the data model so I can check if the value is being updated and it is. But the dataset is not getting updated. All of this works on Power BI desktop.

Other things that I have tried, but did not wor

  • Waiting for 30mins after I set the parameter before triggering a refresh
  • Using a scheduled refresh instead of a manual trigger
