Power BI REST API for Capacities - Syntax for $filter with nested json

I am trying to filter the admin capatities api for the nested status of the last refresh, but am having trouble with the syntax for the api call. Here is an example of a call that doesn't work.  I have tried many different delimeters with no success.  I have provided an example of the response below.  The short question:  How do I filter on just the lastRefresh status?


refreshables_url = "$filter=lastRefresh/status eq Failed


The below documentation only shows a filtering example at the top level.

Thanks for post!  I have used the dataset API before and then looped through the output in my PowerShell.  I was hoping the Capacity Refresh API allowed me to do this within a single call, using the nested json output in the $filter.  My alternative using this API is to pull back a day's worth of refreshes into an object variable and drill down to the status within PowerShell.  Thought I wouldn't have to do that, but maybe the code behind the API doesn't allow to filter on anything nested in the response.  It would just be good to know this in their documentation so I am not wasting my time trying to figure it out.

Just leaving this here for others:


Status is an enum:

'Unknown' is '0'

'Completed' is '1'

'Failed' is '2'

$filter=(cast(lastRefresh/status, 'Edm.String') eq '2'

$filter=(lastRefresh/status eq Microsoft.PowerBI.ServiceContracts.Api.DatasetRefreshHistoryStatus'2')
