Refresing Dataflows with Power Automate

Hi there!


I am working with multiple dataflows that shall be refreshed in a "waterfall" type.


Dataflow 1 consists of Dimension Tables

Dataflow 2 & 3 consists of Dimension and Fact Tables


This should be easy using Power Automate and its new refreshing dataflows feature as following:


Dataflow 1 (end refresh) ---> (start refresh) Dataflow 2 (end refresh) ---> (start refresh) Dataflow 3


BUT, because of the lineage of the dataflows, dimensions of DF2 and DF3 are dependant of DF1. Therefore, by refreshing DF1, automatically dimension tables of 2 and 3 are also refreshed, and the flow in power automate interprets DF2 and 3 are successfully refreshed and it STOPS. The fact tables of DF2 and consequently the fact tables of DF3 are not refreshed.


Any idea of how to refresh fact tables?
