Need the ability to stop or pause a data refresh from Power BI online scheduler.
If there are many reports running at the time and one report seems like a resource hog, you would want to pause or stop a refresh so that another report can finish.
The inability to prevent the data from refreshing is vital during the development of a report that references a large dataset. Each time a change is made, we get another query and they stack up in suspended status waiting for queries to finish. Please give us the ability to stop or pause the refresh before our DBA goes nuts.
The ability to stop a refresh is vital!
I support this feature to be included in PBI services.

Additionally, it would seem very very useful to have
- a more general "stop all automatic calculations" option
- an ad-hoc "compute now" buttom
to allow a user to enter the DAX for multuiple new computed measures / columns etc.
The user coud then either signal to the system either :
a) press the "compute now" button
b) change the general setting back to "automatically compute"
This would really be a great functionality, because of many reasons. E.g. You can not publish changes to reports when refresh is running in the service, and sometimes the refresh runs with errors due to e.g timeout.
In these cases a simple pause/stop functionality would save alot of time.
Would be nice just to have a big button to pause all refreshes in a tenant to make server maintenance easier.
OMG, is really needed to refresh previow every single time a small little tweak is done in the model? it would take years to tailor any report.
Can't upload a report until refresh finishes - wastes my time... Please add this feature.

Would also love this feature especially for troubleshooting purpose :(
I need to be able to block refreshing a dataset while allowing others to refresh so that subledger data can tie for month end to the GL.
It would be very useful have this feature, please make this possible. Thanks in advance.

Please add this feature. Stopping the gateway is not a solution. Thanks.
Please add this feature asap! Thanks in advance.
This is a big request as its a very basic feature. Right now one of my reports its been running a scheduled refresh for 1.5 hours. Can't upload anything now into the service, can't fix any issues - nothing. It has to be a way of killing the process. This report is not connected to any data gateway as its reading from SPO
This is such a basic feature that is needed.
I'm having the same issue right now.
I started a manual refresh 45 minutes ago to test changes, and it is still running while the scheduled refresh, set to start 15 minutes ago, is also trying to run. Now they both say they are in progress and I am unable to stop either one.
Having the ability to stop any currently running refresh would be a huge improvement.
any solution to this issue?
My usual refresh on a dataset takes ~5 mins. When one is running way long, I cannot stop the refresh from continuing.
