Alert for Success/Failure of Data Refresh
Currently, only the owner of a dataset is alerted if there is a failure of a scheduled refresh. If that person is not online, leaves, etc, no one else know of the failure until users complain.
There should be a way to set a generic notification for failures at the admin level so more can be alerted to check into what the failure is.
The ask is for an option in the admin portal to send alerts for report and/or data refresh failures to a group or to a specific email.
We need the ability to specify additional users or groups when a refresh fails. I was really hoping the Workspace Contact List for the new workspaces would get refresh failures, but it doesn't seem like they do.
Would like to have this feature

would like to have that - this is mandatory at least on enterprise BI scale!
is this a duplicate of the following, which was raised May 2016?
Especially true for Embedded PBI

We need this as an admin feature... tracking of all datasets and all failures - whether they are live or imported, on demand vs scheduled, etc. This is how PowerPivot in SharePoint works. Why can't they do it with PBI?? We don't have a SQL backend to connect to, but we do have gateway logs and O365 logs... neither seem to provide good information on failures. And even if they did it would be difficult to create alerts off that data.
