Python on Scheduled Refresh
On PowerBi Desktop we can get data using Python Scripts, but after published we can't schedule a refresh data for this connection. The PowerBI returns:
"Query contains unknown funtion name: Python.Execute."
It would be better if all features on desktop would work on web too.
Yes! This is very much needed if the python feature will be of use to our company.

Yea I was assuming this would be possible in the Service at the same time as the Desktop.
I also need this ASAP. Pls.

We need this ASAP!! Please
This is a very good idea that MS should implement.
It's cool to have Python in Power BI Desktop, but if it doesn't work on Power Bi Service, it's pointless!
Seriously!? Why would you even put this in preview and not have the the web/service be able to utilize it? Virtually useless...
I just had to rewrite a huge python script in R because I thought that it would be supported instead of only partially supported. Should really let people know that it's not ready in the service.
Also the Python visualizations don't work once the web app is published

Exactly this. Not having the ability to run Python via the web access is a great hindrance. Please add this capability
