Please provide option to stop refreshing dataset after refreshing manually...

If there are any performance issues in database this would lock down the table...

I even observed that reports doesnt get published until the refresh is done...

A pretty basic request. That is ridiculously not available. The API calls don't even work to do the same. Disappointed. Please fix.

There's an API for this, isn't there?

Just set off two refreshes due to the same update. The smaller one failed already. I've already identified the fix.


The "big" refresh will eventually fail, but I'm sat here waiting for it to do so so I can finish applying the fix. The lack of a cancel on the refresh is holding me up.

Considering there are third-party companies designing APIs specifically to fix this one issue, it's clear that MS is well aware of the problem. Some users have commented that there was a feature that allowed users to cancel the infinite refresh, but that this feature has been removed. When will this problem be escalated?

I run Power BI for my company, if I refresh my dataset an publish (due to a model change or the like), I need to refresh the desktop file.


When I've then published it, the Power BI service then refreshes it again ?!? We run on Power BI pro licences only

v

I mean, this functionality WAS PRESENT so why did it go away?


I have a refresh that is taking 210 minutes with maybe 2.3 Mb of data in the model.

Why is this under "needs votes"? Just how many votes does it need? This is a critical feature to be able to maintain sanity of the workspace where some datasets might be misbehaving causing a domino effect on the rest of the scheduled reports.

Currently waiting for a 5 min refresh which has been stuck for over 1 hour. Can't publish either. Pls make this a priority.

We have a feature released recently called Async refresh.
It is REST API based and it offers Delete verb for cancel refresh.
It’s in public preview now and feel free to give it a try if you could hook up
to rest API.
I’m one of the engineer working on it in 2021. Hope my work could help on this issue.
Also, there might be room to improve since it’s a preview feature.
Please give us feedback through support if you meet any problem.
Thank you. Appreciate the patience and help.

This is very much needed for multiple reasons outside of a Premium capacity. At least allow Power BI Admins or dataset owners to stop the refresh if something is awry.
