  • It's currently possible to use an FTP URL through the "From Web" choice by using an FTP URL. However, this isn't supported when refreshing data in Power BI.

  • Hello Curt,

    Do you mean that, using "From Web", the file could be used once but any change in the source file will not refresh the report?

    Please confirm.

  • I mean that you'll be able to refresh it manually when running in Power Query, Excel or Power BI Desktop, but you won't be able to schedule a refresh in the Power BI service.
