Power BI Clarifications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Im new to BI and require some clarifications on a few questions i was provided by one of my clients. Appreciate some help on this if possible,

    1. The Datasets in the Power BI Pro can only be refreshed 8 times a day. Is that the best refresh rate that is available without manual intervention? Is there an alternative for this to have a more frequent refresh rate?
    2. If frequent data refresh is not available is the direct query option available on Cosmos DB or any such unstructured database?
    3. Does Power BI pro support direct query as its not possible to select the direct query option for an SQL server DB account.  The direct query option is disabled
    4. Can REST APIs be used to refresh the dataset for a report created with Power BI pro? If so is there any limitation in the frequency of refresh?
