HelloI’m trying to schedule a refresh for 2 datasets, both are live connections (import) and 1 one of them i’m sure it’s from an sql server and the other, i know i have a server name, user and password but i’m not 100% sure it’s from a sql.What i would like to know is how to schedule a refresh for both datasets. (i’ve alfready done the flows from power automate but don’t know what to do from here)Thanks all of youBest regardsPedro




When i click on show it gives me this message:“Scheduled refresh is disabled because at least one data source is missing credentials. To start the refresh again, go to this dataset’s settings page and enter credentials for all data sources. Then reactivate scheduled refresh.”One last thing: all my data sources and pbi files are in one drive


Thank You for posting your query onto the hyakkendana-hashigozake.com.

You are watching: Power bi scheduled refresh greyed out

I’m providing a link of the Microsoft documentation based onto the topic “Data refresh in Power BI” in that you can refer the sections “Power BI Refresh Types” and “OneDrive Refresh” since all your files are located in the OneDrive. And also providing a link of a video of Adam from Guy in a Cube just for the reference.

Hoping you find this useful and helps you to solve your problem.

And that’s what myself and
Greg has said. For the files that are in the OneDrive section there’s no Gateway required. In the above screenshot, he is trying to set up the connection for the OneDrive also under the Gateway section.

For OneDrive he just need to follow the steps as provided in the video and he will be able to set up the refresh options since he has already set up SQL Server under the Gateway option and the second main concern is as he has confirmed in the Post No. 4 that the file are in the OneDrive he just need to enter the appropriate credentials under the “Data Source Credentials” option as suggested in the video which is not activated right now in his case.

Thanks & Warm Regards,Harsh
