Back in October I blogged about using PowerShell and/or the Power BI dataflows REST APIs to trigger a dataset refresh on dataflow refresh completion. This was a new capability and was well received… but lots of people wanted to do it without needing to write any code.
For those people, Christmas came early.
This week the Data Integration team at Microsoft announced the public preview of the dataflows connector for Power Automate.
This new Power Automate connector will enable any authorized user to take action based on dataflow refresh completion, including:
- Sending a notification – so you can keep additional users and groups informed
- Trigger a dataflow or dataset refresh – so you don’t need to maintain separate refresh schedules or live with unnecessary processing delays
- Trigger a Power Automate flow – so you can do pretty much whatever you want, because Power Automate has a ton of capabilities this blog post won’t even attempt to mention
You can also use the connector to refresh dataflows and monitor dataflow refresh status.
To make it even easier, the preview includes samples for these scenarios and more. You can read all about it and get started today in this post on the official Power BI Blog. What are you waiting for?
 Which uses the APIs mentioned in the earlier blog post.
