Dataset Refresh in PowerApps Custom visual

As we know, Power BI can be integrated with Power BI. Check the below approaches.

  1. In Power Apps, we can use Power BI tiles
  2. In Power BI, we can use Power Apps custom visual.

 

This article explains the latest update to the Power Apps custom visual. Let us take a scenario.

I need to embed the Power Apps with in Power BI report. Whenever an item is added through PowerApps, I need to refresh the dataset used for the Power BI report.

For the above scenario, we need to use Microsoft Flow to achieve the result. In Microsoft flow, we need to have custom connector to refresh the Power BI dataset.

From the latest update from PowerApps custom visual, we no need to go to the above step. I mean, we no need to use Microsoft flow to refresh the dataset. We have refresh method added with Power BI integration data source itself.

It is a very good feature for Power BI + PowerApps scenarios.
