Unlimited Refresh in Power BI!!

We all know that Power BI has certain limitations in terms of refreshes, 8 for Pro and 48 for Premium. We do want to get our dataset refreshed more than that right?

And this cannot be achieved by buying any licence but just using the REFRESH NOW API, only for Microsoft Power BI embedded and Premium. We had this feature in general availability long back ago but very few know about it so I thought to write on it.

Using the Refresh Now API, the limitation on the number of refreshes you can schedule per day is removed and instead, an unlimited number of refreshes can be triggered for each dataset.

Note: The time of existing refresh is not expected to be shorter, so a new refresh of a dataset cannot start before the previous one finishes. Remember that your resource limitations do not change with the introduction of this API, so use these unlimited refreshes with caution and be careful not to overload your resources with unnecessary refreshes
