You can set layers to automatically refresh in ArcGIS for Power BI.
Some ArcGIS feature services are updated at regular intervals. If you add one of these feature services as a reference layer, you can specify how often it is updated and redrawn on the map by enabling the auto-refresh function and setting the refresh interval for that layer.
For example, if you have a reference layer that shows the water quality of beaches in your city, you can configure the auto-refresh function so the layer automatically reloads daily to show the most recent updates for swimming safety.
Note:To automatically refresh a reference layer in ArcGIS for Power BI, set a refresh interval for the layer in ArcGIS before adding it to the visualization. Data layers cannot be automatically refreshed.
To set a layer to automatically refresh, complete the following steps:
- In the Layers list, select the layer to modify.
- Click Layer options .
- Click Auto-refresh .
The Auto-refresh pane appears.
- Turn on the Enable auto-refresh toggle button.
The refresh interval text box becomes active.
- Type a time interval in the text box or use the arrows to increase or decrease the time interval.
Specify the time interval in minutes, from 6 seconds to 24 hours. For example, 6 seconds is represented as 0.1 minute, and 1 day is represented as 1440 minutes.
- Click the Back button to close the Auto-refresh pane and view the Layers list or click Close to view the map.
