Automated processing of SSAS tabular model through Portal
We are definitely considering this!
Running automation accounts and runbooks to do this... Please give us the option to schedule the processing of tabular models via the portal already!! Seems like a no-brainer and something that should take your devs a few hours to implement, especially considering there's an API available
Having a task in ADF to orchestrate automated processing would also be nice to have.

Today in order to refresh aas from DW, we built a custom program/utility. its one of the most complex portions of the pattern, and its disconnected from the pipeline (ADF) orchestration patterns.
Future - Need better data refresh integration between DW and AAS via a policy and or thru data factory pipeline activity. this will simplify our pattern, reduce support costs, and provide better overall data orchestration refresh status/health.
Is this functionality available?
Learning to create an Azure function in Automation is useful knowledge that could be applied elsewhere. But,...scheduled refresh through the UI is a fundamental need for an Azure AS cube. It's not a v 2.0 feature.

No updates since November 2016 ???

Azure function is a work around, but it would be great to have this functionality built into to a scheduling agent right in Azure AS.

So...any news about?
There should be an easy way to implement this in Azure Portal or an option to run a local SQL agent.
Would be nice to be able to schedule this, yes.

In the meantime what is the alternative? Do we need to write .NET code and automate this through Azure Batch / Azure Data Factory?
