    Hi Govardhan,

    To get live data in dashboard you have different connections depending on the data source.
    And for refresh you have 3 options :

    >refresh before comonents are loaded -> this refreshes when the dashboard is viewed by the user.
    >on trigger -> this refreshes dashboard based on certain selection
    >refresh every -> here mention the interval after which you want to refresh the connection.

    Let us know if you need any further clarification.

    Hi Govardhan,

    In order to get a live data there are different connections which can be used in Dashboard depending upon your requirement.

    eg :

    QaaWs, Live office, BI web service, Query browser for (Dashboards 4.0 onwards).

    For more information on how to do it you could refer the following notes :

    1307556 - How to create an Xcelsius dashboard using Live Office connection?

    1838599 - How to pass multiple prompt values to QaaWS/BIWS from a dashboard?

    At the same time as mentioned by Abhilasha, there are different ways of refreshing the connections and getting the live data.

    Following is the link which could give you more detailed information about refresh option in connections:

    Let me know if this helps.

    Its all depends upon your connection and source type, Please surf in SCN before posting the question there are N number of threads are available on this.

    Webservice & XML Connectivity are the two connections which supports the automatic refresh from source without any workaround.

    Also you can use the refresh button in the dashboard to get the latest data but you need to press the refresh button.

    Check out the triggering option provide from my blog above, revert for any assistance.

    Hello Goverdhan,

    If your dashboard is based on WEBI Report, then you also need to schedule your report(frequency is as per requirement) so that the report contains the refreshed data every time you open the dashboard.
