Is it possible to refresh report statistics via cron job. Does Magento2 support refresh via cron feature out of the box?

Yes, it is possible.

First, pass "reportTypes" argument to your cron class by using di.xml like below

<type name="Vendor\Module\Cron\CronFile">
            <argument name="reportTypes" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="sales" xsi:type="string">Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Order</item>
                <item name="tax" xsi:type="string">Magento\Tax\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Tax</item>
                <item name="shipping" xsi:type="string">Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Shipping</item>
                <item name="invoiced" xsi:type="string">Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Invoiced</item>
                <item name="refunded" xsi:type="string">Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Refunded</item>
                <item name="coupons" xsi:type="string">Magento\SalesRule\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Rule</item>
                <item name="bestsellers" xsi:type="string">Magento\Sales\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Bestsellers</item>
                <item name="viewed" xsi:type="string">Magento\Reports\Model\ResourceModel\Report\Product\Viewed</item>

Then, in your cron file,

namespace Vendor\Module\Cron;
use Magento\Reports\Model\ResourceModel\Refresh\Collection;

class CronFile extends Collection
    protected $logger;
    protected $reportTypes;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\Data\Collection\EntityFactory $entityFactory,
        \Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface $localeDate,
        \Magento\Reports\Model\FlagFactory $reportsFlagFactory,
        \Psr\Log\LoggerInterface $logger,
        array $reportTypes
    ) {
        $this->logger = $logger;
        $this->reportTypes = $reportTypes;
     * @return $this
    public function execute()
        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();

        try {
            $codes = $this->loadData();

            foreach ($codes->_items as $codek=>$codev) {
        } catch (\Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException $e) {
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
        return $this;

Thanx. Thomas.
