Filter before querying. Performance issues showing data in table visualization

Hi,

 

I have a table with 4 million rows in sql server connected via direct query, and I'm trying to show the records in a table visualization, but that brings performance issues, even with filters applied.

 

In ssrs you can choose the filters and then run the report, to query only what you need, such that ssrs applies the filters first to the query and then brings back the result.   We want to limit the resulting data by using top 10000.  So we would like the filters applied first and then the top 10000 should be returned.

 

Is it possible to do something similar? To avoid bringing the whole table. Query parameters wouldn't work because they aren't available to the consumer of the report in Power BI Service.

 

How can I solve the performance issues and show the filtered records in the table visualization?

Thanks

Hi @JulianAtlas ,

 

It seems that use Query Parameter should achieve your requirement.

By my tests, if you set the workspace with edit permission and when the consumer Take over the dataset then they could modify the parameter.
