I am running into an issue while creating a power bi report. My data source is Azure SQL. While creating a connection, I am seeing the load time is super slow.
Even with a query like "Select count(*) from [mydb]", it takes like 1-2 mins sometimes. The same query in the actual db takes like 1ms. The table itself has ~1500 rows. I am not sure what's going on.
Can someone help with this?
Since your datasource has only ~1500 rows, It could be a network or server problem or hardware performance issues.
