Hi @v-yingjl ,

 

I had found circular dependency between the relationships. so that was causing the issue.

Thanks for your tips. That made the pbix optimization.

 

Best Regards,

Re: Refresh in powerBI desktop getting stuck

Hi @kamalbandam .

Maybe you can try the following checklists to exclude:

  1. Please try to reduce the size of model like unnecessary measures
  2. Please try to disable 'Include in report refresh' in edit queries to reduce unnecessary refresh refresj.png
  3. Please try to reduce the dataset
  4. Please try to check the network status
  5. Please try to recreate a pbix file which is the same as this to refresh
  6. You can try to configure incremental refresh

If above all not help, you can post more details like screenshots for further help.

Re: Refresh in powerBI desktop getting stuck

Hi @kamalbandam ,

When refreshing in power bi desktop, did it always get load and get stuck for a long time so that you cannot do anything for it like creating measure or column? Or when creating and deleting measures did it show any error message?

Willing for further help.

Hi @v-yingjl 

 

Not every time. Only for this particular file. It is getting stuck. and getting not moving further. if I do not use refresh and just trying to save it, then it is giving the following and getting stopped.Screenshot (178).png

Re: Refresh in powerBI desktop getting stuck

Hi @kamalbandam ,

Hmm...maybe you can clear the permissions in data source settings and try to connect to the file in a new pbix file to test refresh again if it is convenient to recreate all the measures or necessaary measures.
