Restriction on number of queries in Power BI

Hi All,

 

There is any restriction on number queries in Power Query. We are working on a report where I need to pull the data with different filter conditions so I am creating more than 100 queries.

 

The issue is if the report contains more than 80 queries we are not able to publish the report to Power BI Service.

 

Any thoughts on root cause for this? I assuming there might be a restriction on a number of queries.

Re: Restriction on number of queries in Power BI

I haven't seen one published. Can you give me some better insight into your data? Perhaps we can solve the problem there by refactoring your data model. You should be able to just pull the data and do the filtering within the visualizations and measures.

Re: Restriction on number of queries in Power BI

Hi @Sunkari,

 

I haven't found any limitation about table amount, I think you should check your pbix file size first.

Current power bi server contains size limit of pbix file.(1Gb)

Considerations and Limitations

For all data sources used in the Power BI service, the following considerations and limitations apply. There are other limitations that apply to specific features, but the following list apply to the Power BI service overall:

  • Dataset size limit - there is a 1 GB limit for each dataset in the Power BI service.
  • Row limit - the maximum number of rows in your dataset (when not using DirectQuery) is 2 billion, with three of those rows reserved (resulting in a usable maximum of 1,999,999,997 rows); the maximum number of rows when using DirectQuery is 1 million rows.
  • Column limit - the maximum number of columns allowed in a dataset, across all tables in the dataset, is 16,000 columns. This applies to the Power BI service and to datasets used in Power BI Desktop. Power BI uses an internal row number column per table included in the dataset, which means the maximum number of columns is 16,000 minus one for each table used in the dataset.
