Rest API POSTDATASET error 500



Im trying to use the following APi endpoint:

I've successfully registered an app through and granted all api's

Without azure portal i consent all api's and successfully logged in to retrieve an access token.


Whenever I try to execute (try) the example in the first link both on the site itself or in Postman I keep getting the following response:


    "error": {
        "code": "GeneralException",
        "message": "Failed to process dataset PostDataset",
        "target": "PostDataset",
        "details": [
                "message": "SQL operation failed: The Database operation reached a timeout of '00:01:30'"


Could someone maybe point me in the right direction?


Additional note: we currently use the trial version of Power BI.

Tried it again this morning and now it seems to work again.


Any idea what has caused this?

Weird enough 5 minutes later it stopped working again with the same error. Please someone help me out here.
