Same here -- dataflows that were running fine (in less than 30 min) are systematically failing since Feb the 22nd. It appears any one entity that takes more than 10 min to load now leaves the entire process hanging?

Hi all, 


Please check if these dataflows reside in a premium capacity. If it is, it's the same issue as this one in Support site.

The dataflows that we tested are not on premium workspaces.
