Slow Dataflow Refresh

Hi Everyone


Is anyone experiencing slow dataflow refreshes? Since this morning, I have a dataflow that is taking very long to refresh. I haven't edited the dataflow for at least a month and it has been working fine up to now.


A simple text-inputed table (4 rows, 2 columns) took 15 minutes to update. Another similar table took 27 minutes to update. Both of these tables are not linked to an external data source and should usually take 30s to refresh. I cancelled the refresh after about 2h30. The dataflow was not even half-way through a refresh that normally takes 20 minutes.


I aborted the second attempt at refreshing the dataflow after about an hour and the first table (text-inputed, 3 rows, 2 columns) had not yet refreshed.

Status: Delivered

Based on the discussion in this post, It looks like an issue happened in specific region Europe and it has been fixed up to now. If there is still someone has this issue and it's continuous in the case of  simple table structure and not very large data amount, please consider opening support ticket for further help.

@Anonymous I'm recently experiencing the same behavior as you where a dataflow refreshes successfully and I can view new data within it in the service; however, when I attempt to pull data from it with a dataset, any data after November 4th doesn't show up.

je souhaite faire la mise à jours des données au niveau de Power BI APP, quand j'effectue la mise à jours au niveau de PBI Desktop et je publie rien ne change au niveau de la plateforme APP.

cvillegas I think this is something they are supposed to be fixing in the November updated.  I hope it is.  I revert to the September version when this doesn't work but it's very frustrating.
