DataSource.Error: Requested dimensions; only 7 are allowed. Google Analytics

I am trying to use Google Analytics on Power BI.

But unable to add more metrics.

Sessions, Events and Geo location have been added.

But when I try to add other metrics like Device/OS etc, My request does not get loaded.

This is the error - 

 

DataSource.Error: Requested 12 dimensions; only 7 are allowed.
Details:
DataSourceKind=GoogleAnalytics
DataSourcePath=GoogleAnalytics
error=Record

 

How do I get more dimension access. I understand Google API's are being limited, but is there any other way to include all the dimensions?

Trying to create a live dashboard for Google Analytics.

@moreruckus,

These limits are imposed by the Core Reporting API for Google Analytics, I would recommend you consult Google Analytics support.

In addition, to create live dashboard for Google Analytics, please check my reply in  this similar thread.
