Google Analytics Error 403 (failed reporting requests is too high)

Beginning at 11:13 today a report that has uses Google Analytics connector began throwing this error:


Updating workbook ... .pbix failed. Please check additional messages in task history for detailed errors. Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'OLE DB or ODBC error: GoogleAnalytics: Request failed (403): Quota Error: Number of recent failed reporting API requests is too high, please implement exponential back off.

See developer documentation for details at


It has run for almost a year, without an issue.  Is anyone else experiencing this?  Has something changed?  I found older issues discussing this, but nothing today.


Any insights would be appreciated.

I am suddenly getting this error:


GoogleAnalytics: Request failed (403): Quota exceeded for quota group 'default' and limit 'Queries per 100 seconds' of service ''


Like with you, it's out of the blue while it used to be running smoothly before. Did you get an answer to your ticket?
