Dataflow execution limits?

Hi,

 

Is there a limit on how long a dataflow (custom query) can take to execute? I need to load data from a heavily rate-limited API (100 records per request, once a minute) so the run time is  quite long (30+ minutes).

 

Thanks

Re: Dataflow execution limits?

Hi @bob32 ,

 

If you are the Power BI admin, you can configure the dataflow workload in a premium capacity, see more: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-premium-workloads#dataflows.

 

You may need to improve the dataflow performance: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/SQLServer-performace-issue-will-dataflows-help/td-p/783770.

 

Or use incremental refresh for dataflow, see more detail:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dataflows-incremental-refresh.

 

Best Regards,

Amy
