Incremental refresh error with SAP HANA



i configured incremental refresh for SAP HANA db to pull data for my report. I used the following instructions to do so:


I publish the report into a premium PowerBI service account. The full refresh of the report used to run with no issues but just very slow. Hence, it was decided to start using incremental refreshes. However, when the report with enabled incremental refresh policies is running of the service, it never ends and times out with the following error.


Did anyone had luck with configuring incremental reshresh for SAP HANA?


Last refresh failed: Mon Feb 11 2019 14:32:42 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)
Before the data import for finished, its data source timed out. Double-check whether that data source can process import queries, and if it can, try again

Based on the link you provided it ,ade me think that SAP HANA would not support incremental refreshes. Is that your understanding as well?
