Power BI Embedded maximum PBIX file size in Import Mode



Would love to know if there is a pbix file size limit when using Power BI Embedded.

Anyone have this information?


Thank you

Re: Power BI Embedded maximum PBIX file size in Import Mode

Hi @luissimoes,


I think the pbix file size limitation when using Power BI Embedded should be the same as the current 1 GB dataset limitation for import mode. That is to say, you should be able to import the pbix file and the data will continue to refresh as long as the data model size does not grow beyond 1 GB. Smiley Happy
