I have a power BI report which is using 'import' mode on data from Azure SQL database.
I understand that there's a new feature released not too long ago, where user is able to set the 'command timeout (in minutes)' in Power BI Desktop.
As such, i have set my report to have timeoutof 240 minutes (4 hours) - ** Note: I have taken out the server and database names in this display**
However, when i deploy the report to the power BI service workspace, i get an error on refresh timeout
**Last refresh failed: Mon Jun 24 2019 07:40:54 GMT+0800 The refresh operation failed because it took more than 120 minutes to complete. Consider reducing the size of your dataset or breaking it up into smaller datasets**
1) Does the command timeout setting in Power BI Desktop persist for the Power BI Service report? Or is the command timeout set in Power BI Desktop only applicable to data refresh in the desktop version, and is overwritten to default 120 minutes when published to Power BI Service? (Note that we are not on premium workspace)
Thanks for the confirmation. I have kind of guessed that the timeout parameter does not persist in the Power BI Service side, and the default 120 minutes timeout on Standard workspace could not be overwritten, unless the tenant moves to premium.
