So I created a query in PowerBI Desktop. The data source takes a while to return back the query response (Web request returning JSON), so I add this to the query string in Desktop; [Timeout=#duration(0,0,30,0)]
This works great. I never get timeouts with this setting in place and the data comes in eventually.
I published this data source and report to the Office 365 PowerBI Pro Service, and set the autorefresh. Unfortunately, I get an failure after some amount of time. I do not believe that the Timeout parameter is being used in the Web version. I am unable to edit the query in the service, but if I copy and paste it out, I see there is no Timeout parameter.
Really need this to work. My whole project hinges on this.
