Microstrategy for Power BI Connector

Can someone help me in understanding limitations of data pulled from Microstrategy to Power Bi using connector :-

  1. How much data can be imported from MSTR to Power BI ?
  2. Will data imported would be in memory or live connection ?
  3. If someone wanted to see live data which is available in Microstartegy, how it will be doable in Power Bi using connector ?

Hi, @Bipul 

You can import datasets with more than 4 million rows and 30+ columns. But there are other limitations:

Memory usage is limited to computer resources (RAM). So, if you have 8 GB of RAM and your report consumes 9 GB, then it will fail.

The imported data is in memory. You can learn how to connect Microstrategy to Power BI by following the following articles:
