Hi @rw-brusnika,


There is a limitation on Big Query side: 


API requests per second, per user — 100
Concurrent API requests, per user: 300


Please ensure you don't hit this limitation, see:


Also please try to refresh in Power BI desktop for the same report to see if any error occurs.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft


I'm having the same issue as above, and i'm only fetching a couple of rows from 3 different tables. 

Its weird that when i referesh from the PowerBI Desktop i'm not having any issue, but when i'm refreshing from the Web app i'm having the issue. It seems like a bug in the  web app?

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft

This error repeat on power bi desctop when im try refresh all big query tables.

How i can solve this problem?

Helper IV

Same here. The issue started only recently.


I can get this message 20 times when trying to refresh. Then I refresh for 21st time and it goes through.


Not sure where the problem is but it's super annoying.

@HI @v-qiuyu-msft 

based on everyones input, do you think we should report this as a bug? 

Not applicable

We are experiecing the same issue.

Further, the request cannot be seen in the Google Cloud Console, where I would have expected it to show as an error due to quota limitations.

I am having a similar issue. This is the first time I am trying to connect since installing PowerBI.

We experience the same Issue since 2 weeks: sometimes the refresh works; most often it doesn't. 
How can we solve?

Same thing here. Breaks my automatic refresh about once a week. Has anyone report this yet?

Helper IV

My observation is that I get this error in very complex datasets with many merges & appends when the source tables sit in Big Query.


When I refresh simple datasets with no lookups/appends, I am able to download even 50M rows from Big Query tables via Power BI with no issues.
