Takes too long in publishing a Power BI Report

Recently, we experienced too long to publish a report in Power BI Desktop. Some reports it takes more than an hour. What are the causes of this issue? Is there an issue with Power BI Desktop App right now? Please share your solutions or answers. Thank you.

Status: Investigating

Hi @kareeman31 ,

 

You may optimize this by following methods:

Here are some possible causes and solutions:

1.Network Issues: Connectivity problems or network restrictions can prevent Power BI Desktop from publishing to the Power BI service1. You can try accessing other websites or running an internet speed test to ensure that your internet connection functions reliably

2.Firewall and Proxy Settings: If you’re behind a firewall, using a proxy server, or using antivirus/security software, make sure that your network configurations allow Power BI Desktop to connect to the Power BI service. Work with your IT department or network administrator to add Power BI URLs to your allowlist.

3.Cached Data and Credentials: Clearing cached data and credentials might help. In Power BI Desktop, go to File > Options and settings > Options. Under GLOBAL, select Data Load, and then select Clear Cache. Also, go to File > Options and settings > Data source settings, and then select Clear Permissions to clear any cached credentials.

4.Dataset Permissions: Be sure that you have the permissions that are needed to access the published dataset1. Check with the dataset owner or administrator to verify that you’ve been granted access.

 

Sometimes, the issue might be with the Power BI service itself. You may try republish the report under a different name and then using pin live page as dashboard. You can also try removing access to people you’ve shared the report with, meaning none of your users will be accessing it, and then publish from desktop and see if that speeds up.

Make sure you’re using the latest version of Power BI Desktop. 

 

Best regards.
