DataSource.Error: exceeded 100000 distinct who/what's

Hi ,

 

I'd like to connect  my report to an online service : Salesforce objects .

But I have the following error when I try to reach SFDC object ( work for account ( 250k rows) , opportunities (250k rows)  , but not for task )

 

 DataSource.Error: exceeded 100000 distinct who/what's

 

 
I tried to investigate a bit and discovered that I had to be an Admin user , but I already am ( Local Administrator (Lightning) ) .
 
Any ideas ?
 
TIA 🙂

Hi, were you able to find a solution? As a workaround, maybe you can try to test your connection with a 3rd party connector. I've tried windsor.ai, supermetrics, and funnel.io. I stayed with Windsor because it is much cheaper so just to let you know about other options. In case you wonder, to make the connection first search for the Salesforce connector in the data sources list:

After that, just grant access to your Salesforce account using your credentials, then on preview and destination page you will see a preview of your Salesforce fields:

There just select the fields you need. It is also compatible with custom fields and custom objects, so you'll be able to export them through windsor.  Finally, just select PBI as your data destination and finally just copy and paste the url on PBI --> Get Data --> Web --> Paste the url.

@Anonymous,

Could you please use Power BI Desktop  to connect to salesforce objects and check if you get same error?

In addition, the issue is related to the permission of your saleforce account, I would recommend you post the question in Salesforce forum to get dedicated support.

Lydia
