salesforce connectivity - 2000 lines restriction

Hi,

 

Is there any solution to ensure ALL the rows in salesforce appear in power BI? Currently the restriction is 2000 rows.

 

I understand from earlier responses and searches that this is a Salesforce API restriction and not Power BI, but if im not wrong, this issue does not exists in Tableau, so why with Power BI?

 

Also, is connecting to salesforce objects a work around?

 

Thanks

@Anonymous,

Based on Miguel’s response in this idea, the 2000 row limit is from  Salesforce Report API but not from Power BI. You can share this feedback with Salesforce as this is fully in their control.

As a workaround for the above issue, you can use Salesforce Object connector in Power BI Desktop to pull all the rows from individual tables and recreate reports you’d like. The Object connector doesn’t have the 2000 row limit.

You can upvote the request to increase that 2000-row limitation.  The more votes, the more likely it will be changed.  Here is that link.  https://ideas.salesforce.com/s/idea/a0B8W00000GdYvXUAV/power-bi-communicate-with-microsoft-developme...

Is there a way to limit the rows (fields) from the object when connecting directly to a Salesforce Object?

@Anonymous Any chance you have a solution for this? We have pulled in a few objects, but there's due to large amounts of data PowerBI just keeps churning to return the results.  If we can limit the number of records being returned, we can vet out visualizations first.

Hey!

 

Yeah, I have found a way to bypass this problem!
