Incremental data refresh for POWER BI Report Server

Dear All,

 

Power BI dataset was created Import mode, Please advise is there any way to process the incremental data loading in report server?

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi @AvinashPentyala ,

Thank you for @johnbasha33  answer , and I have other suggestions for you:
1.When you publish reports to the Report Server, the report and model size depends on the size of the report definition (.rdl) and report model (.smdl) files.
The Report Server itself does not limit the size of the reports you publish. However, Microsoft ASP.NET imposes a maximum size on items published to the server. By default, this limit is 4 MB

 

2.You cannot switch directly from ‘Import’ mode to Direct Query mode.

 

3. Timeout errors can be caused by network delays or server loads.If you connect the SQL Server , you can see the link:Timeout expired messages when connecting to SQL Server - SQL Server | Microsoft Learn

No, incremental refresh is not available in Power BI Report Server. However, you can use SQL Server Analysis Services tabular to do incremental refresh on-prem and live connect from your PBIX reports.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution! Appreciate your Kudos !!

Okay, What is max size limit for data set in report server? is ther any way to change to Direct mode from Import?

 

Also, facing issue with data refresh in server level, Table has around 25M records getting connection timeout error.
