Gateway error "Cancellation occurred when sending or receiving a request"

Gateway error


  I then tried to manually refresh the dataset via the Gateway and received the error “Cancellation occurred when sending or receiving a request.” I Googled this error and found that other people have the same problem, but I could not find a solution from Microsoft. Since there is not enough detail in the error message, the most common recommendation I saw was to open a ticket with Microsoft Power BI Support.



Error details are below.

How do we find what the exact issue is as I am facing similar issue but there is no info as to what the exact cause can be.

And I am trying to add all the tables from my database they are about 400+ tables and I have no way to find which exact table crashed in refresh

I am encountered the same issue.


What are some other reasons this could be happening?


Any suggestions?
