Refreshing two PowerBI datasets is causing this error Execution Timeout error

Hi,

 

I have published two reports to PowerBI services and these reports are connected to same database, same view and since I have PowerBI premium so we have scheduled the refresh for every 30 min and these two reports refresh at the same time. due to this we are facing this challenge where at certain point of time refresh is failing and throwing this error for both of the refresh.

Error Message below:

DataSource.Error: <ccon>Microsoft SQL: Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.

 these two reports refresh at the same time

Not reports - datasets.

 

Dataset refreshes are using a read-only connection and should not result in a table lock on your SQL server. 

 

If you want to spread the refreshes out you can use Power Automate to initiate refreshes outside of the standard top of the hour/bottom of the hour slots.  Ideally you can also use this to only refresh your datasets when your SQL data source has actually changed.
