Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation, or the server is not responding – Troubleshooting timeouts in Power BI


Hi Folks,

When I was working with my Power BI reports, I suddenly started encountering this error. I don’t have any more clue except this error message which I could see in my Power BI Desktop as below. Initially I thought there could be some problem connecting to my SQL end point of my Dataverse connection, but it isn’t.

The error message above clearly say that the Queries are blocked. I then quickly started reviewing the model of the Power BI Report to see if there were any issues like the Relationships etc. But I couldn’t find anything in my relationships. Since I was using SQL Connection to my Dataverse, I tried to increase the Command timeout in minutes (max value being 120 minutes) from Advanced options of my connection but still the same error.

Cause: Then I quickly noticed that in my model I have fetched the same table data both using Direct Query and Import mode. So, when I was refreshing, because of the relationships, the one imported is being dependent on the one with Direct Query.

Fix: After review, the unnecessary Direct Query table was removed and voila it fixed the issue.

If anyone is facing the same problem, I strongly recommend you review the Semantic Model of your Power BI Report.
