How can we improve Power BI?

Option to disable parallel loading or limit data source connections.

Currently the on-premises gateway opens more Oracle connections that we have license for.

    this is such a ball ache.
    even in dev, without the gate way, it fails.
    cant we get the option of doing one table at a time. in query editor, I do it that way. But close and apply tries to connett all at once.

    I believe you can do this by modifying the gateway config file per this posting:

    Here are the steps to change this configuration:

    On the gateway machine, open the file: [Program Files]\On-premises data gateway\Microsoft.PowerBI.DataMovement.Pipeline.GatewayCore.dll.config
    Find the “MashupDefaultPoolContainerMaxCount” setting.
    Change its value to the desired value.
    Save and restart the gateway.

    Changing this property value to 1 means that all queries will run sequentially, which could be desired for specific data sources that don’t support or don’t perform well with concurrent requests.

    I am having the same issue with a TeraData database. System Admin said to see if there was a way to end sessions once query ended as sessions were remaining open for 20 minutes and causing connection limit to be reached.
