Query Timeout Error

I keep receiving an error that my query has timed out and I can’t do anything on my worksheet. What is the next best step to get my worksheet back up and running?

Hey Zachary!

So there are usually two ways we can deal with query timeouts:

  1. Change the default timeout time for the connection you are working with. This is suggested if you don’t think the query is taking that much longer than usual. If you head into the connections section of your admin portal you can change this around. If you are an admin you will be able to do this – if not you’ll need to ask your Sigma admin to do this for you!

  1. The second option is to use Materialization to speed up performance of the dataset you are working on. If you materialize this dataset back into your warehouse it will speed up query time hopefully moving this below 120 s.
