Sometimes an inexperienced or malicious user can create a visual requesting billions of rows.

To avoid this scenario, an administrator can provide an upper limit on the number of rows rendered in a visual request.

  1. Click the Gear icon on the main navigation bar to open the Site Administration menu, and select Site Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Visuals option and enter a value in the Maximum data rows for visuals text box.
