Next, select the entities you want to retrieve data for by checking those entities.
Do not select any entity with the name Snapshot in it. These entities contain the state of every work item on every day since each work item was created. For repositories of any size this will lead to tens or hundreds of millions of work items which will not load. Snapshot tables are intended only for aggregation queries
At this point, if you choose Load, Power BI Desktop will load all of the data in each entity. However, this may be more data than you want. To filter the data, select the entity to filter and choose Edit. This brings up the Query Editor. For each column on which you want to filter, select it and set your filter. When this is complete choose Close & Apply in the upper left corner.
