Reduction of maximum rows per hit from 1000 to 100.
When a data warehouse request is submitted with multiple multi-value dimensions (e.g., various Mobile Reports), an exponential number of rows can be generated from a single hit. We are now capping the number of rows that can be output from a single hit at 100 (previously 1,000).
Starting with the May 2015 maintenance release, the option to launch Ad Hoc Analysis directly from within a report in Reports &amp Analytics will be removed.
