Change BCS throttle limit of 2000 rows

One of my developers was getting a connection timeout on using an External Content Type. The real problem was that BCS has a limit of 2000 rows returned in a query. Here’s a PowerShell script to edit that limit:

$wthbcs = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where{$_.GetType().FullName -eq (‘Microsoft.SharePoint.BusinessData.SharedService.’ + ‘BdcServiceApplicationProxy’)}

 $BCSThrottle = Get-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -Scope database -ThrottleType items -ServiceApplicationProxy $wthbcs


 Set-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -Identity $BCSThrottle -Maximum 1000000 -Default 20000
