ArcGIS Maps For Power BI Not Working

We are using the September 2021 version of Power BI Desktop optimized for Report Server. We are trying to add a "ArcGIS Maps for Power BI" visual. When we place the visual on the canvas we get a "Sign in to ArcGIS" screen.





We choose the "ArcGIS Enterprise" radio button and enter the URL for the map in the text box and click the "sign in button". A screen comes up prompting us to sign in to the portal. We enter the ArcGIS login and password.




We click on the "Sign In" button. It then fails bringing us back to the orignal "Sign in to ArcGIS" visual on the canvas with multiple common.addOnLicenseRequired messages.



We are able to successfully log on to the ArcGIS Portal in MS Edge and Google Chrome. 


Does a subscription for "ArcGIS Maps for Power BI" need to be purchased? If so how do we go about purchasing one?

I am having the same problem with my ArcGIS map on power BI. I checked my licence to make sure it does include Power BI and it does. I also checked that I am using the lasest version of Power BI and I am. What could be the issue causing my map on power bi desktop not to work?
