@rayloubayi can you test if you connect to your server with other tools like SSMS?

Hi @rayloubayi ,

Firstly, you may need to install the latest version of Power BI Desktop. Many features will be updated with the new one. And please clear the permission of SSAS and try re-connecting it.

Or you also could try to change the property of ExternalCommandTimeout to a big value rather than the default value(3600).

General properties
