connection to a cube

I have been able to connect to a cube in Excel using MSOLAP.5 provider and it works perfectly.  I have been trying to connect to the same cube using the datasource SQL Server Analylsis Services but I am getting the error:

 

unable to connect
we encountered an error while trying to connect
details: "AnalysisServices: object reference not set to an instance of an object

 

Can anyone suggest a solution ?

 

Thanks

Did you configure HTTP Access to SSAS cube? 

 

Currently, HTTP Access is not supported for connecting SSAS in Power BI Desktop.

Re: connection to a cube

Was this feature removed in the latest versions of BI? it works in the June version.

 

And do you know when it will be added back in?

Re: connection to a cube

I am looking to do the same thing.  I think this is the only way I can connect to NICE InContact data, but it does not currently work.  Would love to know if anyone was able to find a workaround.

Well i heard from the support team, apparently this feature was never supposed to work hence now that its broken, they are not going to fix it !!
