Hi all, did you know that the Analysis Services Connector doesn't allow Q&A?, am I doing something wrong?

No, you aren't doing anything wrong. Straight out of the box it doesn't work for on prem, link here: (Third bullet under "Important")

The reason for this is that Q&A currently relies on the data model being available in our back end (in the cloud).  When using the AS Connector, the Data Model resides in your environment and Q&A isn't aware of it, so it can't use it.
