Connection with mobile application

Hi,

 

I have installed PowerBI Report Server on my computer after configuration everything looks ok. 

 

I have uploaded some pbx files to use reports .

Try removing the /browse from the end of your URL, you only need this portion of the URL http://<servername>/<vdir>

I tried that either , doesn't work. 

Hi @Marcin,

 

If you are using mobile app on Windows devices, it probably hasn't supported Power BI Report Server yet. You'll notice it prompt you to connect "SQL Server Reporing Services 2016", not "Power BI Report Server". 

 

The mobile app works fine in Android and iOS devices, and you can follow this article on how to set it up: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-mobile-iphone-kpis-mobile-reports/

 

Hi,

 

I found first reason was that my computer wasn't visable by local network , after I change this the problem with url disappeared. 

But now the problem is with the log on into server, 

I have added new user named : "report" to security options which is local user on computer where server is installed and I use its credentials why trying to log to server using this time Mobile App on my Android OS , my phone is also using WiFi the same that computer with server.

 

The error is : "There was a problem during the authentication process"

Can you try to log in using username without domain? e.g. instead of "DOMAIN\user", just "user"

I am trying in to log in  exactly in this way using 'report' as username without server name and problem stays the same. 

It says that there was a problem with authentication  not that creadentials are incorrect.

@Marcin i would think you would need the IP address?

I have tried that but it didn't help 😕 

have you opened port 80? (just a guess)

 

details should be here
