Enable MySQL Data Source Encryption on Reporting Server

I have created a simple power bi report in desktop, connected to an internal MySQL (MariaDB) database, which enforces connecting using SSL (but does not require certificate files).  On desktop, the data load works correctly.  When this report gets saved to our reporting server, I cannot configure the data source for the file to connect using the same credentials & authentication mode.  I am guessing that it isn't using encryption, but needs to, and I can't find a parameter to enable to inform the server to do so.  On the desktop, there is a single checkbox to use encryption, but I cannot find the same option anywhere within the reporting server.


Reporting Server & Desktop Version: August 2018
