Power BI Report Server - Live Connection to Azure Analysis Services

I have an Power BI Report Server and the associated edition of Power BI Desktop (September 2019). I am trying to create a Power BI report that gets data from an Azure Analysis Services tabular model via a live connection.

 

After selecting Get Data > Azure Analysis Services database and entering the database details, I'm first prompted for my credentials, but then get the following error message:

 

Cannot load model

We couldn't connect to your Analysis Services database. Double-check that your server and database names are correct, and make sure you have permission to access them.

 

Resolution of actual cluster endpoint of Azure Analysis Server: 'asazure://<region>.asazure.windows.net/<instance>' failed.

Response from server:

 

Technical details:

RootActivityId:

Date (UTC):

 

I can import data into Power BI and I can connect to the model via SQL Server Management Studio using the same credentials, so not sure why I can't create a live connection? I am working on a server that might have some firewall restrictions.

 

Power BI version: 2.73.5586.1501 64-bit (September 2019)

So I suggest you start by checking these firewall restrictions. One quick check could be to try running a client tool like Power BI Desktop or SSMS. Or if you don't want to install either of those you could also try running a query against AAS using Powershell. This will let you check if the issue is related to PBIRS or if it is a general connection issue.

As I mentioned originally, SSMS can connect to the tabular model fine. Power BI Desktop (RS) does not. I can import data from the model, but cannot connect live.

Sorry I misread your post and through you were getting the error after uploading to PBIRS
