Power Bi Report Server couldn't connect to SharePoint


HI All,


Im try to connect to SharePoint via Server Report but I couldn't because the Power bi Server didn't accept my credentials  also I use another credentials  the same issue 

i see two Options only to connect (windows Auth , anonymous ) i didnt find organizational as I setup in the Power Bi file 

I use SharePoint Folder data source in the Power Bi file 

is any setup or configuration needed to do that ?
