SSAS live connection grayed out

Hi,

 

I'm testing the Power BI Report Server. I could install it and can access through the url.

 

My understanding is that for the report to upload correctly it needs to have SSAS live connection only. However, on Power BI Desktop (Report Server version) when I try to access this option is grayed out... Anyone can give me some insights to why this is happening?

I tried to upload a file with a PowerQuery-generated table as in Chris Webb's blog but it returns me the following error:

 

"We can publish this Power BI Desktop report because it contains an unsupported data source connection or embedded data. This preview version supports only Power BI Desktop reports that connect live to SQL Server Analysis Services (on-premises)".

Re: SSAS live connection greyed out

Looking at what you have in the dialog it could be one of two things:

 

  1. The name of the server has to be the server name for the Analysis Server machine, you have myreportserver. Do you have Analysis Services installed on that machine?
  2. If you do have Analysis Services installed on that machine then you may have AS installed under a different instance name. If that is the case you will need to include the instance name in the server name (ServerName\InstanceName)?

Once you have a valid AS Server name and instance in the box the option should no longer be grayed out.

Re: SSAS live connection grayed out

you can only have live connection when there are no other data sources with imported data.
