Unable to refresh Excel Hosted in Power BI Report Server

Hi,

 

I have an Excel saved in Power BI report server web portal that connects to SSAS cube. When i refresh the pivot it throws the following error: "This workbook contains external data connections or BI features that are not supported"

 

The Office web apps server is already configured to allow external connections. Is there anything I'm missing?

Is the machine account of the OOS server an SSAS admin? This link might help:
