Connection to Report Servrer from PowerBI Desktop_RS

Good morning to all community! Thank you for let me be part of it!

I have been working some time in making dashboards with PowerBi Desktop optimized with on premises Report Server.

If I may, could someone give some help with changing the credentials and password of the remote server url? I noticed that it can only connect with a valid domain user already logged in the operating system, I have no problem with that but if I want to connect with the administrator user or other local user from the report server can it be done? when you login into the local report server site, there is no problem, but from the desktop when you type the site url it doesn't open the authentication prompt.

Thank you very much in advance!

Based on the description, it is possible that local user have access to a report server.
