Import from Essbase

I am connecting to Essbase in excel via a Citrix gateway. 

I was wondering to know, how can I connect to Essbase with PowerBI? There are several documentation about how to connect to Essbase directly, but none of the meniotned about the case if your Essabse is accessed via a gateway. 


I would appriciate your help

Thank you for your reply. 
As I have mentioned in my firt post, this is only for when you are connecting to Essabse directly. 
But I don't have direct access to Essbase. I have to ocnnect first for a gateway and reterieve the data from the SmartView of the Excel.

If Excel can connect to it, I wonder how PowerbI can?
