External Data Refresh Failed - Windows Authentication and user credentials could not be delegated.

k58486_0-1707832140999.png

 

 

The error message is :  

"The data connection uses Windows Authentication and user credentials could not be delegated. The following connections failed to refresh: "

 

Users get this message whenever they try to connect to an SSAS tabular Model from an Excel workbook hosted on our Power BI Report Server.

 

Has anyone seen this before? Help!
