How to connect to Exchange server

Hello, we need to use report server to get dashboard of some mailboxes statistic information. but always get error "the evaluation requires a permission that has not been provided. Data source kind: Exchange . Data source path: Permission kind:'redirect'' is there any configuration required to connect report server to on-prem Exchange servers? any service account or permission required for this connection? I searched document site, look site no such information.
Not applicable

Do we have any workarounds for this as on today?

Unfortunately Microsoft Exchange is one of the data sources listed here that does not currently support Scheduled Refresh. I'm sorry, but I'm not aware of any work arounds for this.

Hi d_gosbell, thanks for your reply. if the Exchange is listed as data source, is there any configuration needed on report server to use this data source? sorry I am new to Power BI report server, I mean how to configure Exchange as any possible data source (non-schedule refresh)?

As far as I am aware the only option with Exchange is to manuallyrefresh using Power BI Desktop and re-upload/save the pbix file

Thank you d_gosbell for these information.
