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: abc@mailbox.com. 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.

Unfortunately Microsoft Exchange is one of the data sources listed here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/data-sources 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.
