OData Credentials- Couldn't connect msg


Could you please help me with the below Issue,

When I connect to the OData feed from Power BI Desktop, I can connect, import data, and create reports.
 OData URIs Example:

https://localhost:7048/BC230/ODataV4/Company('CRONUS International Ltd.')/Customer?$filter=City eq 'Miami'  

1- If I don't specify the /Customer?$filter=City eq 'Miami' (bring only Customer and apply a filter or select only needed columns in the OdataFeed using $filter and $select) I don't get any refresh problems when publishing the report in Power BI Report Server, Data Source credentials connect successfully and I can create a scheduled refresh.

2- I only get the below problem after adding /Customer?$filter=City eq 'Miami' 
When I publish the report to our internally hosted Power BI Report Server,I get a red x Couldn't Connect with the following message



Here I am Using the same credentials, as in 1-

However, I can create a scheduled refresh and the report does refresh successfully(Status=Completed Data Refresh).

I am connected to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

What do you think the problem is? a Bug in Power BI Report Server or a setting in BC?

Are you replacing "localhost"  with something that is meaningful to the Report Server?

Hello Ibendlin,
Yes, sure. The problem is that in the Report Server the URL stops until the table name (Customer in my example). It's like it crashes when I add the ?. It doesn't show the whole UrL like in Desktop.

https://localhost:7048/BC230/ODataV4/Company('CRONUS International Ltd.')/Customer?$filter=City eq 'Miami'  

Note: the Url works just fine when I test it in Chrome too.
