Scheduled refresh for report server using windows authentication

According to this page:  Power BI report data sources in Power BI Report Server - Power BI | Microsoft Learn , when setting up a scheduled refresh for a report in power bi report server, windows authentication can be used.   However, when i enter my windows credentials on the "Manage=>Data Sources" page in Report server, i get an error message that the credentials are incorrect.  I have verified my network password is indeed correct.   I am new to power bi so maybe I am missing something.  Thanks in advance, Alex

 

edit:  the report was created in desktop using windows authentication.

Have you tried entering the username using the format of <domain>\<username> ? Sometimes just entering the <username> part on it's own does not work.
