Unable to refresh Excel Hosted in Power BI Report Server



I have an Excel saved in Power BI report server web portal that connects to SSAS cube. When i refresh the pivot it throws the following error: "This workbook contains external data connections or BI features that are not supported"


The Office web apps server is already configured to allow external connections. Is there anything I'm missing?
