A few thoughts...

1) The server name needs to be in the form: powerbi://<Workspace Name>
From the premium tab of workspace settings you can copy the URL:


2) In order to connect a workspace must be in either Premium Per User or Premium Capacity.

3) You need to make sure you have XLMA endpoints turned on in tennant settings.
