Unable to create app

First time trying to create an app. When I finish creating the settings and hit the "create app "button, I get the following message:

Is there something else I am supposed to do to be able to create an app? I have a Power BI Pro License FWIW.

As long as you have Contributor role or higher with permission to create/modify the app (member and admin get that automatically) it should work. If it doesn't , contact support. Support | Microsoft Power BI
