Is it possible to connect ReportsPlus to Azure Analysis Services?

Is it possible to connect to Azure Analysis Services with ReportsPlus.

In Azure, I created a SSAS instance (not running in a VM, this is Azure Analysis Services (Paas).  The "server name" it gives me is like this:


I used that above as the server name in ReportsPlus, entered credentials, and when I connect I get:

    Hell Joe,

    Thank you for your support request!

    I've checked the documentation up and down... ReportPlus doesn't seem to be able to connect to Azure.

    If you were able to provide me with a test environment, I could ask the devs to review and see if it's possible to implement it soon.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
