There should be a place in the report action properties where you can specify HTTPS at the moment Analysis Services always creates the report server url using HTTP

The unfortunate side effect of this change is that when you specify a Report Action in a Multidimensional model and set "Server name" to just servername then the action won't show up in Excel in SSAS 2016 because the URL doesn't start with http or https. So an action which was working in SSAS 2014 suddenly stops working in SSAS 2016 until you change the "Server name" property of the report action to include http:// or https://

The above also applies to SSAS Tabular models and the BIDS Helper Tabular Actions Editor feature which works on 1103 compatibility level models.

In SQL Server 2016, you will be able to prefix the report server name with http:// or https:// and address this problem.

Thanks for reporting this issue!
