What user role\s are required to allow access to SharePoint from within Power BI ?

When trying to connect to a SharePoint site or list using the connector in Power BI it's failing to authenticate. I have access to SharePoint and the sites in question. It seems to be a permissions issue or role related. Can you list what roles etc... would be needed to see the site through Power BI.
