You have to go through some tutorial or books on how to build the cubes. You can't directly browse normal database using ssas. You will need to build the cube first, which is different kind of database (column store). To build cube, you need to build analysis services project, connect to the database, create data source view, build dimensions and cube, after that you can browse that cube in ssas.
