Thank you for your response but RSL and roles of my existing applications are not getting matched.
If user A has role 'Student' from existing application and associated "school" for student is "xyz" then I need to filter slicer or show only that perticular school in drop down and drill the results for specifc filter.

please note to view the report I need to plot into existing web application as we do with SSRS reports.


Please let me know if you confused with my questions and thank you in advance for your response.
