Please can anyone suggest how to implement dynamic RLS in Powerbi service so that external user can see only their data.

I am trying to set up role wherein it checks the login email is same as USERPRINCIPALNAME.

The user table stores the email id as

The MS Active directory has the user set up as

What DAX can I apply and where and how

Super User
Super User

@tryto Your security table will need to have the email address match whatever is returned by USERPRINCIPALNAME.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

@Greg_Deckler  please can you guide me if there is any DAX that I can formulate that checks the email id of the user before the "@" sign and formats the user email to Same as the UPN.

Hi @tryto 

As Greg_Deckler said, your security table need to have the email addresses returned by USERPRINCIPALNAME. But for Analysis Services data sources, you can configure custom UPN rules. Please read this article,
