Allowing export of Underlying Data with RLS

Hello.  I have RLS set up in a PBI report and have assigned users to those roles.  It's working well!   However....the users can no longer select the option to export underlying data from a chart.  I have checked my report settings and the box is definitely checked.  Is it somehow limited because of the RLS?  I still want users to be able to export underlying data for the charts but am unsure how to set this up.  As an admin, I can still see this option when I try, but it's not working for anyone assigned to a role.  Any help much appreciated.  Thank you

Thank you for your reply.  In PBI Service, if I 'view as role', I can see and select the option to export underlying data as this user.  However, when that user is logged in themselves, the option is greyed out.  Is this a setting at their end that's causing the problem, possibly?
