DirectQuery RLS

Could someone please tell me How I can configure RLS on a dataset using DirectQuery and import, in power BI?

I have a table that imported and I added a role on it "UserprincipalName()" but when I tried "View as Role" only the table that I added a role on it is filtred but the others are not. 

 

I can not see this when I add a relation between the imported table and the DQuery Table

@rimah , Usually this is what we do, we take a global dimension and filter that using RLS.

The global dimension is one which joins with all fact example like region, item, customer etc

Sorry, but how can we add Rls on a DirectQuery table in power BI is it even possible.

I am adding Rls on an imported table that is a global dimension but it's only filtering itself.

Hi @rimah ,

 

You need turn off the apply security filter in both directions when you use RLS.

but my question is about the table "TABEL" is DirectQuery so how can you see it here

in my report when I can not see all the tables that are in DirectQuery mode in the "Role" second when I add a role like you did my data is not filtred I see all data (I am using Dynamic RLS  USERPINCIPALNAME).

Hi @rimah ,

 

Can you share your pbix file without sensitive data or some screenshot of your filter dax in rls role.

As you can see I only can see the imported tables and the filter that I added does not work on the other table(DirectQuey)

Hey @rimah did you ever find a solution to your issue, I am facing the same.
