Dynamics RLS not working in PowerBI Service

I configured dynamic RLS in PowerBI Desktop, and it works flawlessly; everything is as expected. I get errors when I try to enter an email using the "Now viewing as" feature online. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two. According to my understanding, because it is dynamic, I do not need to add any users to the group online. However, when I enter an email address to test it, it still does not work. Is this normal for some reason?

 

Here are the screenshots:

But when I add their names to the RSL I've set up here, they can view the report. Am I missing something? This is more on the Static RLS, right?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

For dynamic rls, you cannot assign users to a role within the Power BI desktop. You assign them in the Power BI service. By using the username() or userprincipalname() DAX function and configuring the appropriate relationships.

[User] = USERPRINCIPALNAME()

 

Also have you previously defined roles and rules in the Power BI service, if so you will have to recreate them in Power BI Desktop.

But I've properly configured it and it works for Power BI desktop. What could be the difference?
