How to filter table by USERPRINCIPALNAME()

Hi,

I would like to filter data by USERPRINCIPALNAME() via RLS. 

 

For in stance, in below table, when USERPRINCIPALNAME = 'u1@gmail.com', it should show first 2 rows, which contains 'u1@gmail.com'

 

I've created a role with a table filter, but it doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks

 

CONTAINS(
      [fact_Logon],
      [MappingEmail],
      USERPRINCIPALNAME()
) = True()

@spagad6263 I don't use this new look, I don't like it at all. Switch to the DAX editor and past the code there.

@spagad6263 as far as expression returns true/false, it should work.

Hi,

 

Do you think below should work?

 

FIND(USERPRINCIPALNAME(),fact_Contact[MappingEmailAddress]) > 0

 

Thanks

Unfortunately, there is no CONTAINS option below

@spagad6263 you should put this in the role instead:

 

VAR __UPN = USERPRINCIPALNAME ()
VAR __Table = FILTER ( Table, CONTAINSSTRING (  Table[MappedEmail], __UPN ) )
RETURN
NOT ISEMPTY ( __Table )

Thanks for the reply. I've created below measure. Can you advise how I could link this to the role?

meas_Filter =
VAR UPN = USERPRINCIPALNAME ()
RETURN
CALCULATE (
   COUNTROWS (fact_Contact),
   CONTAINSSTRING (fact_Contact[MappingEmailAddress], UPN)
)

@spagad6263 you need to add a measure:

 

Measure = 
VAR __UPN = USERPRINCIPALNAME ()
RETURN
CALCULATE ( 
   COUNTROWS ( Table ),
   CONTAINSSTRING (  Table[MappedEmail], __UPN )
)

This doesn't quite work.

 

I tried below using roles editor. No syntax error, but not returning what I need. Any thoughts?

 

USERPRINCIPALNAME() IN fact_Contact[MappingEmailAddress]
