RLS on Dim table and not Fact?



I have a model with around 20 tables, (18 of them Dim and 2 facts...)


I want apply dynamic RLS.


I wanted to apply the filter on a DimCostumer, like this:


=[SK_Cust] IN
,'Responsible'[NTUserName] = USERNAME()


and then it be propagated to the rest of the tables (both fact tables...) is this doable/best practice? Or do I have to set RLS on each Fact. (I have SK_Cust on both fact tables...)

Hi @ovonel ,

How does your data model look like? Whether the relationship be created among the dimension tables and fact tables base on specific field(for example:SK_Cust field)? The following links are the ones for creating dynamic RLS examples, hope they can help you.

@ovonel , Doing on dimension is a better way. As using one dimension you can control more than one fact
