RLS one person assigned to two different roles in SSAS Tabular

I have two roles defined in the SSAS tabular cube :

RoleA : the user can see the data with filter : Department = "HR"

RoleB : the user can see the data with filter : Department = "FIN" || Department = "XP" || Department = "MKT" 


now when I add a same user to both RoleA and RoleB, the user is seeing only data from Department= "HR"

@AmiraBedh check documentation here Row-level security (RLS) guidance in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Docs and this is what is happening


When a report user is assigned to multiple roles, RLS filters become additive.
