Role Playing Dimensional Slicer Table

Hello Community 

I am trying to create a Role Playing table that allows me to slice my reports with a role from that table.  My data sets originally were a fact table, employee table and date table. 

 

My fact table has 2 columns with employee id's, one for employee assigned to the claim and one with the employee assigned to the exposure.  Because of this, I created a Claim Emp table (all employees with role 'Claims' added) and an Exp Emp Table (all employees with role 'Exp' added). 

 

I do not want to use USERELATIONSHIPif possible because there are a lot of metrics we are looking at. 

 

From the Claim Emp Table and Exp Emp Table, I have appended those table into a Role table.  It shows all employees for each Role.  What I want to do is be able to select the role from this table and use it as a slicer to be able to slice the data by the different roles.  Here is sample data:

FACT TABLE

25612913911
323415515812
457612318313

Is there anyway to model this data so that I can select the role, and it will filter the fact data based on the emp id role columns from the fact table?(ExpID and ClmID)

I am not sure that this is possible, but wanted to reach out to the community.


Thanks

Ryan

This does not really solve the issue, but I believe it confirms what I thought and that the full solution my client is looking for is not actually possible.

Thank you for the information.
