Setting up Username or Password to bypass row level security



I have a PowerBI report which parts of contain fairly sensitive data. The sensitive data we don't want the public to be able to see. I have tried a variety of solutions, but none have met my requirements.


The first involved using the Text Filter visualization and making buttons avialable to the more sensitive information once a full string of text was entered (see this guide This was unsuccesful because the user could enter any part of the string and "search" and it would reveal the buttons.


The second involved this guide here: This doesn't work because the list of passwords is revealed if you view the text filter as a table.


Any help or suggestions anyone is willing to lend would be much appreciated!

Hi @NDUSER21 ,


Why not set row-level security directly in Power BI:
