Use "View as" when the datasource is an existing Dataset

Dear communitiy,
I've created a new report. As Datasource I've used an existing Dataset with role security.
Now I would like to test my report with the "View as" function.
But neither in Desktop, nor in Service I found a way to do so.

Any help is very much appreciated.

 

Thank you

If you are using a Live connection I do not believe you can use it, it will be greyed out. You need to test roles in the dataset, not a live connection to the dataset.

Thanks. I am aware of this function and I always use it. But it is inactive/greyed out, as soon as you use an existing dataset with RLS.
