Cannot use Quick Insights in a Data Model with RLS Roles

Cannot use Quick Insights in a Data Model with RLS Roles


I have a Data Model with 2 Roles setup for Row Level Security (RLS). When I load it to the Service, Quick Insights is not available. If I remove the roles and re-upload the file, then Quick Insights is automatically enabled.

I'm pretty sure this is a limitation with the Quick Insights feature, there is an idea here to enable quick insights for models with RLS.


From what I understand they generate the insights by running a bunch of machine learning (ML) models against your data set. The issue with RLS is that they would have to run a different pass of the ML models for every possible combination of RLS roles otherwise they would risk exposing information in the insights that a given user is not allowed to see.
