RLS based on Category

Hello ,
I have employee data with different role , I want to restrict data based on Resource type
for example Employee (1) has resource type A and is location head can view only his data being a location head and related resource data fromsales  table 

can you please help 




I do have a Refrence Table , with USERNAME we are mapping it to Resource Type 

Needs to be USERPRINCIPALNAME.  their email address, basically.

@lbendlin  Can't we do it with employee id USERNAME()......?,
and Could you please help me out on dax how can I restrict data based on Type for specific People

For dynamic RLS you don't need anything else, but it must use USERPRINCIPALNAME, and your reference table must control the fact tables of the data model.

Okay and what would be my dax to filter the data as per specific category ?

There is no DAX filter, this is all controlled via the data model.

I assume you have a reference table in your data model that maps USERPRINCIPALNAME to resource type?
