Get number or rows per user from the Power bi api

Hi,

Is it possible to retrive the numbers of rows accessable to a specific user in a power bi repport using the power bi api?

 

Thanks,

Hi. Can you try explaining more the scenario and question? from what I can read there it sounds like you have a power bi report with RLS and you want to know the number of rows of a table a user can see using the power bi rest api. That's a no. The only way to check the rows of tables from a user standpoint at an RLS semantic model is if you are de developer and have the power bi desktop to "View as Role". That feature should let you check how specific user can see to check it.

I hope that helps,
