Maintain a Main report as template to subreports



What is the best way to maintain sub-reports with the same default model (tables, visualization) of a "mother" report?

I've a Dataset that serve as linage to six different reports.

Those reports have the same visualization, but they have different filters applied as they are set according to users (not all views are available, each report has a different 'all pages' filter...)


The only way I found to maintain all sub-reports with same standard visualization is making changes in a single desktop file, creating copyies and appling the filters to each of them. I need to do this and reaply filters everytime I make changes to standard template.


Is there a better way to maintain these?

Thank you.

if each sub report have specific users and they only need to see that filtered data not been allowed to other filter data you could on the data model create roles and assign the filters to roles and them the roles to users. this way the same report will adjust to a specific limitation of the model data for each assigned user.

Thanks Stefano.
Did some research and looks that this regards to RLS (Row-level security (RLS) with Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Learn), isnt it?
I will follow at this line if you confirm that this a good path to move on.
