Power BI User Security hierarchy of objects and platform

Hello, I am looking for a diagram, or a document on the overall USER security hierarchy within Power BI. IE: Does giving access to a dashboard override report access, but a dashboard access is overridden by workspace access? Just looking for a path of what security level takes precedence over other locations of user security. Looking forward to your responses. Thanks, David

Hi @dbowman ,

I could not understand what is your desired result. Could you mean the users in the workspace could only see the dashboard or the report?

Hi @v-danhe-msft,

 

Thanks for your response. Not exactly, so in this link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-admin-power-bi-security There is a diagram showing the infrastructure security. I am looking for a diagram, or path, of how the security works based on service location.

 

Essentially if you apply access security in more than one place, which area takes precedence over the other.

IE: If you apply access at A and D, access at location D nullifies the access at A.

 

Hope this helps.

 

David.

Still looking for some guidance on this. Any info is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

@v-danhe-msft Thanks for the response, however RLS is not what i am looking for. Sorry if i have not been clear enough.

 

I'm looking more on the infrastructure side than the coding/development side of security.

 

Workspace access, report access, dataset access, service access, dashboard access, etc.

 

Looking for a tree, or diagram on the priority of those and which takes precedence over the other(s).

 

Thanks,
