RLS Help

Hi All,

I'm new in Power BI.

I need to implement RLS but when I create new role and set the filter for my table, the role doesn't work!

I follow the tutorial into documentation page of Power BI.

When I test my role I see all data for the user that I must restrict data.

I use the latest versione of Power BI Desktop and I use the gateway enterprise.


The role name is Vendor01 and the filter of my table is set as the follow

- table Invoice --> this is table number 4 into list of all table

- [vendorcode] = "S04" <-- this is the extact syntax


Please help me.

See this article by @ankitpatira. I believe that when I tested this, I had to use the syntax shown in the article and include the table name. So, in your case, try:

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...


I use the syntax that you propose but doesn't work.

When I test the roles with ellipse "Test As Role" my report became empty and all object have "X - View Details" icon.

My e-mail is in a group.

I don't understand the problem.

Another thing: I put VendorCode as report filter also but doesn't work yet.


Can you help me?

When you select test as role, you get two options

 Type in the username in the bot that says enter email address. This should filter your report.
