RLS different level



I have a dimension department  table that filter the factstable. One ofthis table is the sales pr employee. How can I create a RLS where the manager of a department can see the sales of ALL department but not sales of the employees of other departments, only his or or possibly some other departments?

So show all sales on the aggregated departmentlevel but RLS only on specific employees.

Hi @Coan7 ,


The first thing to make this successful would be that your data actually is separated that way so it is possible.  You have to be able to slice your data in that manner or RLS won't work.


Assuming that your data can be sliced in that manner, you just create roles that have both department and employee filters.  Then, in the Service, you put that manager into the apropriate two roles - the one that can see those department(s) that you want and the employee(s) that you want.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

I end up in making new calculations based on userprinciplename. Duplicate/seperate data would be to much.
