multiple RLS groups



I'm wondering what will happen if one suer appears in multiple RLS groups. 


for example, I have a user who appears in two security groups as below. I need to give her access to full company a+b + partial company c (only logistic and legal department). 


How can  I tell power bi there is a "or" relationsip between two groups?

It gets even weirder.  You can have a user in two RLS groups with contradicting rules.


In general the more permissive rule overrides the more restrictive rule.

Can this still be done? Without RLS conflict?


Define "conflict".  Permissive rules override restrictive rules. No conflict here.

By conflict here, I mean for example, the first role restricts users to only one region's data and it shows all brand categories. The second role restricts the user to a particular brand category data for all regions. The user is getting an error here due to the conflict in the nature of the roles. Which one of these can be classfied as a lesser restrictive role? Or how to achieve that?

Hi @lbendlin, any thoughts on this?

Is the user getting an actual error message or are they seeing one product for one region?

The user is getting an actual error message. The message is as follows:
