Create same report with different datasets



I have to share some reports with about 100 clients. The report and structure of underlying data will remain same. The only thing that will change is a "where" clause in my SQL query which will fetch data only for that specific client. I am making use of parameters to substitute value in that where clause but in order to make 100 reports, I have to publish 100 such datasets. How do I accomplish this in minimum number of steps? If I could duplicate dataset somehow then I can do it easily but that is not an option on PowerBI Service.


Also, if i pass the parameter in report URL, will it compromise the data security or performance in some way?

@ravish-qureshi you can easily achieve this by using Row Level Security (RLS). Search on google and you will find tons of solutions. This is the right way to approach this.
