Dynamics RLS not working in PowerBI Service

I configured dynamic RLS in PowerBI Desktop, and it works flawlessly; everything is as expected. I get errors when I try to enter an email using the "Now viewing as" feature online. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two. According to my understanding, because it is dynamic, I do not need to add any users to the group online. However, when I enter an email address to test it, it still does not work. Is this normal for some reason?

 

Here are the screenshots:

But when I add their names to the RSL I've set up here, they can view the report. Am I missing something? This is more on the Static RLS, right?

Hi @JustineDXC ,

 

For dynamic rls, you cannot assign users to a role within the Power BI desktop. You assign them in the Power BI service. By using the username() or userprincipalname() DAX function and configuring the appropriate relationships.

[User] = USERPRINCIPALNAME()

 

Also have you previously defined roles and rules in the Power BI service, if so you will have to recreate them in Power BI Desktop.
