How to change the background color for specific rows in a matrix?

I want to change the background color for specific rows in a matrix based on the name of the row.

What I did so far was to create a conditional column X in the data table that says, for example, when asset_name is A82 give me 1, in all other cases give me 0. Then for each field in Values, I created a conditional rule based on that X column - when column X is 1 - blue color, when is 0 - white color.

Basically, I apply conditional background color for the columns. However, I want to be able to conditionally color the rows. There is no option to choose a background color for the fields in Rows. Therefore, I'm able to custom-color only the "column part" of the matrix. Is there any workaround for this?

Currently Power BI does not have such features to change the background color for the entire row, you may vote and check comments under this idea.

However, you can also try this workaround solution:

@amitchandak Thank you for your reply!

With this method you are able to custom-color only the columns, which I already did, but not the entire row of the matrix.
