Re: Need help - Why shared user can not download report in term of Pbix file

Stick with me here @thuantv , it is not the case that your user is added to RLS that has anything to do with anything, it is the fact that you have implemented RLS in the first place. Again, think about it, if you have shared a report and dataset with someone and they are in RLS, if they download the PBIX, then the RLS restrictions essentially no longer exist for that user. If download was allowed for users with whom an RLS report has been shared (not workspace owners) then it would completely violate the entire intention behind RLS.

 

Let me know if this makes sense.

Pretty sure that it is your Row Level Security. Think about it. If someone who only has Row Level Security to the report downloads the PBIX, goodbye RLS...

Dear Greg

It is not due to row level sercurity, User has already included in Row level security.

He can see information on the report but he can not download it.

Please see picture i have paste in previous message.
