Power BI authorization



Just a quick question, because I can't find any answer. After I created "row level security" in Power BI, am I able to know which user is connected currently to Power BI?


For example I give User_A an access to view Table_X. Is there a chance to check somehow if he is viewing currently Table_X etc? Is there something like admin tool, where I can checking this kind of things?

Super User
Super User

@jdmbkj , You use userprincipalname() to get the user name


If you want a secure object like a table or column, Then you can use OLS


If needed refer to this one from Guyinacube

Ok, but is there a solution to know if given user is currently connected to Power BI? Something like "live view"? That I can check if someone is using Power BI at the moment?
