RLS on DirectQuery(SAP HANA)

I have pulled two tables from dataflow and i directly queried from SAP HANA database.
Mixed storage mode/Composite mode.
I have created calculated table of company code from the Hana queried fact table.

I made many to many relation between Hana Fact query and calaculated table.

Applied RLS on the calculated table.
But while applying RLS on Hana Fact query which is referencing one of the tables which was imported from the dataflow is showing up the error message stating
"A calculated column or RLS expression on a DirectQuery table cannot reference tables from a different data source"

can you please help me with the solution.

Please refer the screenshot.RLS.jpeg

@SaratNitturi , You can only use columns from the table on which RLS is getting set

Hi Amit, Thanks for the response. Is there any other way apply RLS on the directquery. As We use Directquery and import models to apply RLS
