Dynamic RLS not working in Desktop or Service

Hi,

 

I am sure this is something simple but I can't seem to figure it out. I have dynamic RLS  set up using USERPRINCIPALNAME(). When I test with a user's email address it filters nothing. 

 

I created a slicer to test the filtering directly with the same user and it works. Any idea what the issue could be? I have a few other reports with similar data models that are exhibiting the same behavior.

Hi @nbs333 ,

 

By default, row-level security filtering uses single-directional filters, whether the relationships are set to single direction or bi-directional. You can manually enable bi-directional cross-filtering with row-level security by selecting the relationship and checking the Apply security filter in both directions checkbox. Note that if a table takes part in multiple bi-directional relationships you can only select this option for one of those relationships. Select this option when you've also implemented dynamic row-level security at the server level, where row-level security is based on username or login ID.

For more information, see Bidirectional cross-filtering using DirectQuery in Power BI Desktop and the Securing the Tabular BI Semantic Model technical article.
