Re-Embedding a Report with a Different Access token, Shows Pervious User Data

I have a report with RLS

I embed the report with user A accessToken, and it loads user A Data.

I then Re-embed the Report with User B, and it loads User A Data instead


Here is a demo page which shows the issue (you need a access to a report with RLS and a way to Generate AccessToken).

I've very slightly modified the default sandbox code.



<script type="module" src=""></script>
        <script type="wc-content">
            ### Steps

            1. Get Embed url and Report Id for a report with RLS.
            1. Get AccessToken for a User with RLS
            1. Load Report
            1. Get AccessToken for different user with Different RLS
            1. Load Report

            * Expectation: Report Data has changed for the new users
            * Reality: Report Data has not Changed

    embedUrl:<input type="text" id="embedUrl">
    ReportId:<input type="text" id="embedReportId">
    Access Token:<input type="text" id="accessToken">

    <button onclick="embedPowerBIReport()">Load Report</button>After Report has loaded, Change the AccessToken to a different AccessToken.
    <div id="embedContainer"></div>

        // We give All permissions to demonstrate switching between View and Edit mode and saving report.
        let permissions = models.Permissions.All;

        report = powerbi.embed(embedContainerconfig);

        // removes all event handlers for a specific event"loaded");

        // report.on will add an event handler
        report.on("rendered"function () {

I believe this is a security issue (although very minor).

It would be great to get a reply from the powerbi client team to confirm.

Also to know if it will be fixed, or not fixed (either way is fine, but it feedback would be fantastic).
