Define user and password



I am almost new to power bi report server.

I created a report in Power BI RS and showed it to the managers of the company i'm working in, and they ask me if I can define a username and password and a way to share each part of the report to each employee.

I searched a lot but couldn't find a way to do these things... Is there any way to show specific part of the report to each employee by defining username/password and a security level?

Thanks in  advance


This is typically done by using row level security in the data source, such as Analysis Services or the SQL Server. You use the windows identity of the user to connect to the data source, which filters the data to only the set they have permission to.
