Filter Power BI Report embedded in a web application from Power BI Report Server

Good morning everyone,

I am working on embedding and filtering Power BI report hosted from Power BI Report Server. I have successfully been able to embed Power BI report from web application using:

<iframe src="http://PowerBIReportServer?rs:embed=true"></iframe>


Along with this I also wanted to show report data based on the user has logged in, which I have been able to achieve using:

<iframe src="http://PowerBIReportServer?rs:embed=true&filter=TableName/ColumnName eq 'Value'"></iframe>


But using this method one user is able to see data of other user by editing the data in the browser. Is there any secure way of doing the filtering for Power BI reports hosted on Power BI report server?

We create our own authentication provider on top of PBI RS.   We don't use the out of the box AD provider.  Also,  is the pbix using a direct connection or an import model?    You can use RLS with both implementations.

Yes...  using Row level security.      This works on power bi report server.   Just make sure your server is a version beyond May 2020 to be safe.

Thank you for your quick response and help. With row level security we need to always add members and we have 100+ customers and with every new customer we will have to manage addition or deletion of members. Is there a workaround for this?

Hi @rashig ,


You can apply ad group to the rls role. Please refer to
