Don't see group in RLS security

I added a new security group on a workspace and it worked,

but when i try to add the group in RLS the group doesn´t show in the list.

I noticed this behaviour when our company started to create new groups in the cloud(Azure) instead off OnPreem.

 

How is RLS different from Workspaces when fetching groups?

Hi @royalswe 

In addition to HusnaBanu413 , you can build four different kinds of groups in Microsoft 365 admin center.

They are Microsoft 365 Group, Distribution groupsSecurity groups , And Mail-enabled-Group.

We can find three kinds of groups in RLS:  Distribution groupsSecurity groups , And Mail-enabled-Group.

So the type of the group you want to add into RLS may be a Microsoft 365 Group(This kind of group can be found in workspace but can't be found in RLS).

You may build other kinds of groups and add them into RLS.

Are you sure the security group name which you have mentioned is the screenshot the same is reflecting in Azure Active Directory??

Make sure that there is no spelling mistake on this part...

Thanks for your reply HusnaBanu.

The Screenshoot is not a real group, it´s just an example where i try to add the group.

It´s not a typo because I tried several times and it finds it on workspace level.

 

It will find the group in this screenshot for workspace access.

In Power BI Service, RLS is used for restricting data access for given users, while the group workspace is used for restricting group members to view or edit group content.
You need to maintain two different security groups for this purpose one for RLS and another for Worspace.

Please mark this as solution if this helped you

I'm aware of that but i need to add the group as a viewer in the workspace for them to see the reports. Then I add the group to the RLS where I want the group should have restricting data.

 

This worked fine until now. I know that the new groups that don't show up in the RLS input box was created in the cloud instead of OnPrem if that could be the trouble somehow. The new groups shows in the share workspace input field though.

Thanks RicoZhou!

 

This must be the cause for me.

I will tell our service desk about this.
