RLS - one USERNAME() with access to multiple values in the same column

Hi everyone,

 

I have a case like this

 

User 1Department 1
User 1Department 2
User 2Department 1

 

The data can also be structured like this

 

User 1Department 1, Department 2
User 2Department 1

 

I would like to setup RLS that User 1 can have access to both Deparment 1 and 2 but the Lookupvalue function only supports a single value result.

 

What should I do? Thank you so much in advance.

Hi @annguyenjoh,

 

You can try this:

VAR A =
    CALCULATETABLE (
        VALUES ( Table[Department] ),
        FILTER ( Table, Table[Username] = USERNAME () )
    )
RETURN
    [Department] IN A

Hey @annguyenjoh ,

 

usually you would just filter the table to User = USERPRINCIPLENAME().

Then the report is filtered automatically to the departments the user has access to.

 

Would that work for your case?

 

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍

Hi Denis,

 

Thank you for your reply. It didn't work as the lookup function only allow one single value as result. I actually tried this:

 

[Deparment] IN CALCULATETABLE (
VALUES (Table1[Department]),
Table1[User]=USERNAME()
)
