Restrict access to entire page in a report.


I have a report with multiple pages.  One page has employee costs report for the organization and I want to provide access to this report only to the senior managers.  I did the following to meet this requirement. 

1. Create a role and selected the tables that feed data to this table.  Selected 'hide all rows' as filtering criteria. 

2. In the dataset security in service, add the users for this role and they will be restricted from seeing this report. But the problem lies when there are more number of users. Do i need to manually add each and every user to the security group for this role.   Is there any chance of selecting senior managers who are less in number and rest are all users should be restricted from accessing the report.  Something like 'Not' operator in the filter criteria. 


Is there any better way to meet this requirement. 


Yes using basic row level security.  Thanks for your reply though. Appreciate it.

This is way too complicated imo. There should be a native way to set permissions per page.

Sometimes I have multiple pages with different levels of detail. So restricting the entire table would not work in this case.

To be general, you can achieve this by create an additional user table and create one username column in each table, then create a relationship between the User table and each table and create a role on the user table using DAX like pattern:
