Testing Row-Level Security in Power BI

Wolfgang Strasser puts on the Mission Impossible face replacement mask:

Long time, no Power BI blog post from my side. But today I found out, that the testing of your row-level-security (RLS) logic in the Power BI service changed “a little bit” since I last used it.

Whenever you want to test your RLS logic, you can do this in Power BI Desktop (Mange Roles for definition, “View as” for testing).

Click through for an example of how this works. I like this approach a lot because the people who are developing these reports usually have access to everything, so it’s hard to ensure that you got everything right until people start complaining.
