Chapter 11: Row-Level Security

In the previous chapter, we learned some advanced data modeling techniques such as using aggregations, incremental refresh, implementing a parent-child hierarchy, role-playing dimensions, and calculation groups. In this chapter, we discuss an essential aspect of data modeling, row-level security (RLS). We will cover the following topics:

  • What RLS means in data modeling
  • RLS terminologies
  • RLS implementation flow
  • Common RLS implementation approaches

We try to cover the preceding topics with real-world scenarios, but keep in mind that each Power BI project may have specific requirements, so it is virtually impossible to cover all RLS possibilities and scenarios.

When it comes to Power BI security, many people immediately ...
