With the summer updates to PowerBI desktop came an update to the security method called “row level”. It is now a bit more easy to ensure, who sees what in a PowerBI report and/or dashboard. Something that will obviously also impact those using Microsoft Project Online and PowerBI. One important thing though, is that this feature requires your users to have a PowerBI PRO subscription. If you are looking for a more dynamic row level filtering on a user level, you can use the ResourceNTAccount from the Project Online ODATA feed “Resources”.
This 5 min video will give you a simple introduction to how you can set up your own security model using the row level method. As an alternative, you can also read the steps in details here.
