Row Level Security by Reza Rad

Row-level security is a new feature for Power BI that that enables you to partition data based on roles.  Previously this was only possible by using via live connections to Analysis Services on-premises. In this session Reza will walk through how you can take advantage of Row-level security to enable both protecting sensitive data and be used for general purpose partitioning information like geography to make your reports more relevant and impactful.
