You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the Excel file in the above folder and create a basic table showing data for sales of houses in different areas:

Power BI Role level security

There are 5 types of building - in an ideal world each viewer should only see their relevant category.

There are two options available: create 5 independent reports or use the one report but filter it to show data only for the current user. The later can be performed using roles:

Role level security

Create a role for each house type, filtering using the PropertyType code. Look in the Property types sheet to find the codes.

Once you have made the roles, check that each is working using View Roles on the Home tab:

Roles Power BI

Other user is an additional category added automatically.


Optionally save this as Roles for Rent and close it down.
