Power BI office groups

Hello,

I have set up security for levels A and B. Level A has access to limited things within their department of the building, whereas level B has access to everything within the building that they are addressed to. I have an office group for level A which contains both Level A and Level B user. And, I have a separate office group for Level B. I have given them separate types of limitations and have tested out for Level B and its worked perfectly. However, once I implemented Level A’s roles, it started to work for Level A, but stopped working for Level B. Level B now seems to have access to everything. Is there any possible way I can stop that from happening? Please let me know.

I have a feeling that you and I went the rounds of this type of question before, with another project (related to schools), so rather than pointing you to that post, I thought I’d point to another post currently in the forum:

Hello Heather,

Hope you are doing well. Thank you so much for responding. This is not exactly a similar situation. It more of an office 365 group issue that I’m facing due to duplicate groups. I kind of got it figured out soon after this email. I was tryin to see if there is a way power bi could give access to the higher hierarchy level if the person is listed in more than a few office groups.

ah, my apologies, I have not been able to work with Office365 groups (our system is not so layered), so I was not aware that the solution for the group would need to be different from any other RLS solutions.

Hopefully someone on a more sophisticated environment will be able to step in to help you get the rest of the way :slight_smile:

did you try to send a message to Microsoft about it? or go to Microsoft community group and post something there?
