Enable RLS for reports connected to a live Power BI Service dataset
RLS roles are disabled for reports built on a live connection to a Power BI Service dataset. Please enable this functionality -- this is critical for the scalability of Power BI in my organization!
This is not correct. RLS is against the dataset not the child reports and dashboards. It works fine with live connections. However view as role in child reports is a must in big organisations. It's the only way to be sure!
I agree with proposal. "Test as role" online on child reports would be useful
Luke is correct, we use this functionality heavily. the roles applied to the parent report are reflected in the child report. The View as Role should be accessible from the child report though. The inability to do this makes managing complex security rules a nightmare. We are going to have to revert back to our on premise SSAS model if this feature can't find it's way in soon which would be a sad day for us :(

I believe RLS still applies to online reports created from the dataset, but it can't be viewed in a desktop report created from the online dataset.
