    Hi You can create a role in the pbix and then once in power bi navigate to the role within the dataset/security and click 'test as role'. It's not perfect but it can be useful.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by models - but what if data isn't stored in the cloud?

    We currently need a second machine to be logged in as a market specific user to test reports. We build very general reports and let role level security built into our data model a lot of filtering but have no good way to view/test reports as a user.
