User Login Automatically Shows Owned Data

New Member


I have a project to enhance a dashboard for a client, and wanted to know how best to start. I need to provide a function in the dashboard that will automatically show datasets that are owned by a particular user when they log in to use that dashboard. To clarify- the main dashboard is used by a variety of people, and I'm wanting to figure out if there's a way to program the dashboard to automatically display datasets owned by any user specific that is logged into and using the dashboard. I feel like it's possible but have no idea of where to start. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Try adding $env:user$ to your query to get the user's name.
