    5. Add the 'Site Analyst' role in Power BI service to users and groups who have access to specific sites: 
      CardioLog Analytics SaaS Dataset > More options > Security > Select the 'Site Analyst' role > Add each user or group as a member.

    6. Add the 'Global Analyst (View All Sites)' role in Power BI service to users and groups who have access to all sites:
      CardioLog Analytics SaaS Dataset > More options > Security > Select the 'Global Analyst (View All Sites)' role > Add each user or group as a member.
      Note: Since roles are reset in Power BI on every version update, it is highly recommended to create user groups for managing users roles (one for site analysts and one for global analysts) so it would be easier to maintain.
