(Delegation?) Can someone explain why this works.

Hi,

 

So this app uses various SQL Server tables as the source.  The table SalespersonMaster as over 500 records, about 700.  I have read delegation documents.  I thought using a filter happens on the sql server side and I can find one records out of the 700 using the below code.  It gives a delegation warning.  However the line above it works fine when I set the users email to a variable search that way.  

 

Just trying to understand if this a delegation issue and what it works one way and not the other. delegation.PNG

User.Email() is something that PowerApps understands but the SQL datasource does not.  If you put it inside a variable it causes PowerApps to evaluate it and pass a 'fixed value' to the filter query thus avoiding delegation issues.
