Setting up report users

Use this procedure to add new users, roles, or groups to a report. You can pick users to add from a list of available system users or you can copy a list of users from another report.

Note: Any users that you specify on the report's schedule override the users that you specify on the report.

Users and roles default into Reporting Services Passed In Request Parameters from the authentication method that you specify during the Framework Services installation. For more information, see Creating a custom group.

  1. Open the Tools dashboard and select My Reports. The Reports screen is displayed.
  2. Click the report's details link. The Report Details screen is displayed.
  3. Click Report Users to open the Report Users screen and do one or more of the following:
    • Add preexisting users or security groups.
    • Delete a user from this report by clicking Delete.
    • Modify the permissions for any user by clicking Permissions and change the inherited status for the permission. This setting inherits the status of the default state of the permission. To change the default permission of a single user, click that user's Override link.
    • Copy default permissions from an existing report by clicking Copy From and select the source report.
    • Return to previous default permissions status by clicking Restore Defaults.
  4. If required, select Automatically assign these user permissions to the report instances as they are created.
