You can view the item-level roles in Report

You can view the item-level roles in Report Manager by navigating to the Site Settings page and then clicking the link Configure item-level role definitions. This will bring up the predefined item-level roles, as shown in Figure 13-2. The Browser role permits only navigating the folder hierarchy, viewing reports and resources, and managing their own subscriptions. The Publisher role permits report definitions to be uploaded and deployed, creating linked reports and some other report management tasks. A user assigned to the Publisher role cannot execute a report unless he or she is also assigned to the Browser role. The Content Manager role sits at the top of the trust scale. This role provides full administrative ability for managed report components such as folders, reports, resources, and shared data sources. The My Reports role is almost as powerful as the Content Manager role, but it is used only on each user s own special My Reports folder. If you select the Publisher role, you will see a detailed task-level permissions list with the privileges available reflected in the checked boxes next to the tasks (see Figure 13-3). These tasks are relevant only to the item-level security for folders and their contents. You can view the equivalent information using the SQL Server Management Studio by right-clicking on the security roles and selecting Properties from the pop-up menu. To modify the folder-level security permissions, edit the folder and navigate to the security properties page to view or modify the security settings for that folder. This page is available for items that you create or have permission to modify. You can also access this through SQL Server Management Studio by right-clicking on the folder and selecting Properties from the list that appears. You then will see the item-level security role assigned to specific user groups, as shown in Figure 13-4. Figure 13-2: Predefined item-level security roles in the Report Manager.
