New System Role Assignments / Edit System Role Assignments Page (Report Manager)
Use the New System Role Assignments or Edit System Role Assignments page to define security for the report server. All security is defined through role assignments that map specific users or groups to the tasks that they can perform. The task list is represented as a role definition that you select when making the role assignment.
At the system level, the role assignments that you create or modify apply to the report server as a whole. For example, the ability to create shared schedules is specified at the system level because shared schedules are used throughout the system.
By default, Reporting Services provides two predefined system level roles:
System User includes tasks that allow users to view report server properties and shared schedules, and to execute report definitions, which allows users to view clickthrough reports that have been published to the report server. Most users should be assigned to this role.
System Administrator includes tasks for creating and managing shared schedules, setting server properties, and creating system-level role assignments for other users. Few users require permissions at this level.
Use the following procedure to navigate to this location in the user interface (UI).
