User Role Properties (Management Studio)

Use this page to view which tasks are included in an item-level role definition. You can also use this page to change the task list or modify a role description.

An item-level role definition is a named collection of tasks that users perform relative to a specific item (that is, a folder, report, resource, or shared data source). Role definitions are assigned to a user or group to create a role assignment in Report Manager. The tasks in the role definition describe what the user or group can do.

Reporting Services includes a number of predefined item-level role definitions that you can work with. You can modify the role definitions by changing the task list of each one. Editing a role definition affects all role assignments that include the role definition.

Note Note

User role assignments are used only on a report server that runs in native mode. If the report server is configured for SharePoint integration, this page displays read-only information about the roles and permission levels that are defined on the SharePoint site.

Name

Specifies the name of the role definition.

Description

Shows a description of the role definition. In SQL Server Management Studio, this description is only visible in this page. In Report Manager, this description helps users decide whether to use the role in a role assignment.

Task

Lists all item-level tasks that can be selected for this role definition. You can add or remove items from the predefined task list to define how users access a given item through this role. You cannot create new tasks, and you cannot modify existing tasks. The task list of a role definition appears only in SQL Server Management Studio.

Task Description

Provides information about each task. You cannot modify task descriptions.
