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.
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.
