System Role Properties (Management Studio)
Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
Use the System Roles page to view the system role definitions that are currently defined for the report server. A system role definition contains a named collection of tasks that are performed relative to the entire site, instead of an individual item. Role definitions are assigned to a user or groups to create a resulting role assignment. The tasks in the role definition specify what the user or group can do.
Reporting Services has two predefined system role definitions: System Administrator and System User. You can modify these role definitions by changing the task list, or you can create a new system role that supports a different combination of tasks. Editing a role definition affects all role assignments that include the role definition.
System 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 is not available.
