Read, Write and Share: What's the Difference?
CNR Reports, Queries, Parameters and Folders include a level of security called Permissions, in addition
to the security that is provided in the Administrative Management Interface.
Permissions can be
granted to each User and/or Role for certain Parameters, Queries and Reports available within Cizer.Net
Reporting. Each User and Role can be granted the right None (no rights), Read, Write or Share to a given item.
The table below demonstrates what tasks a user or role is allowed to perform based on the permission setting granted.
Why Bother With None?
Setting permissions to None is useful when you need to exclude a small number of users that belong to a Role with permissions
to an item. For example, you might have 30 Users that belong to the Analyst Role. The Analyst Role has been given Read permission to
a report that returns sensitive data. Two new employees will be added to CNR as Users with the Analyst Role, but until their probation
period is complete, they are not allowed to view this sensitive data. Rather than take away the Read privilege of the Analyst Role and
have to then grant it to each of the 30 Users who need to run this particular report, you can simply exclude the two new Users that also belong to
the Analyst Role by setting their permissions for this report to None.
What a Character!|
So the new sales associate would like her Cizer.Net logon ID to be $4ME. How cute, you tell her, but it canít be done. Itís not that vanity login IDs are against company policy, but Reporting Services does not allow certain characters, such as the dollar sign, to be used in a folder name. So whatís that got to do with her Cizer.Net logon ID?
When a user is created in Cizer.Net, SQL Server Reporting Services simultaneously creates a user folder of the same name. When a user runs a report, a copy is saved in their Reporting Services folder. Reporting Services does not allow any of the following characters to be used in a folder name:
; ? : @ & = + $ , \ * < > | " / ,
If you try to create a Cizer.Net User containing any of these characters the following message will display in red below the toolbar: Reporting Services error creating directory for the user. Hopefully your new sales associate will be satisfied using these characters in her vanity password, which isnít stored by Reporting Services.
