When allowing users to access SSRS Report Manager, do Windows Users/Group have to be assigned to a site-wide System role AND then assigned to an item role, or can they just be assigned to an item role Browser (for example) at the Home / Folder level?

Also, I am having issues creating Subscriptions for certain reports - the only thing that fixes this is assigning the account that the Reporting Services service is running under as a SysAdmin in SQL. I didn't think this account affected Report Manager security, but instead was all controlled through System/Role based security via Report Manager?

Hi Shindle,

Users can just be assigned the item level security, e.g. Browser role. Obviously they need to be able to navigate to the item so need Browser on the folders below. The System roles are purely administrative.

Subscriptions create SQL Agent jobs. In order for SSRS to create and run these you need to make sure the user SSRS is running as has assigned the RSExec and SQLAgent Operater, User and Reader roles on MSDB.

Probably also needs RSExec on Master and db_owner and RSExec on ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB.

Hope this helps.
