I would like to setup a windows group of people to view reports on a SSRS report server.
They can navigate the folders and view the reports.

I know I need to setup item-level permission to the folder and give them browser permission.

My question is: do I also need to add them to system level as a system user?
Is that a required step for permission to work?

Thanks

Do you mean on the SQL Server box itself? If so, no. If you are using Active Directory and the Windows group has been added and granted the appropriate permissions, it will suffice.

But I read from this site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa337385(v=sql.105).aspx
it says: Each user who requires access to a report server should have a system-level role assignment
also: b.Assign the System User role to all other users

Here I don't quite understand when it says requires access to report server, if I only want to grant permission to people to view the reports on the report server, does it mean "require access to report server", and do they have to be granted system_level access, then they can browse reports?

Thanks

Have you read through these two articles (related)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa337491(v=sql.105).aspx
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms156034(v=sql.105).aspx

I did, but I still did not get my question answered.

In the above article you give me:
it also says:

The two types of roles complement each other and should be used together. For this reason, adding a user to a report server is a two-part operation. If you assign a user to an item-level role, you should also assign them to a system-level role

So my understanding is even I just want to grant users to view reports, which is item-level access, I still need to add the users to system -level,

is this correct?

I manage permissions using ad groups to specific folders and none of them are system users and have had no complaints. Would be interested to see if I am doing something wrong though.

I'm not certain where the disconnect is happening but again, I just set users up via the report manager granting the permissions I'd like them to have at the folder level (role assignments)

I'd created an Accounting Reporting folder, then grant permissions based upon the Windows Active Directory security group that contains just the members I want to have access to it

Example: MYDOMAIN\Accounting Reporting
Role(s): Browser
