Goodday All,

I try to give permission to a group in ssrs so that they can view the report in the report manager but when they click on it, they should not be able to open the report(depending on the rights they have).
It doesn't seem to be possible to display "reportnames" but block access to the report.
Does anybody know if this is possible and if it is, how to achieve this?

thanks

I worked on a SSRS project which we converted it to web based from Windows based.
to filter a report based on the user logged in , we added a column to the data table , so each row belongs to a particular group( US states for example ). using UserID report function to filter dataset.

a lot of details , may be an eye opener for you.

Unfortunately there isn't a way to do this natively. If you have rights to see the report in the list you can run the report. I can see a use case where you might want a user to know a report exists, but not be able to run it, but I would think that would be a rare case.
