Quickly include 'Everyone' in security to view a report

    I am fairly new to SSRS 2016 and love the updated Report Server.  We are just now utilizing reports again and I have a published report that needs to have Everyone view access.  I tested using one person and it works fine (after also granting her view permission on the shared dataset too), but we have 1200 people.  How do I include 'everyone' in one fell swoop?

    Thanks

    Try using the Authenticated Users group (instead of the individual login you used when testing).

    Thanks Sue.  Using NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users seems to have worked
