Tasks and Permissions - Item-Level Tasks

An item-level task is a collection of permissions that relate to a report, folder, report model, resource, or shared data source. Reporting Services also includes system-level tasks that apply to the report server site as a whole. For more information, see System-Level Tasks. For more information about tasks and permissions in general, see Tasks and Permissions.

Note

If you are working with these tasks programmatically, you must use methods that support item-level tasks. For more information, see ListTasks and ListRoles.

Permissions in Item-Level Tasks

The following table lists item-level tasks, the permissions that are included in each task, and the items to which the permissions apply. Permissions are listed for informational purposes only to provide a more exact description of the functionality available through each task.

Shared datasets use the same set of permissions as reports. Report parts use the same set of permissions as Resources.
