  • 1.  SSRS Permissions Using AD Group

    Posted 20 days ago

    Does anyone have experience using AD Groups with Browser-only access in SSRS?  I've heard using AD Groups is not desired due to inconsistent behavior. I have hundreds of users in an AD group that needs access to SSRS reports.  When I add the AD group with Browser permissions, users seem to have access to all functions (Download, Delete, Manage, Folder Settings, and Site Settings!).  If the user is removed from the AD Group and set up individually as a browser, they only have browser functions (as desired).

    I've been working with our GP Partner and Microsoft on this, but we're not getting anywhere.  We've checked everything in security, and it all seems to point back to the AD Group not behaving as expected.  I'm not looking to troubleshoot anymore, but I would like to know if anyone has encountered this issue. Thanks!

    We've also gone through this:  Microsoft Dynamics Community

    We've gotten this question a bit lately, so figured it made sense to put it out to the public as a reference that can be found fairly easy, when you are setting up and deploying the SQL Server Reporting Services (SRS) reports for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

    Hi Jim,

    IMHO - AD Groups are the ONLY way to go with SSRS!  That's all I use and it works great.  I'm guessing there is a inherited permission from an upper folder that's messing things up.  Give me a yell and I can help you figure it out.
