Hi Guys,

I create a report and deploy and its working fine. Now the next step is giving proper rights to users to excess this report through web.
I have to add atleast 25 users who can acces this report. Its not worth to type all users one by one and give a rights for REPORT/DataSource/DataSet.
I am sure there is a way to create a Group of users and add that group in REPORT/DataSource/DataSet. Next time if we want to add any new
users just add in the Group.
Is someone can help me to create a Group of users in SQL or SSRS.

Thanks in advance.

You have to create a Windows AD group and then add the users to that group, Grant the necessary permission for this AD group, add \ delete users in the AD group.

AD groups are Active Directory groups and if you're lucky enough to have people who deal with networks, then they'll know what it means and how to set it up. When this is set up, you can name the AD Group as a user in your reporting solution and all the users in the group should be able to access the reports.
