    I have done a sql report but my users cannot access it from their .NET application as I didnt give permissions to the end user.Do I need to set up permissions to the users who wants to just view the report, I dont think so? so How can the end user view my developed reports.

    Thanks!

    What is the authentication method used to connect?
    If they use windows only then they should have privileges to view the reports. May check RS books online for more information.

    I am using windows authentication. Do I need to give authentication in the report manager by creating some group?

    Thanks!

    I am using a windows group in my reporting services but when a user access reports it is denying the access becuase its looking for specifc windows id and not just a windows group.


    Thanks!

    Hi
    I am trying to give access to browse reports for all Id's in the windows group, but it doesnt work, why so?
    If I add a new user like say "DOWDAdraj" where DOWDA is a windows group and draj is user account, it works fine BUT
    If I add "DOWDA" its not working. I am doing so expecting that it gives access to all of the users in the group.

    Thanks!
