Hi,

I'm trying to make a report that:

If person x uses the report, it can only access reports that conserns him or her.

How is this possable?

Thank you.

P.S. My idea was to somehow get the windows user of the person using the report, and then use the windows user in your queries to check if the person has access or not.

You can return the windows user by using the expression:

=User!UserID

But you will still need a lookup set up to check the user groups, either using LDAP for active directory or something like DumpSEC to get local groups.

Are you looking to create one report with links to other reports they are allowed to see, or only show content in a report which the users can see?

I used a parameter in a query and gave it the default value = =User!UserID

Then I set the parameter to be hidden (checkbox in the parameter settings).
