I am setting up the security for SSRS.

For a user who will only need to see report reports should I only assign them to the 'Browser' role.

I have a user setup with the 'Browser' role and their System Role Assignments is set to 'System User'.

They still however can see the 'Data Sources' folder.

Is there a way in which I we can stop them seeing this folder?

I now becomes hidden for everyone including me. How do I unhide it or have it hidden for some users and visable for others?

That does work. But when I click show details using an account with just the 'Browser' role I can still see the 'Data Sources' folder.

have you tried having a separate folder for the datasources and then putting security on that?
