SSRS Browser role.

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?

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.
