    In the report manager (http://localhost/Reports, or whatever url is configured in the Configuration Manager) Press the black down arrow on the folder or the report you want to configure. Select the security option. Select "Edit Item Security" if the item inherits the security of its parents. Click New Role Assignment to set the permissions for the object. For more information check the documentation:

    SSRS works on Windows authentication. If user is in domain then automatically he/she has access.
