How do I add my permission back into a folder
Posted on 2013-11-07
I have a 2008 R2 Reporting Services box. I am the admin and I have my own domain account.
Earlier today I accidently deleted my account and the admin account from the permissions of one of the folders (and left two users with only browse permissions). In other words, when I clicked on Security and went to the Edit Item Security I accidently deleted my account and left two other user accounts with Browse only permissions - just the opposite of what I wanted to do. Now I can't see the folder (or reports). And the two users that can, only have Browse permissions.
How do I get my account back in the security list?
Since I take care of the database as well I have access to the ReportServerDB if that helps at all.
One thing I was thinking I could give one of the two individuals who have rights, full control rights and have them add me in. I'm not sure how that would work or what the impact might be.
How can I fix this? Or is there a way to delete the folder and recreate the folder, then I could deploy the reports back in?
