SQL Server Reporting Services SSRS Report Manager is Allowing Access to All Domain Users

We are having a problem where we can't seem to restrict access to our SSRS Report Manager - at https://ourserver.com/reports.  Any user that we create inside our Active Directory can access and make changes in Report Manager.  We can correctly set permissions for the Web Service URL - https://ourserver.com/reportserver.  For instance, right now there are only two users with any access for site settings or folder settings.  There are no security groups granted permissions.

We have tried creating a new security group with no rights and then creating a new user which is only a member of this new security group.  Still, it can login and get full access to Report Manager.

We are using SSRS 2008 on Windows 2008 Server - with a Windows 2008 Active Directory.

I believe it may be because you need to make sure the users getting all the access are not in a role that is giving them all these permissions. Check your role assignments. Here is a SQL site with information on setting role assignments.

Thanks for the thought.  As I mentioned above, the user is in a new role with no permissions.

Meanwhile, I was able to resolve this via the following post.
