Most likely, some of the tables queried is not in the chain of ownership. The user in question doesn't have to read from certain tables.

If you are not admin, ask them to look at the ownership chain. If a view is used for this purpose, then the view may include a table lacking proper ownership.

Sure. You need to see the SSRS as any application or website. Who will work with that need to have access to the database objects.

First of all, apart of the reports there is any other application that has access to the database?

Ok. Since it's only reports they will only need read permissions so you need to create their login and grant them the respective read permission and for that you can use the db_datareader role:
EXEC sp_addlogin 'DOMAIN\UserName' --> assuming that are AD users
GO
USE DatabaseName
GO
EXEC sp_addrolemember 'db_datareader','DOMAIN\UserName'

Open in new window

'domain\username' is not a valid name because it contains invalid characters.

In your sp, there must be a view or some tables queried. Make sure the users have right to reach the sachems the view or tables belong. It seems the ownership of some of those tables is not granted.

'domain\username' is not a valid name because it contains invalid characters.
Please substitute DOMAIN with your domain name and USERNAME with a valid user name. They are only an example and you should replace with real values.

Let replace it with the CREATE LOGIN command:
CREATE LOGIN [<domainName>\<login_name>] FROM WINDOWS;

Open in new window

I've realized now that I forgot the CREATE USER  statement. So this should be the complete script:
CREATE LOGIN [<domainName>\<login_name>] FROM WINDOWS
GO
USE DatabaseName
GO
CREATE USER [<domainName>\<login_name>] FOR LOGIN [<domainName>\<login_name>] WITH DEFAULT_SCHEMA=[dbo]
GO
EXEC sp_addrolemember N'db_datareader', N'[<domainName>\<login_name>]'

Open in new window
