Hiding the Subreport in SSRS Report Manager

Hello there,

I have a SSRS report that I deployed to the Report Manager, it has a subreport which depends on the main report. The report is running just fine.  Bu tthe problem i am facing is the end users who access the Report Manager get to see both reports, is there a way to visually hide the subreport in Report Manager?. I tried the Hide in the Tile View but I still get to see the report when users go to the Reportserver. Please help.

Are you sure it still shows in Tile View.  It will show in Detail View.
Run this query to verify if the report is actually hidden.
SELECT Path, Name 
FROM ReportServer.dbo.Catalog 
WHERE Hidden = 1

Open in new window

Thanks for your feedbacks.

Are you sure it still shows in Tile View.  
It is not showing here,but in the detail View the user can see. This subreport I want to hide as it depends on the main report. there has to be some way out. i tried to remove permission on this subreport which hides the subreport but then the user get permission error when they click on the main report to view the subreport.

It's not designed this way.
It makes sense that the detail view should only be available to admins and content managers.

I am sorry what I was trying to say was the following
The current functionality of being able to see a Hiden report in the Detail View is by design.

You can hack the ReportingServices.css file which I do not recommend, but this will only hide the "Detail" button itself, but it's for all including administrators

As an Admin I think Microsoft should change their design to only give Admins and Content Managers the ability to view hidden objects in the Detail View.
