I have a need to allow certain users the ability to create folders and linked reports within specified folders, but I don't want them to be able to put actual reports in those folders. Is there a magic combination of permissions I can put on a role that will allow this? I'm assuming the "Create linked reports" permission applies to the source report that's being linked, and I'm not sure if linked reports fall under "Manage reports" or "Manage resources".
(For the curious, I want to be able to differentiate between the people developing and deploying reports to a designated location, and people linking those reports to directories that certain end users will have access to.)
Just to make it clearer what I'm trying to do... Say I've got two directories on the report server: Base Reports, and Sales Department. I want the developers to be able to create reports in Base Reports (no problem there). I also want to allow another group to be able to create linked reports in Sales Department which are based on reports within Base Reports. I do not want this group to be able to create actual reports within Sales Department.
In order to allow the second group to create linked reports based on what's in Base Reports, I set Create Linked Reports permission on the Base Reports directory. What do I have to set on Sales Department to allow them to put the linked reports in there, without allowing them to create actual reports?
