SSRS uses a role-based security architecture for administrative tasks and access to items published to the report server. This course will teach you how to use all SSRS security features for a native mode report server.
After you install an SSRS instance on a server, you need to configure security so that authorized users can perform tasks and view content. In this course, Securing SSRS Reporting Solutions, you’ll learn about report server configuration options and how to secure report server content. First, you’ll explore your options for setting up the report server for access by administrators, report developers and publishers, and report consumers. Next, you’ll discover how to work with role assignments to manage the content that each type of user can view and the activities they can perform. Finally, you’ll learn how to manage security for data sources used to retrieve data for reports during processing. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of SSRS security configuration to successfully secure the reporting environment for your organization.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Stacia Varga, and welcome to my course, Securing SSRS Reporting Solutions. I'm a consultant and author at Data Inspirations, a company I founded back in 2006. Because reports provide users with access to an important and valuable asset for your organization, data, it's important to make sure that people can only do and see what they're supposed to be able to do and see. In this course, we're going to go through all the options that you have for implementing security and Reporting Services. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understanding and protecting report server vulnerabilities, the role‑based security architecture of Reporting Services, and considerations for data source configuration. By the end of this course, you'll know all the ins and outs of successfully securing your Reporting Services environment. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with creating Windows user logins and Windows groups, and you should know how to install Reporting Services in native mode. You should also have a basic understanding of Reporting Services architecture and the deployment process for reports. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to protect your reporting platform with the Securing SSRS Reporting Solutions course, at Pluralsight.
