New System Role / Edit System Role Page

SQL Server 2000

Use the New System Role or Edit System Role page to create a new system role definition or to edit an existing one. A system role definition specifies a set of system-level tasks that apply to a report server as whole. Editing a role definition affects all role assignments that include the role definition.

To open this page, on the Site Settings page, click Configure system role definitions. You can then click New Role to open New System Role, or click an existing role definition to open Edit System Role page.



Specify the name of the role definition. A role definition name must be unique within the report server namespace.


Type information about the role to indicate the tasks it supports. Other users must decide whether to use this role based on the description you provide.


Displays a predefined list of system-level tasks to be supported by the role you are creating or modifying. You cannot add, delete, or modify system-level tasks.

Task Description

Displays information about what the task supports. Each task is a container for multiple permissions. The task description conveys the underlying permissions that are associated with the task.


Delete the current role definition. Deleting a role definition also deletes all role assignments that include the definition.

Copy Role

Open a New System Role page, initialized with the task selections for the current report definition.
