Security Properties Page, Items (Report Manager)
Use the Security properties page to view or modify the security settings that determine access to folders, reports, models, resources, and shared data sources. This page is available for items that you have permission to secure.
Access to items is defined through role assignments that specify the tasks that a group or user can perform. A role assignment consists of one user or group name and one or more role definitions that specify a collection of tasks.
Security settings are inherited from the root folder down to subfolders and items within those folders. Unless you explicitly break inherited security, subfolders and items inherit the security context of a parent item. If you redefine a security policy for a folder in the middle of the hierarchy, all its child items, including subfolders, assume the new security settings.
Use the following procedure to navigate to this location in the user interface (UI).
