Using Default Security

Reporting Services installs with default security that is configured during setup. Default security is provided through role assignments that match the built-in local administrators Windows group with predefined report server roles. The predefined roles describe supported operations on the report server folder hierarchy as well as the system as a whole. Because built-in groups cannot be deleted, each report server is installed with the default role assignments in effect.
