Report Explorer, reports items and roles

edited November 2013 in End User

I'm searching for a good practice for filter the reports show in report
explorer based on a user role on the app.

basic scenario is
users in group A should only see reports 1,2,3
users in group B should only see reports 4,5,6
both groups should see reports 7 and 8.

I was looking in RBwiki, search the newsgroup but actually I can't figure
how to search for this need.

    Hi Marcos,

    This is not a built-in feature of the ReportExplorer however the
    ReportExplorer simply displays the data it is given. You could
    manipulate the Item and ItemUpdate queries to filter out the reports you
    do not want to show to certain users by altering the underlying SQL
    code. Do properly do this, you may need to also add a field to the
    Items table to keep track of which reports can be viewed by certain users.

    Best Regards,
