Web Report Studio role controls which application behavior is available.
Metadata security on individual objects (data, reports, folders, or
even servers) controls access to those objects. For example, your
role might enable you to perform the task of e-mailing reports, but
you can e-mail only those reports to which you have been granted access.
Here are two examples of how data security might affect what an individual
SAS Web Report Studio user can see and do:
In a report that includes employee
information, two users in the same role might not see the same output.
For example, a user in the human resources department might have access
to a salary column that cannot be seen by a user in the sales department
who views the same report.
In a data source that contains
information about medical procedures, a user with the capability to
create new reports might not have access to the data item for patient
have questions about data security, contact your system administrator.
