Report/Query Filtering

Reports and Saved Searches are defaulted to only be seen by the users who create them and users any of the Administration permissions (except for User Administrator) enabled.

Report Access
  • In all cases having Can access and maintain Administration functions (or Sys Admin ) provides access to view any Saved Search, Query, Report or Report Schedule as well as edit capability; having Allowed Read Only access to Administration information provides access to view any report or schedule but does not allow edit capability unless the user has edit permissions without the Can access and maintain Administration functions attribute.
  • Report Writer report “Shared access” means a user can access a Report that is Shared with Everyone, Shared with the User specifically, or Shared with a group the User is a member of.
  • Saved Search report “Shared” access means Shared with Everyone.
  • Saved Searches will be limited by Organization IF the user is in an Organization that is Internal. (Queries and Reports are not limited by Organization at this time).
