Logi Report Server offers two types of privileges for users, groups, and roles: Publish and Advanced Properties. This topic describes how you can grant and remove the privileges for users, groups, and roles, as an administrator.
You need to have the corresponding privilege before you can perform certain task on the server. When you have the Publish privilege and at the same time the Write permission on a folder on the server resource tree, you are able to publish resources to the folder. When you have the privilege of Advanced Properties, you can view advanced information about version properties such as catalog connections and report related resources. By default, only the role "administrators" and the user account "admin" have the Publish and Advanced Properties privileges.
