How to create a Report Viewer Role in SCCM 2012

What if you want to give a console user the rights to only run reports ?

Microsoft doesn’t have include a report viewer role in SCCM.

You could grant access to the “Read-only Analyst” role which will be enough to run report but maybe you don’t want them to see all nodes.

  1. The picture is inconsistent with the statement “Go throught(sic) each node and keep only Run Reports and Read to YES”. Can you clean this article up or combine it with the Report Administrator article.

    I love the site!
    Thanks,
