    You can create a custom job role for report access security.  Since OTBI subject areas are secured by job roles, you should design the custom job role in consideration for both subject area & report folder security.  Rebecca Emerson has published a white paper in Customer Connect that has detailed steps on how to configure custom job roles to secure OTBI subject areas & report folders.

      Hi Avaneesh,

      Yes you can do that the catch being how do you create such a role that would only have access to this Report Set.

      Why dont you try either of below options :

      a) Manually assign specific users read, write execute access to each one of this reports

      Can you please elaborate who all will use the report. Is it the Report Creator or is it Report Creator + Some Other Users.

      Do all them holds some specific Job Roles and Responsiblities.

      Have you tried saving all these reports in a specific custom folder and control folder access

      Regards
