Excel Reporting in Project Server 2010 (Authentication Mechanism followed while using Report Author and Report viewer user accounts) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am facing an issue where i need to know how report authors and report viewers authentication takes place when any users access a excel report. We have two groups in our organization ( Report Author and Report Viewer). User who creates report are added in Report Author and those who view reports are added in Report Viewer. I need to know how the users credentials are verified when they access a particular report because both groups(Report Author and Report Viewer have dbreader rights on the database.

    Excel service and secure store service has been configured as required by Project Server 2010.
