Hi, we have security settings on the Home folder of our SSRS server with specified accounts having specified security settings. Everyone is not in there. I now need to add a new folder in the Home folder and give a new group access to that, and only that, folder. The new group is not a member of any of the groups that currently have permission to the Home folder. All folders have inherit security from the above folder. How do I get the new group to have permissions to their folder and *not* to the other folders? Do I have to give them permission to the Home folder and then turn off inheritance on all sub-folders? This seems a big job (there are 30+ sub-folders) and I'm wondering if there is a code-based solution or other shortcut?
What I usually do in this case is turn off inheritance for the new folder and give the group access just to that folder. Because of this they won't be able to see the home folder so I send them the link to the actual folder instead of the Home.
