Creating an SCCM report viewer role

Benoit LecoursSCCM2 Comments


What if you want to give a console user the rights to only run reports? This blog post will show how to create an SCCM report viewer role.

Microsoft doesn’t have include a way to only view reports in SCCM.

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

In SCCM, role-based administration combines security roles, security scopes, and assigned collections to define the administrative scope for each administrative user. An administrative scope includes the objects that an administrative user can view in the SCCM console and the tasks related to those objects that the administrative user has permission to perform. Role-based administration configurations are applied at each site in a hierarchy.

Here’s what to do to achieve this:

  • SCCM Console / Administration / Security / Security Roles
  • Right click on Read-only Analysts
  • Select Copy

  1. I no longer want my administrar this person has added service I didnot approve steal money change my permission.I want them off I no longer want micro soft services and no longer want this administrar I want to press charges against this person remove them asp they have commute a criminal. act and I’m pressing charge

  2. 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!
