I want some non-admin users to only see a certain folder and a view of a report hidden to them in another folder. Also run and schedule it.
I also have a folder with the packages and a folder with the reports themselves. I want to hide both of them from the non-admin users. I tried denying all permissions on both folders but this does not work because they can't run.
Are there any special considerations with views and packages?
Also, is there a way to reset permissions? because even when I delete the permissions I have set, they seem to change back to the change I did before instead of falling back to default. It is pretty weird.
I'm also encountering strange behaviour when I log ind and off with tipadmin and the other users. Sometimes I log as another user but I keep having the tipadmin clearance. I have to log out and in again with that user for the actual clearance to work.

Re: Permissions2013-02-19T14:05:24ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.If anyone is interested I solved the hiding part by marking the folder as hidden in the properties. Then I removed the users permission to hide/unhide folders.

All that is possible. I talk about things like this in here: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/files/form/anonymous/api/library/9641dcf4-c5b8-413c-8ae8-9c461dd84a09/document/2cb02ae0-4012-422e-b6e2-59c09c346305/media/Training_on_Security_Permissions.pdf
If it fits your use case, the easiest way is to use the predefined roles, like 'consumer'.
Hopefully that helps.
