Permissions Reporting 2.0

The Reporting 2.0 functionality is controlled by a series of permissions that allow you to create more specific reports by report field. For this reason, permissions are at more of a granular level with this functionality.

The permissions are broken down by the main product level permission, section level, and then at the field level. For example, if you wanted to report on Instructor Led Training (ILT) in the system, you would need:

  • The Reporting - Manage permission to create reports.
  • The Reporting - View permission to preview reports and view reports.
  • The top-level product specific permission to create reports related to that product.
    • e.g. Reporting - Learning - Manage
  • The section specific permission to create reports for that feature within the product.
    • e.g. Reporting - Learning - ILT - Manage
  • The field level permissions to be able to create reports with the specific fields for that feature within the product.
    • e.g. Reporting - Learning - ILT - ILT Facility - Manage

If a user does not have each level of permission, then they may not have access to the report builder, or the section may not be visible, or the fields within the section may not be visible. Also, if a user does not have the top-level product permission, then none of the fields for that product will be visible, such as the fields for LMS reports.

The power of this granularity of permissions is that you can give access to as many or as few fields as necessary for your users. For example, you may give users access to the User section but not give them access to the User Identifier section if that contains sensitive data for your portal.

If a user has all relevant permissions, but the corpsetting for a particular area is set to FALSE, any fields related to that section will still appear blank in a report. An example where this could occur is SCORM 2004 quiz data.

Note: When a user has a top-level, section, or field level permission, it is not necessary to also assign the Reporting - Manage or Reporting - View permissions since the more granular product specific permissions will give the user access to Reporting 2.0.

Note: Due to sensitivity, users who need to report on Gender, Ethnicity and Grade information, would need the following permissions in addition to the reporting permissions:

  • For Gender: User Upload - Gender
  • For Ethnicity: User Upload - Ethnicity
  • For Grades: View Grades
