Report Builder, SSRS 2012, SharePoint 2010 - Only Allow Shared Data Sources
Researching this for a couple weeks, but still no solution I've found from Googling / Books. A user that has access to Report Builder can build report connecting to any data source including access databases on shared drives. I would like to restrict them from creating embedded data sources and require them to use share data sources only. Thanks again! raym

Hi Raym, From your description, you want to restrict users from creating embedded data sources, right? In your scenario, the users have the permission to access Report Builder, so there can create a data source to connect to database if they have login and corresponding permission in the database. If you want to restrict users from creating embedded data sources, you can remove the database permission of the users. If the users have their own database, they can still create embedded data sources. Regards,Charlie Liao TechNet Community Support
