Creating and or customising user roles on Power BI report server

Hi, 

 

We are using Power BI report server March 2018. I have a dev server set up and I am trying to expand user access to allow users to create their own schedules and manage reports. It seems that I would have to assign "System Administrator" to do this. I have read other articles suggesting I can add roles and/or customise them. I can't find this facility anywhere! Is someone able to tell me how to do this?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Chris.

As a side note I can only get SSMS to connect to my PBI-SSRS instance if I use a URL instead of a servername/path. So somehting like http://SERVER_NAME/ReportServerPBI

on the powerbi report server web page, click on the gear button on the top right side, then go to site settings -> Security and here add the users and what role you want them to have. 

Also include the Domain of your network when entering the username like this : 'DOMAIN\username'

Thank you so much! That was the key. I thought that the reporting services in SSMS was not compatible with PBI as none of our servers were connecting. I NEVER would have thought to do this. Cheers.

really this is great.
