PBIRS Could not load folder contents

Hi,

 

I installed PBIRS, configured it, and it works, but not correctly. When I go to localhost/reports it is ok, and I can se site, etc. But when i try to go to this site (IPadress/reports) from another PC, this site shown, but i get comunicate: "You are not allowed to view this folder". As i gues, this is becouse it doesn't have permissions but I don't know how to give it on this PC/account.

 

I saw some posts, like this one for example https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Report-Server/How-to-access-the-Power-BI-Report-Server-reports-remo... but when i go to site settings -> security, only thing I can do ist to edit permissions for administator and add new user, but when I try to do it, I see: "The user or group name 'user3' is not recognized."

 

Thanks for any help,

Have a nice day 🙂

Re: PBIRS Could not load folder contents

Hi @Xax,

 

1. Please use the same URL IPadress/reports on the server with admin permission, check if you can access the web portal. 

2. When granting a user/group permission to access report server, please enter a Windows domain user or group account in this format: <domain>\<account>. For more information, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/security/grant-user-access-to-a-report-serve...

Re: PBIRS Could not load folder contents

Thanks for Your help @v-qiuyu-msft,

 

I tried to make user as WORKGROUP\<name> (i found my domain is WORKGROUP, but I'm not 100% sure it is it) and it still doesn't work.

But I made group named "Users" and I don't know why, but it works. I gave that group permissions and now I can login and see reports from other PC in my localgroup.

So, it helps in 50% for me, but I probably missunderstood something and if it is true I'd be glad if You correct me.

Re: PBIRS Could not load folder contents

Hi, 

 

I migrated my SQL report to Power BI report server and as I tried to open if from reports link, I encountered the same error "Could not load folder contents". Though I can access reportserver as expected. I also did the same of what you did (BUILTIN/Users) and still I encounter the same. Any thoughts?
