Prevent showing root folder when url is invalid - possible security issues

In Power BI Report Server portal, when user input any invalid url, e.g localhost/Reports/1212/21323/2323, the protal will redirect to http://localhost/Reports/browse

Is there a way to redirect / show "Error page" rather than redirect to root folder?

Just simply don't want to explore the root structure and give user access to the header (which has menu options ). It could lead to security issues.

 

Thanks

The menu content and the folders that a user can see are all restricted based on their permissions so being able to see the home folder should not lead to any security issues. What sort of issues are you worried about.

Re: Prevent showing root folder when url is invalid - possible security issues

thinking if someone just input a invalid url, then he / she could reach the browse page with your report root structures and menu options. I understand the permission settings will prevent them from seeing the content but why redirect to browse page is the only option?
