Report Server security using nested AD-groups



I've faced with a problem configuring access permissions to Report Server items.

For example, I have the following folder structure:

Main Folder -> FolderA -> ReportA


And the following security configuration:

Main Folder (AD_group_Main assigned to Browser role)

FolderA (AD_group_FolderA assigned to Browser role)

ReportA (AD_group_ReportA assigned to Browser role)


AD_group_ReportA is nested to AD_group_FolderA.


UserAcoount1 is a member of AD_group_Main and AD_group_ReportA.


The problem is that UserAcoount1 has access to Main folder but it doen't see FolderA!


Could it be solved somehow?
