Preventing reports from being modified

To prevent other users from modifying a report you can use locking which freezes the properties of a report so that it cannot be modified. Other users are then only able to run a report; they will be unable to change column fields, Filters, Parameters, Sort Fields or add Aggregate Filters.

To lock a report:

1.  In Report Manager, select the report that you want to lock.

2.  Click the Lock button to lock your report.


3.  You will be prompted for a password and the report properties will immediately be unavailable.

NOTE: You cannot create and link to a locked report.
