Control which users and groups can see a report in their reports list.
You can control who sees reports by making them:
- Globally visible to all users.
- Visible only to the report creator.
- Visible to one or more specific users.
- Visible to one or more specific groups.
ACLs control access to the underlying table data. List reports require the reporting
user to satisfy ACLs on the target table to view records in the list. Users without
sufficient permissions may see filtered list reports.
Reports that present aggregate data, such as pie or bar charts, do not require the
user to satisfy target table ACLs to view the chart. These reports are not filtered
due to security, though may be filtered by an on-query business rule defined for the
target table. ACLs are required to view the list of records when you click on a
portion of a chart.
If a user saves global report as a group or personal report, the ServiceNow platform copies
the report rather than moving it from one security state to another. This allows
users who cannot create their own global reports to modify a global report, and then
save their own personal version of the report.
If a user opens a personal report and tries to save it as a group or global report,
ServiceNow moves the
report rather than copying it.
