Customize Report Access

Customize group permission to Analytics tools, report suite tools, metrics, and dimensions.

Add New Group > Report Access

The Report Access section on the Define User Group page provides access categories that enable you to customize permissions at a granular level.

For example, you can create a group with access to multiple Analytics tools (Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, and Report Builder), with permission to specific metrics and dimensions (including eVars), and capabilities like segment or calculated metrics creation.

What You Should Know about Permissions

Item Description

Administrator access / predefined groups

Predefined groups are no longer required for administrators. Administrators now have access to all items (tools, metrics, dimensions), as well as Web Service access, Report Builder, Activity Map, and Ad Hoc Analysis.

The purpose of groups is to grant or restrict access to non-administrative users.

Custom groups

Custom groups have replaced predefined groups. Existing predefined groups will be migrated to custom groups, using the same group name. Any custom groups that you have created, including their settings, will be preserved. However, you will notice that the location of settings will have moved. For example, Company settings (in Customize Admin Console) are now in Customize Analytics Tools.

Users belonging to All Report Access have been migrated to a custom group with access to:

  • All Dimensions
  • All Metrics
  • All Report Suites
  • Channel Report Permission
  • Anomaly Detection Report Permission
  • Real-Time Report Permission
  • Analysis Workspace Access Permission

Administrators can delete custom groups and create their own, as all settings that were previously available in predefined groups are available for customization under the Report Access settings in Define User Groups.

Dimension-Level Permissions

You can customize permissions to include or exclude access to dimensions (in addition to metrics).

  • All current dimensions and metrics within custom groups have been automatically migrated to the new categories. If an existing group has metrics enabled, it will be given all newly permissionable dimensions (eVars and content aware) and metrics by default.

  • Classifications Importer (formerly, SAINT) permissions: Access to classifications is determined by access to the variable on which the classification is based.

See Customize Dimension Permissions.

Enterprise Dashboard

Recommended only for new customers or customers with companies provisioned in the Marketing Cloud. A migration for existing Analytics customers to the Marketing Cloud identity management system is planned.

More information is available in Permissioning Quick Reference.

Content Aware

Content Aware includes variables that let you manage the permissions on metrics related to Marketing Cloud solution integrations. You can manage permissions on Social, Mobile, or any other data that was inserted through a Marketing Cloud integration. These will be enabled by default.
