Setting Permissions to View Global Reports

Specify who can see global reports, and group or space reports that they can access.

If you want a user or user group to view global reports, you need to assign them permission in the default space. You do this by customizing the default space and then creating a user override or adding a group. For more on permissions, see Managing Permissions in the core documentation.

The default space contains all of the community spaces and it is designed to be a community-wide template for setting permissions in new spaces. When new spaces are created, their permissions can be based on the default space's, if only as a starting point to customize.

Note: Users with permission to view global reports can also see reports in any group or space they can access.
You can customize the default space, setting commonly-used permissions that will make sense for new spaces to have. You can do this by either setting permissions for a single user (creating a user override) or setting custom permissions for a user group.
