Managing reports for Scout Dashboard

Reports that have been saved to the database are globally available and can be used by all authorized Scout administrators (base right: Report Generator) in the Scout Report Generator. Additionally, all reports stored in the database can be used in Scout Dashboard.

The availability of reports in Scout Dashboard can be restricted by means of the report management in the Scout Console: Here, you can assign reports to AD users or AD groups, or vice versa.
