Share a report in Adobe Workfront

Your Adobe Workfront administrator grants users access to view or edit reports when they assign access levels. For more information about granting access to issues, see Grant access to reports, dashboards, and calendars.

Along with the access level that users are granted, you can also grant them permissions to View or Manage specific reports that you have access to share. For more information about access levels and permissions, see How access levels and permissions work together.

Permissions are specific to one item in Workfront and define what actions one can take on that item.

A Workfront administrator can add or remove permissions to any items in the system, for all users, without being the owner of those items.

Access requirements

You must have the following to share objects:

Adobe Workfront plan*
Adobe Workfront license*

Note: If you still don't have access, ask your Workfront administrator if they set additional restrictions in your access level. For information on how a Workfront administrator can modify your access level, see Create or modify custom access levels.

Considerations about sharing reports

In addition to the considerations below, also see Share reports, dashboards, and calendars.

  • You can share reports that you create with other individuals, teams, groups, job roles, or companies. You can also share reports others created and which were shared with you.
  • You can also share them with your entire organization or make them public. Making a report public generates a URL that can be shared with others.
  • You can share an individual report, or you can share multiple reports from a list of reports.

Ways to share reports

You can share reports in Workfront in the following way:

  • Manually, as described in the Share a report section below.
  • Automatically, by inheriting View permissions from a dashboard that contains the report which has been shared. For information about viewing inherited permissions on objects, see View inherited permissions on objects.

    You can click Advanced Settings to specify whether you want the user or users to be able to Delete the report from the system and Share it with anyone in the system.

  4. (Optional) Repeat the 2 previous steps to add other names to the list and configure their options.

  5. (Optional) Click the Gear icon in the upper-right corner of the sharing box, then select one of the following options:

    • Make this public to external users: Select this option to generate a URL that can be shared with others. Anyone with the URL can access the report, without having an Adobe Workfront license.

      note caution
      We recommend that you use caution when sharing an object containing confidential information with external users. This allows them to view information without being a Workfront user or part of your organization.
      note note
      If the report has a prompt and you share it publicly, the users running the report must be logged in to Workfront to be able to run the report using the prompt. If they cannot log in to Workfront, they will see the report without the prompt applied to it. For more information about limitations of sharing reports with prompts, see the section Limitations of sharing prompted reports in the article Add a prompt to a report.
    • Make this visible system-wide: Select this option so that everyone in Workfront with access to reports can see the report.

  6. Click Save.
