I submitted an RFE to IBM and would appreciate votes if this would help you, too!
- Option to allow Report Sharing and Related Reports access to users with No Access to the form (RFE ID 108263).
Allow users with “no access” to select related reports in embedded query sections and to have access to reports shared with directly with them.
- “No access” really means that users can still see data in embedded query sections in forms, they just can’t click through to the linked record. There are lots of potential benefits here as we could share reports with specific columns but not allow users to drill in and view data they shouldn’t.
- “Read Only” access, which I’ve heard as an alternative still allows users to click through query results and view data we may not want them to view.
