I would like to restrict the users to view reports in SSRS 2008.i.e; I want the user to view only 2 reports out of 20.I tried creating a new user with appropriate role and gave the user only the permission to view the two reports. But I couldn’t achieve what I needed. The User was able to view all the reports.Please help out.

Use separate folders with different permissions and linked reports.

Permissions come from the container (folder) and it's bad practice to permission individually
