Making Report Available to Teachers

I'm having trouble making a SQL report available to teachers. I have made sure teachers have system permissions to view reports, and added "User with the selected role/s in the current report course - Teacher" on the report's permissions tab. The report appears in my Configurable Reports block on the front page (I'm an admin), but it's not in the block when I'm in a course I teach. Is there something else I should check? Do I need to write anything in the conditions field on the Permissions tab, or is it enough to just select from the drop-down menu?

Here is the XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<report version="2011040104"><visible><![CDATA[1]]></visible>
<name><![CDATA[Report Sandbox]]></name>
<summary><![CDATA[<p>Test to see whether a teacher can access this report</p>]]></summary>

I think one clue may be that you created the report on the front page, but are trying to access them within a course (a different context).

I don't know if there is another way to do it, but I had to add the Configurable Reports block directly in the course in which I wanted Teachers to use it. That way, they are in the same context.

Re: Making Report Available to Teachers

I had the same issue, and have struggled with it for a while now.

The workaround I did was create a system wide report role, which had the only attribute in it to view reports. Once this was done, anyone with permission on a report on the front page would see the block - anyone else would not see it.

Hope this helps.
