Hiding Reports in CMC but allowing access to them via hyperlinks

Pretty quickly after you start using Hyperlinks, you encounter a situation where you have a target report sitting on the server visible to everyone that
you don’t want people to be able to see/access on its own.

Luckily there is a method to hide reports from view, but still allow access via hyperlinks/opendoc. You can do this via CMC…

     1.Create following folders in this hirarchy,

       Parent Folder > Hidden Folder – > Child Folder.

       Parent Folder – Normal access

       Hidden Folder – No Access

       Child folder – Refresh on Demand Access

     2.Store the main report in the Parent folder

     3.Store your target report(s) in the Child folder

The hidden folder prevents the Child folder from being viewed/accessed, but the open doc functionality can still see/access the Child folder.
