This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do the users with viewer permissions have access to the entire site, or only the one library? The report library may contain additional resources like data connections and the security to each of those locations will also be required. – Mike Oryszak Sep 20 '11 at 15:48
Yeah they have access to the entire site. Im using excel services for displaying charts and graphs in these pages but the viewers have been given read permissions also on that document library containing the excel file. – Aabid Ali Sep 21 '11 at 6:30
