This enhancement provides advanced password protection with encryption to ensure your reports containing vital data are secure. Using this, you can add a deeper level of security to file outputs when a report (ad hoc/ standard) is exported or emailed.
Business users now have an option to password-protect the exported reports (XLSX/DOCX/PPTX/PDF). A Boolean prompting of “Password Protect Document” appears for business users when exporting or scheduling a report. The password can be created programmatically by the designer using the data fields from the report data source and/or report scripting or a combination.
Below is an example screen that shows a checkbox to password protect the report output.
