Problem with some scheduled report post upgrade from BI 4.2 SP3 to SP5

Post upgrade to BI 4.2 SP5 from SP3, some scheduled reports are now failing.

I get the following error:

Object failed to run due to insufficient security privileges.

How do I get this working again?

    you need to assign rights to a user for scheduling objects to different destinations

    ..

    see 2621878 - [How to] Control the Destinations options in the Scheduling menu of BI Launchpad in BI 4.2 SP05, and onwards

    • In Business Intelligence Platform Support Package 4 and earlier, there were no rights to assign Individual Rights for Each Scheduling Destination.
      There was only one right 'Schedule to destinations' for all destinations.
    • Starting BI 4.2 SP05, you can assign rights to a user for scheduling objects to different destinations like FTP, SMTP, SFTP, File System, and BI Inbox.

    • I understand this, I just need to be able to turn scheduling on for all folders for all user groups.

      Can I apply this to 'All Folders' and group 'Everyone' once and it will apply the ability to schedule to all subfolders regardless of whether or not a user has access to the subfolder or do I need to go through every folder and apply this access to schedule differently for every user/group?

      There are 30 user groups alone and many more folders, I just want it to be assigned as it was pre-upgrade to SP5, this will take many many many hours of work otherwise :(

    You can apply this steps for "All Folders" and "Everyone".

    But recommendation is to perform this for specific userGroups than "Everyone". Because in future if you create any user by default part of "Everyone".

    • I meant to do it even in folder level to specific user groups than "Everyone" .

      you can also try : CMC->User and User Groups -> Right Click and select User Security -> Add Principal
