A user requires create/view permissions on the root folder to create a report
Consider the following structure:
If we grant create/view permission on folder2 for that user he will be able to create/view the report in folder2, however he will be able to create a report under the root folder too (which is not desired).
As well, in the Browser, a user will select the folder he's entitled to see and create a report under it. However if the user clicks on root, a report will be created there.
If we grant Create permission for a specific folder, the uCMDB Browser non-admin users should be able to create reports only in that specific folder AND NOT within Root folder.
