In organizations that use only the default administrator account (admin), everyone who uses the Forcepoint Security Manager has access to all reporting settings and tools. In organizations that use delegated administration, access to reporting settings and tools is controlled by members of the Super Administrator role (see Editing roles).
Administrators with access to reporting settings have many options for customizing reporting in their environment.

An end user who uses the Filtering Service has no direct or indirect influence over the database. Thus, although the log entry is stored in the MSSQL database, the user did not direct its storage and cannot retrieve it.
The only interface to the database itself is from the Log Server, the Reporting services, and the Manager. Filtering Service and Content Gateway do not access the database, but instead send information via the Log Server.
