Granting Permissions to Create Power Management Report Subscriptions in SCCM

With the role based administration controls (RBAC) in SCCM 2012 and above, a common way to grant access to reporting is using the built-in security role Read-Only Analyst.  This role grants access to view Configuration Manager objects, but also to run reports.  However, it does not grant permission to create subscriptions to these reports.  Subscription permissions are tied to other built-in roles.  For example, adding the Operating System Deployment Manager security role to a user would add the ability to create subscriptions to reports about OSD.  The only built-in role that grants permission to schedule Power Management reports, though is the Operations Administrator role.  Using custom permissions, we can grant the ability to create a subscription for all reports including Power Management.  These custom permissions will still honor any Security Scopes and Collections that are assigned to the Administrative User.
