The only permissions required for this functionality relate to the report access that a user has.
Therefore, the reports that appear within the "Reports" charm on the specific record type, translate directly to the reports the user has access to via Security Groups.
*Note* If you utilize custom Security Groups with Advanced Permissions, please verify intended access to "Reports" fields and pages within the Security Groups that require the functionality:
For more information on created custom Security Groups with Advanced Permissions, please see the following article titled "Beyond - Creating Security Groups with Advanced Permissions".
