Without understanding your requirements in more detail, it sounds as though you may need to use Data Driven delivery. Take a look at the configuration of the Report Definition:


Printer based data delivery is only available from Tools Release 9.1.3 onwards.

If not using Data Driven delivery to define the printer, then BI Publisher should respect the printer selected when the version was submitted to the server. Therefore use P98616 to define the default printer for each user/role.
