I'm not sure how to tell the report type or what objects are being reported on since I can't open/edit the report. It's 4 years old sitting in a custom made folder, created by an admin years ago.

Report title: QTD Forecast Report

We have forecasting enabled in our org, although I don't think we actually use it currently. I'm not sure if I need some specific permission to access forecasting objects?

Any recommendations on how I can get more info on this report to figure out what permissions I need? I have the report ID from the URL, but it doesn't look like the SOAP API gives you much info about the report data itself.

Most likely, this report was built with Forecasts 1.0, which was officially retired in Summer '14. You could try to download the metadata into Eclipse/Mavensmate/Metadata Toolkit/Workbench/whatever-you-use-to-access-your-metadata, which might lead you to discover what the filters and so on originally were. There are now two different types of forecasting you can use; however, they have to be enabled before you can use them. You're going to have to build your new reports from the ground up, though, because there's no way to change a report's type.
