Authenticated, when deploying the reports(SSRS 2008) to a sharepoint site

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I created reports in SSRS 2008 for a sharepoint list. But when I tried to deploy it to the report library I used to get an authentication pop-up box again and again. I used all the username and password. But no luck. Does any one knows how to overcome this situation.

Deploying SSRS Reports from Visual Studio 2010 to Report Manager 2008


Our Report server is using Report Manager 2008. Previously I would load reports to it that I created via BIDS. Now I have to use VS 2010. I see that I can build and deploy reports there. Can I send it from VS 2010 to the REport manager 2008 on the other machine? I should add that now i have to develop on laptop only before i was on the server.

If not what are my options? I recall that vs 2005 objects were not taken in Report manager 2008.

SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode - Not able to schedule reports.



I am unable to schedule report am getting following error when trying to schedule an SSRS report from ReportViewer Webpart in SharePoint 2010.

  • The current action cannot be completed. The user data source credentials do not meet the requirements to run this report. Either the user data source credentials are not stored in the report server database, or the user data source is configured not to require credentials but the unattended execution account is not specified. (rsInvalidDataSourceCredentialSetting)

I have SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode on Win 2008 R2 System.

I have also setup the unattended execution account from the Reporting Services Configuration Manager, which has appropriate privilates on the database to generate report.

Also, I have reporting webservice setup @ following url (am using the named instance of SQL Server):


Am able to view the report from report viewer webpart but unable to schedule it.

Kindly let me know what's going wrong.

Thanks in Advance,

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

Share Point integrated SSRS reports rendering when access from external site


Our client has a SharePoint (moss2007) site on Windows 2008, SQL2008 R2 Enterprise, and Reporting service is integrated with SharePoint

The authentication on the share point integration is set to windows, else the authentication for the SSAS datasource gives and error

The extranet zone ( forms) and intranet (Customer Forms) and default (Windows) zones are all access from inside the firewall and the reports render in each with no issues, as the datasources are configured to pass a sql username and password.

However, report rendering is a problem from the internet (external site), the following error is displayed:

An unexpected error occurred while connecting to the report server. Verify that the report server is avai

SSRS - Where are the Sharepoint Report Usage Reports provided by Microsoft



Microsoft provided 3 example reports for Sharepoint report usage. Does anyone know where they are located? I used them about 2 years ago.




Schedule reports with integrated authentication SSRS 2008

Hi All,  Having an issue with SSRS 2008 at the moment, trying to setup subscriptions. Our system is configured so that any one of 10 users can login to the SSRS website using their windows domain account, and then launch report builder to design and save reports.  This all works very well, however, they have a problem when trying to setup subscriptions - the famous "Subscriptions cannot be created because the credentials used to run the report are not stored....." What the message says is true - the credentials are not stored as they are supplied by the user when they login to report builder. Is the /any/ workaround at all that doesn't involve storing the credentials?  It seems totally crazy that they cannot be prompted for them when setting up the subscription.  For this application its 100% essential to make the user provide their credentials when running reports, because they each see a filtered subset of the data in the report model (this is controlled DB side depeding on the login account), so their domain account needs to be passed to SQL server to enable this filtering to work.  If we saved their credentials then they would see all the data..and thats nasty. The only workaround I can come up with would be to create  a separate datasource for each user and upload a separate model, but thats really nasty to be hones

SSRS 2008 R2 - Sharepoint list item hyperlink bug?

I have created a report based on a sharepoint list and I am using a subscription in WSS 3.0 to email the report to the users once a week. I want one column in the report to act as a hyperlink to the sharepoint list item but in the email version of the report, the URL has the list item ID repeated twice, which renders the link invalid. Initially, I tried using the 'Encoded Absolute URL' from the sharepoint list query to populate the hyperlink but this just gives a 404 NOT FOUND error and I have found documented in several places on the web that this link only works with document libraries. So instead, I decided to create the URL for the action using an expression, like this: ="http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=" & ListItemID.Value This works perfectly in the development environment and when people run the report for themselves in the sharepoint document library where it is deployed but, for some reason, if I send the report on a schedule then I get the ID parameter repeated at the end twice. Like this: http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=999&ID=999 I have tried rendering the report in several different formats (Word, PDF, MHTML, HTML) and they all seem to work fine in the development and when run within SharePoint but not when they are rendered and emailed using the scheduler. Is this a bug or am I missing so

SSRS 2008 SP1 - Enabling "My Reports" allows users delete reports in folders they should not be able

Issue: Users that have “My Reports” SSRS Role assigned to them can delete reports in other “shared” folders. My understanding was that they will be able to do the tasks specified only  in the “My Reports” workspace not everywhere. I have “My Reports” enabled via SSMS. Users have “My Reports” role assigned to them at the root level. My SSRS Role “My Reports” has only the following tasks assigned: 1.       View Reports 2.       Manage reports 3.       View Folders 4.       Manage Folders To test, I'm using Development version of SQL Server 2008 SP1. Thanks in advance, Martina

SSRS 2008- redirect to /Reports virtual directory?

We have just configured a new SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 server. So far, everything is going well, with the exception of one thing: we want anyone who hits the root of the webserver to be redirected to the /Reports virtual directory. So, if the user enters http://servername.domain.com/ it would redirect to http://servername.domain.com/reports. In SSRS 2005, it was easy to configure IIS to do this, but with SSRS 2008, I cannot figure out how to make this change. Help?

SQL Server 2008 R2 deploying any version of sharepoint results in extremly slow DB creation

Hello, When installing any version of Sharepoint(2007,2010) during the "Creating Configuration Database" Step it takes over 10 hours to complete.  Then creating a web app takes just as long. and the sites are extreemply slow.  Environment: 1) DB Server - SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 2) Webserver - to host Sharepoint 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2 The Servers are on the same network and running with lots of horsepower, disk and memory.  Are there any know issues with this and should we install Cummulative Update 3? Maybe that has a fix.  We exhausted all our options and need justification to apply the CU3 hotfix(s). Thanks for your help.

Are there workarounds for SSRS 2008 Reports that have issues in SSRS 2008 R2

We have some SSRS 2008 reports which have a few issues in SSRS 2008 R2: - Page Numbering: Our reports use [PageNumber] of [TotalPages] however, in R2 [Total Pages] only relates to a particular section.  Do we really need to update every single report in design mode to use [OverallTotalPages]?  Is there a workaround? - Report Rendering: Each page of a report is only rendered when each new page of the report is requested.  How do we prevent this is R2? - Missing Data: If we run a report that should have 50 pages of data, not all pages are shown when viewing the report.  For example, only 2 pages might show.  However, if we export to PDF the whole 50 pages are exported.  Does anyone know why this is happening? Looking for patches, workarounds, etc.  Hoping that we don't need to upgrade desktops to R2 and edit hundreds of reports to fix these issues. Thanks, Howie999

SSRS 2008 Against OLAP Cube reports rendering slow in IE 6 and IE8

We have SSAS cube built on SQL Server 2008 that has multiple parameters that have a default vault on running of all. The first time we run the report it renders the report in less than 30 seconds, but when we change one value on the data cube pull the reports can take up to 5 mins to run. If I do the same report in Firefox 3.6 it renders the report in 30 seconds. I have change changing the cache size in the IE explorer and ave the latest .net frame work on the computer. What would be causing this issue? The company upgrade from SSRS, SSIS, SSAS, SQL 2005 to 2008. Please advice, this is very annoying for our business end users.   Thanks for your help in advance.

Win server 2003+ Sharepoint 2007+SQL Server 2008 ,reports view issue?


I hope someone may shed some light on a serious obstacle encountered on a client site:

We have implemented a SharePoint integrated report services solution for the client on a single server

Server = Windows 2003

SQL = 2008

MOSS 2007

Web application = servername:8888 (default) - windows auth

Web application extension 1 servername:8889 (extranet) forms auth

Web application extension 2 servername:8887 (intranet) forms auth

Reports are visible and can be run (renders) on internal sites

However, there is an external site which allows users to access the reports - the issue is, the reports then dont run and I get this:

"An unexpected error occurred while connecting to the report server. Verify that the report server is available and configured for SharePoint integrated mode."

Though I have not actually seen the firewall config of the AAM, the client assures me it has been setup properly.

If the AAM is setup correctly, what could be the problem? The server is clearly available and confgured in SharePoint integrated mode.


has anyone experienced the scenario where clients want to publish their reports on an external site? What can one do to see any errors other than the one line message (tried enabling custom errors, but no good)

SSRS Reports Not updating in Sharepoint 2007


Hello All,

I created some reports in SSRS 2008, The reports data source is a live transactional data source. The reports are to auto refresh every minute displaying any new info that  was put on to the system in the last minute. The auto refresh property on each report is set to 60 sec. to trigger the refreshing of the reports.

The problem: when i run the reports in the report manager the every thing works fine, the report runs, refreshes, and the figures are updated.

I am now displaying these reports in Sharepoint 2007 via the "report viewer" facilitated by the RSWebPart that i installed on the Sharepoint instance. 

The reports are displayed fine in the viewer, but my problem is that it does not auto refresh with the updated info.


I figure it is a caching issue but how to get around? HELP!
