Load SSRS RDL reports

20 Feb 20194 minutes to read

Report Viewer has support to load RDL reports from SSRS Report Server. To render SSRS Reports set the reportServerUrl, reportPath, and reportServiceUrl properties as in the following code snippet.

  • javascript
  • <div style="height: 100%; width: 100%;">
            <div style="height: 600px; width: 950px; min-height: 400px;" id="viewer"></div>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                $(function () {
                    $("#viewer").ejReportViewer({
                        reportServiceUrl: "/api/ReportsApi",
                        reportPath: "/SSRSSamples/Territory Sales",
                        reportServerUrl: "http://mvc.syncfusion.com/reportserver"
                    });
                });
            </script>
        </div>

    NOTE

    Report Server URL should be in the format of http://<servername>/reportserver$instanceName
    The report path should be in the format of “/folder name/report name”.

    Network credentials for SSRS

    The network credentials are required to connect with the specified SSRS Report Server using Report Viewer. Specify the ReportServerCredential property in the Web API Controller OnInitReportOptions method.

  • c#
  • public void OnInitReportOptions(ReportViewerOptions reportOption)
    {
        //Add SSRS Report Server credential
        reportOption.ReportModel.ReportServerCredential = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("ssrs", "RDLReport1");
    }

    Set data source credential for shared data sources

    The SSRS Report Server does not provide options to get credential information of the report data source deployed on the SSRS server. If the report has any data source that uses credentials to connect with the database, then you must specify the DataSourceCredentials for each report data source to establish database connection.

  • c#
  • public void OnInitReportOptions(ReportViewerOptions reportOption)
    {
        //Add SSRS Report Server and data source credentials
        reportOption.ReportModel.ReportServerCredential = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("ssrs", "RDLReport1");
    
        reportOption.ReportModel.DataSourceCredentials.Add(new Syncfusion.Reports.EJ.DataSourceCredentials("AdventureWorks", "ssrs1", "RDLReport1"));
    }

    IMPORTANT

    Data source credentials must be added for shared data sources that do not have credentials in the connection strings.

    Build and run the application and you can see the Report Viewer on the page as displayed in the following screenshot.

    Render linked reports

    You can render a linked report that point to an existing report, which is published in the SSRS Report Server. Also, it is possible to set the parameter, data source, credential, and other properties as like normal SSRS reports using the Report Viewer.

  • javascript
  • <div style="height: 100%; width: 100%;">
            <div style="height: 600px; width: 950px; min-height: 400px;" id="viewer"></div>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                $(function () {
                    $("#viewer").ejReportViewer({
                        reportServiceUrl: "/api/ReportApi",
                        reportPath: "/SSRSSamples/Territory Sales_Link",
                        reportServerUrl: "http://mvc.syncfusion.com/reportserver"
                    });
                });
            </script>
        </div>

    NOTE

    The Territory Sales_Link is a linked report created for Territory Sales report that is already available on the SSRS Report Server.
