Authenticating and launching SSRS portal from a website RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi guys,

    i'm piecing together a hosted solution for SSRS whereby i want a link on my website to;

    1. get some credentials (username & Password) --Done

    2. authenticate to the hosted SSRS solution -- don't know

    3. Launch the SSRS Portal the the supplied username / password user

    3a.something like open a new tab in https://[ComputerName]:80/reports or https://[ComputerName]:8080/reports

    i cannot seem to find clear documentation or instruction on item 2. 

    i'm going down this path as my application is .net Core 2.1 and i'm happy to have an external reporting portal (opposed to embedded)

    any advice would be really appreciated

  • Hi, 

    For external network report deploying you could check with this two article:

    Planning for Extranet or Internet Deployment

    Access My SSRS Site Remotely

    For .net core I am afraid there would be no official ReportViewer component that can support you development. We may be need to used embedded report like iframe or so.

    Regards,

  • that's awesome advice, thanks Lukas,

    yeah the lack of report viewer in Core is frustrating, hence the approach of making the SSRS portal available

  • The community members have started the vote for calling the .Net Core version development, maybe we could get this in the future.

  • hi Lukas, 

    I have had a really good read of the details provided and it's close to what I want to do but it's not quite there.

    i'm targeting making the SSRS portal externally available, not using a report viewer as such. (if the portal is available, then the portal embedded viewer will also be)

    so progress made.

    1/ I have spun up a VM on azure

    2/ I have installed SQL Server and SSRS both of which are up and running

    3/ by the looks of it I can create local users on the VM i.e. user1, user2, user3

    4/ assign users to the respective SSRS reports with security permissions in the portal

    5/ make SSRS portal publicly available i.e. https://someURL/Reports <-- don't know how to do this

    6/ users can access https://someURL/Reports and authenticate with the VM credentials made in step 3

    long term view would be to have my web application on .net Core authenticate with a username/password to the VM hosted SSRS portal which would remain publicly available.
