  • Hi there,

    What kind of reports do you want to give access to external users, Also who are the external users (domain users without PWA account setup or users outside the domain) ? Are you using SSRS reports or out of box view reports of PWA? If you have reports created in SSRS which is deployed on report manager in native mode, domian users can access the report by using the URL.
