Currently, if a report has multiple crosstabs and I would like to use this report for Data alerts. While setting up the rules I am unable to set up rules across cross tab. For instance, crosstab1.textBox59 >= 0 & crosstab2.textbox78 <= 0 is not possible. when i save a rule for crosstab1 and try to add a new rule for crosstab2 it automatically deletes the crosstab1 rule.
In order to provide better data-driven subscriptions implementation, the subscribers of a Scheduled Task or Data Alert should be modified dynamically. Currently they are a static list of emails, which is not convenient when a report must be sent to a whole group of users in an organization, because the group members can constantly fluctuate. Report Server should provide the option to declare an external data retrieval service in the ST/DA subscribers list. This service could be a REST API endpoint or a file path that will return the list with the subscriber emails.
Currently, the only way to integrate with Active Directory is to use Federation Services. We do not have a Federation Server nor do we require one. It would be great to add the LDAP information and be able to authenticate with AD. While larger organizations use ADFS and its required for Azure, for small networks and organizations, ADFS is overkill for trying to achieve SSO.
Hello, I would like to be able to search within the report datasource on the right hand side of the viewer. I have a lot of fields to search. Thank you.
Could the 'From' email address in Preview Email functionality be self populated from the 'Mail Server' SMTP settings in configuration? This way the users do not need to a) remember the email address; and b) type it each time they are emailing a report.
Thank you for adding this feature. I tested this feature and found that emails were not being delivered to email addresses in the 'CC' email address field. Furthermore, would it be possible to look in to these options? 1. Add 'BCC' email address field option 2. Add multiple email addresses under 'MAIL SERVER' in Configuration - This will allow us to add SMTP email services for multiple companies / clients, which can then be utilised in the 'FROM' email field in the Preview Report Email feature. It is great that Telerik takes on feedback and is continuously updating the software to provide an excellent service to its users. Thank you.
Our company needs an email to be sent with a PDF and excel sheet as an attachment. With existing feature we could set two emails to be sent. However we have 50 users and 50 reports to be configured. Now i need to set up 100 configurations to cater to both PDF and Excel.
It recently became apparent to us that there are multiple templates for sending email. There is the one that can be customized but it only get customized for internal users. There is also a separate template for external users and it cannot be customized and is common across all reports. All templates need to be customization for each report. Since the Report Server is designed to send to anyone and the licenses are controlled by who can create reports, it makes the ability to send report to users extremely limited.
Background: Our report server database undergoes maintenance every weekend. As part of this, the report server DB is taken down without stopping the Telerik service. When the DB comes back online the reporting service doesn't recognize the re-instated DB and doesn't send out reports. Reply from Telerik Support: My assumption is that the Report Server has hanged due to an error when the Storage was not available. The service has probably remained in this undefined state even after re-starting the database. Note that the Storage is a required resource, hence the service cannot work without it. We have logged the current behavior of Report Server with respect to its Storage database for improvement in our system. Feature request: It would be nice to get an alert/email to the Report server admins that the Report Server DB/Storage is unavailable.
Currently the user interface of the Report Server Manager is english only. This is ok for demo purposes on our side, but in order to offer solutions based on Telerik Report Server to our clients, the complete user interface must support other languages (e.g. german, italian) as well, ideally allowing the user to switch between languages on the fly. Without internationalized Telerik Report Server will be of no user to us or our clients.
We are disappointed with the lack of SSRS improvements over the last 8 years. We use data driven reports extensively. For example, every day at 10am we run some report that emails everyone a list of items in their inbox from a custom application that routes them a task they need to act on. The problem we experience is that there is no way to flag an item as "emailed" successfully. So we end up either writing our queries to only select the previous 24 hours worth of data, or we write the select of the data inside an SP that also updates the data to mark them as "emailed" even though if there is a problem rendering the report or a problem contacting the email server, the emails won't actually go out. Basically if we could have a data driven subscription, and while the server is looping through the data, sending off emailed reports, we could get a hook to update status for the item that was just emailed, or just errored during report rendering.
It would be great if users didn't need to authenticate with two different web applications. I would use the report server integrated with my current ASP.net website. It would be great if it authenticated and authorized users based on the same roles also.
I'm using Crystal Enterprise for a longtime, and would like to replace it with that tool. On of the most useful feature is scheduling (for time-hungry reports, that takes more than 20 minutes to be generated). It will be a plus if you add: * The ability to choose the Execution start time, and frequancy; and to enable or disable the schedule job without lossing it. * Add a menu item called "Schedule Jobs", to view all schedule jobs of any accessible report (per profile; Admin can see all categories by profiles). * The ability to execute on-demond (execute disabled or enabled schedules for prepared parameters). * The ability to sign the generated PDF. * The ability to send generated PDF to mail (one or more), and to set the mail subject and body. * nerated PDF to folder (local, remote with auth) or FTP.The ability to save the ge * The ability to view schedule execution history, and view its result; and Add option to clear old results. * No "time out" for longer generation process. * Schedule jobs queued per user profiles; * Admin can set priority to user profiles (to execute queued jobs), and can cancel jobs.
Have the ability for reports to be generated at defined intervals and delivered to one or more defined destinations - together. For example, a monthly report pack (consisting of a number of reports) can be sent to a client with all reports attached to the single email or compressed into a single zip file, or merged into a single Excel workbook, or PDF file before delivery.
In the recent R2 build there was an error with respect to no data message. And an error email was sent to all users. Currently, we have set up all users as external subscribers and admins or point of contacts as internal users. I think users shouldn't be receiving these error emails and only internal users should be recieving this. A global configuration should be available to toggle this functionality so that other customers who need emails to be sent to all will be catered to as well.
Data Alerts is a wonderful concept on Report Server. Currently, it only allows emails to be sent when a data alert is triggered. We should allow web hooks to be called when from data alerts. This would make data alerts immensely powerful e.g. it can trigger mobile push notification or even send an SMS when a specific data alert is triggered.
