We get all data from a REST API with an OAuth 2.0 token-based protection. Is there a way to implement the login once and use the token for each data source? Right now, if I have multiple data sources in the same report, each one has the 2-step Authentication Settings and does its own login to the REST API.
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.
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.
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.
As a developer integrating the the Report Server with my solution, I would like to be able to apply a fully customizable Kendo theme to the Report Server server app so that it can blend fully with my applications.
As a user utilizing the Report Server product, I need to use a single instance of it to serve two or more completely separated divisions/clients so that they do not have access to each other's assets, so that I do not have to make two different deployments of the server and support them. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multitenancy
I extensively use sub reports with drill-down, drill-through actions and to fetch data, into the main report, extracted from different datasets based on a set of certain parameters. When I upload these reports to the server, I assign main and sub reports to two separate categories 'Main' and 'SubR' so that I can manage reports and users' permissions accordingly. Currently, it is not possible to 'hide' the reports under 'SubR' category for a user so that all the sub reports are hidden from view, leaving visibility of main reports only for that user. I tried by restricting user's access to the category 'SubR' so that sub reports are not visible in the list and avoid confusion from user's perspective. But when I restrict user's access to the category 'SubR', all the main reports that contain sub reports do not run correctly and start displaying 'unable to access subreport1...' error. The same error comes up if I have included a report in the main report, accessible by drill-through action. I would like to request for a functionality to 'Hide / Display' reports in conjunction with 'Read' access to the reports. This will provide further granularity to the way the reports can be made accessible and still be hidden from view.
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.
Currently, in my company, we have more than 30 clients and each client has multiple locations and multiple departments. * I have to create like more than 100 schedules now for all individual departments in each location and company. All this company data is in our DB including emails to be sent to etc. manually doing this is a nightmare. * And not to forget I have to manually update the email entry list whenever someone leaves the company or joins the client company. * An idea is to create something like a schedules.config in json format and using JS or C# create schedules in report server automatically. * Same is the case with Data Alerts. * This is a huge pain and kind of show stopper for us.
As a developer integrating the ReportServer into our solution, I want to be able to pull data for reports from my custom business objects model, instead from database, So that I can reuse the data layer I already have along with its business rules.
Though I have overridden the mail template for an individual alert, It is picking up the Configuration | Mail Templates | Data Alert External User for an external email address. However, internal email address gets the right one. Please help me resolve this.
Built-in option to select all available values of a multivalue report parameter. A Multi-value parameter can use a user function to have a value accumulating all available values. Add built-in support through the expression engine.
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.
