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.
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.
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.
I would to suggest a new features that allow us to manage data sources by username. For example: User1 will render report from active and live data; while User2 can only render reports from archived or data.
A great feature would be to add security over the connection strings that a user can choose from in the server. We have a development and production environment and we want to allow people to write reports but we don't want them hitting production data because they don't always build efficient queries which can take the production database down. This would help allow access to development and production separately and help keep the DBA from yelling at me :)
you can see what I mean here http://screencast.com/t/PzFHhkIqa7oR
> Ability to build directories for storing reports; and allow assigning user permissions per user. > So, Application A, will have its reports in Directory A; Application B, will have its reports in Directory B. > It will be a plus if you support a hierarchy or sub-directories. > It will be a plus if you add user group, to be assign by group.
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.
I could not see the feature "Fast loading of reports" anywhere in the Report Server as like in SSRS Processing Options. How is that working in the Telerik Report Server ? Thanks, R. Venkatesan
No matter what I try, I get this error when previewing a report: An error has occurred while processing Report 'SomeReport': Unable to establish a connection to the database. Please, verify that your connection string is valid. In case you use a named connection string from the application configuration file, make sure the name is correct and the connection string settings are present in the configuration file of your application. ------------- InnerException ------------- Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0. However, everything works great while in the designer. Any info would help. Thanks, -John
We use the Kendo MVC controls in our website that is hosted on Microsoft Azure. We would like to do reporting but cannot with the Telerik reporting functionality - as far as I am aware. Cloud based websites are increasing in number....
Our team is working with TelerikReporting with reports we write in Visual Studio rather than designing them directly in the tool. This lets us do version control which is important to us. It's working well for us. However, it would be much smoother a simple change: - when you upload a report, you should have the option to overwrite the definition of an existing report. Otherwise you have to:- - delete the report you are updating - because there are schedules atached, you have to delete those as well - recreate the report - recreate the schedule You can understand why this is time consuming.
Branding of the report server, as a minimum with our company logo is very important for our company. This is a deal breaker. If this minor feature improvement can be provided in the near future I will consider your product otherwise I am forced to look elsewhere.
The current version of reporting service seems to have issues with the newer servicestack libraries. The only way I could get the ServiceStack Service implementation to work is to use the following dependencies (attached). What is the official supported version of ServiceStack and when will newer version be supported?
I am using Telerik Reports Server Q1 2016. I have two problems while configuring the Authentication in Reports server. 1. Save button hides behind the footer. Am unable to see the save button for the authentication section. I have set the position in the developer tools and makes it visible. 2.The external authentication settings cannot be validated. I am getting this error while saving the authentication settings. Please refer the sample values i given in the field. Enabled: True Metadata URI : https://customFederationServer/FederationMetadata/2007-06/FederationMetadata.xml Relying Party ID : http://mylap-3918:83 (url of the application) Authority: https://customFederationServer/adfs Client ID: 1234 When i enter the above details and click on save button, i got an error "The external authentication settings cannot be validated". Any information would help. Thanks, Sankar
