Why do you have to provide SSRS shared/embedded DataSource credential information?

Platform: WPF |
Control: ReportViewer


Reporting Service information retrieval limitation

RDL reports have limitations to retrieve a password from the SQL Reporting Service (SSRS) due to security reasons. Therefore, the credentials are provided when the DataSource credentials are saved in the Reporting Server for the shared or embedded DataSources.

The following code provides information on SSRS shared/embedded DataSource credentials.


      public void OnInitReportOptions(ReportViewerOptions reportOptions)
            reportOptions.ReportModel.DataSourceCredentials.Add(new DataSourceCredentials("datasourcename", "username", "password"));


WPF, WinRT and SilverLight

this.ReportViewer.ReportLoaded += (sen, arg) =>
                        List<DataSourceCredentials> crdentials = new List<DataSourceCredentials>();
                        foreach (var dataSource in ReportViewer.GetDataSources())
                            DataSourceCredentials credn = new DataSourceCredentials();
                            credn.Name = dataSource.Name;
                            credn.UserId = " username ";
                            credn.Password = " password ";
