Requirements and recommendations

In order to build your own reports or customize existing reports, you also need to have the SSRS Report Builder installed where you have SSRS installed.

Known limitations and recommendations:

  • Use the same domain where Microsoft SSRS is installed. If you try to use SSRS in a domain that is different from the domain where SSRS is installed, you may have some difficulty accessing reports. For example, if your computer runs in the domain and you have SSRS installed in a test domain of, you may run into issues accessing the reports.
  • If you’re accessing SSRS from a different domain, make sure that you enter your credentials and save them.
  • When you log in to SSRS, make sure that the user you’re logging in as has at least the system user role, and at least read access to the folder (according to the folder settings in SSRS).
