You don’t see the Report Builder link in Internet Explorer

Problem: You go the Home page in Internet Explorer, the home page for your deployed reports in SSRS, and you do not see the Report Builder link. But you’re fairly sure that you have the required permissions to create reports.

Solution: Here are some things for you to check:

  1. Make sure that you are logging in within the same domain that SSRS is installed within. For example, if you’re creating an evaluation version that uses a different domain, there may be issues.
  2. Go download the Report Builder for your SQL Server version. For now, it’s a separate download.
