SSRS 2014 / IIS / SSL questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1. Does SSRS2014 run independently of IIS (self hosted) or can it be hosted via IIS?

    2. Can SSRS2014 be configured to use a self signed SSL cert (for development testing purposes)?

    3. Can SSRS be configured with custom asp.net HTTP modules for authentication?

  • Hi scott_m,

    >1. Does SSRS2014 run independently of IIS (self hosted) or can it be hosted via IIS?

    For SQL Server 2008 or later version, it has removed the dependency on IIS. SQL Server uses http.sys to allow you to have total control of the of the URL's to be used. See link below:

    >2. Can SSRS2014 be configured to use a self signed SSL cert (for development testing purposes)?

    Yes, we can configure a self signed SSL cert in SSRS 2014. Please refer to link below:

    Configuring Certificate for Use by SSL

    >3. Can SSRS be configured with custom asp.net HTTP modules for authentication?

    Yes, we can custom authentication in SSRS. See the following link:
