  • You really don't want to put user's credentials on a URL, it's just not secure.    If you really want to, you can write a custom security extension to pass the user's credentials to the server.   Otherwise, you can pass data source login credentials on a URL to a report, if that report uses Prompt credentials.

    A better approach, if you're using windows auth is to enable Basic Authentication and also to use SSL to secure the communication between client and server. 
    Hope that helps,
