How can I Subscribe SSRS report in PDF format (delivered by E-mail) with encryption (with Password) by using Report Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have requirement where, I need subscribe report through E-mail in PDF format with password.

     

    For Example: We get Credit Card monthly statement in PDF format and to open that statement, we need to enter password. Same thing I have to do when I subscribe report to a user.

    Is it possible to do through SSRS Report Manager? If yes please let me know the steps. If there is any work around, please feel free to suggest it.


    Thanks Shiven:)

  • Hi S Kumar Dubey,

    From your description, I see you want to prevent some people from accessing the subscription report by prompt the user for password.  I am afraid there is no build-in feature to fulfill it.

    However, as we know, Reporting Services has a unique extensibility architecture, which enables us to extend specific features of the product and its components. One possible workaround is that you can create assemblies to implement a delivering extension.

    More information about how to Implementing a Delivery Extension, please refer: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms154050.aspx.

  • Hi -

    SSRS doesnt support this feature. You might look at Office IRM capabilities:http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA101029181033.aspx. You can apply protections to the files after you generate the report.
