  • Question

  • How can you configure SQL Server Reporting Services to be able to run in the Microsoft Edge browser on a local server if you cannot establish a trusted site for the local server?

  • Do you need to use the Edge browser, can you use Internet Explorer 11, which is installed with Windows 10?

  • Of course I can but if Microsoft is promoting the Edge browser as the future with the intent of phasing out IE, then there needs to be a solution to the problem that you cannot have trusted sites in Edge otherwise the environment is useless to the business environment.

    Microsoft cannot expect to protect everyone and maintain functionality for those working in an advanced environment.

    If there is no solution then the Edge browser is useless to the future of the Internet for the business user.  SSRS will play a major role and is another fine product in the SQL environment.  How can Microsoft promote a product as a cutting edge web browser if it cannot support one of it's own very successful products?

  • Hi DevlnCal, 

    According to your description, you cannot open Report Manager in Microsoft Edge browser, right? 

    In our local environment, we have tested this scenario and the Reporting Services report can work properly in Edge browser. In your scenario, when opening Report Manager in Edge browser, have you received any error message? If have, please post the error message or image. And Reporting Services can work properly in other browser without no issue? 

    If you have any other question, please feel free to ask.

  • In the line below I am using zzzz instead of http because you can't post a link.  In place of server is my server name.

    When I type in the url in Microsoft Edge zzzz://<server>/reports  the browser returns:

    Hmmm, we can't reach this page.

    Try this:

    Make sure you've got the right url  http://<server>

    Refresh the page

    Search for what you want.

    When I type in exactly the same address in Internet Explorer where I have established my server as a trusted website it goes to my reports.

    Do I need to configure SSRS with a SSL, and if so how do I do that?

    Is there something else that I am missing?

  • This is assuming by local server you are referring to having SSRS installed on the machine with the Edge browser, otherwise disregard....

    What if instead of using the server name you use localhost or (i.e., "http://localhost/reports" or "" or even "http://<The IP Address>/reports?

    some other things to consider...

    Do you need to configure the BackConnectionHostNames or try and disable the loopback check?  These things you can put in and reverse pretty easily...

    The information in the links might seem unrelated, but i've had to use them before...

  • Now we are making some progress!

    When I used localhost I got exactly the same response as when I used the server name.

    When I used the IP Address, I received the following response:

    SQL Server Reporting Services Error:

    User <server>\<username> does not have required permissions.  Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed.

    The user logged in is myself where I am the system administrator.

    Any help please?  Thank you!

  • By the way when I used the IP address before it gave me the message described above the browser asked me for credentials.

  • By default the account(s) granted "system administrator"/"content manager" in SSRS are those users that are in the builtin\administrators group.  This would be the users that are local administrators on the computer.

    Here are a couple things to try.  Run the Edge browser as an administrator, if you get in, explicitly add the account as content manager and system administrator in system settings and folder settings.  Otherwise, attempt this with Internet Explorer and get logged in and do the same.  By adding your account explicitly the system will not need to interrogate that group to determine membership.

  • I don't think you can run the edge browser as administrator.

    Through IE I have already added my user account in system settings as system administrator and in folder settings as content manager.

    This problem still exists in the edge browser but not in IE.

  • Give this a try...

    It would appear that as Edge is a universal app and runs in super protected mode, it's attempting to prevent you from harm...

  • This did not change anything I still get the same messages.

  • Any resolution on this? I see it is dated over a year ago. I'm just now spinning up SQL 2014 Reporting Services on my local development machine. I too needed to launch IE as an Administrator, then add myself as a System Administrator on the site and Content Manager on the root folder.

    Using IE, I can browse to and get access to the Reports folder.

    Using Edge, after supplying my credentials, I get the message that I do not have required permissions.

    FYI I am running Windows 10 with the recently released Anniversary Update.

  • Hi all,

    Has this issue resolved? I have similar problem, already give access from IE, and it looks fine over there. But in Edge browser, it still give me error "User "xxx" does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed."

  • This works in the latest insider builds/skip ahead. 17692  Hopefully it will soon be supported for all.
