How to customize WebServiceDataSource URL


Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting


Sometimes it is necessary to modify the WebServiceDataSource URL dynamically, for example depending on the environment (i.e. test or production).


  1. The Service Url property of the WebServiceDataSource should be set as an inline parameter @Url, i.e. in Configure data retrieval dialog of the WebServiceDataSource Wizard:

    Service Url: @Url
  2. The value of @Url should be provided as an Expression (i.e. taken from a Report Parameter) so that its value to be evaluated run time - in Configure request parameters dialog of the Wizard :

    Name Type Value Design-Time Value
    @Url Inline = Parameters.Url.Value
