How to prevent users from accessing the server with the credentials available while examining the Report Viewer's web page source?


Credentials should not be provided as plain text. Either use the Guest user or ask the user of the web page to fill in his/hers credentials before they can access the report.

  • Providing an access to the viewer's page to everyone, a Guest user account must be enabled so the end-users can have a read-only connection to the Report Server.
  • Providing an access to limit number of users that would be able to modify the report, they have to be registered as CAL users. The report viewer connected to a report server would need be utilized only by the person that provides the credentials of its associated CAL user.
