This topic describes how to host the Telerik Reporting WCF Service in IIS. For this purpose you should follow the steps below to configure your web application:

  1. Required assembly references:

    • System.ServiceModel.dll assembly

    • Telerik.Reporting.Service.dll assembly

    • Assemblies with Telerik Reports to be exposed through the Reporting Service

  2. Add .svc file (e.g. ReportService.svc) to reference the Telerik.Reporting.ServiceReportService. The file would contain the following line only:

    ASP.NET
    <%@ServiceHost Service="Telerik.Reporting.Service.ReportService, Telerik.Reporting.Service, Version=x.x.x.x, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=A9D7983DFCC261BE" %>
    Caution note Caution

    The code sample have the version listed as Version=x.x.x.x, and you should change that with the exact assembly version you use before proceeding.

  3. Register the Reporting Service endpoints in the web.config:

    <configuration>
      ...
      <system.serviceModel>
        <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true" />
        <services>
          <service
              name="Telerik.Reporting.Service.ReportService"
              behaviorConfiguration="ReportServiceBehavior">
    
            <!-- endpoint allowing clients access to the Reporting WCF service -->
            <endpoint
              address=""
              binding="basicHttpBinding"
              contract="Telerik.Reporting.Service.IReportService">
            </endpoint>
    
            <!-- endpoint allowing clients access to resources as images -->
            <endpoint
                address="resources"
                binding="webHttpBinding"
                behaviorConfiguration="WebBehavior"
                contract="Telerik.Reporting.Service.IResourceService"/>
    
            <!-- endpoint allowing clients access to receive service's metadata via SOAP messages -->
            <endpoint
                address="mex"
                binding="mexHttpBinding"
                contract="IMetadataExchange" />
          </service>
        </services>
        <behaviors>
          <serviceBehaviors>
            <behavior name="ReportServiceBehavior">
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
            </behavior>
          </serviceBehaviors>
          <endpointBehaviors>
            <behavior name="WebBehavior">
              <webHttp />
            </behavior>
          </endpointBehaviors>
        </behaviors>
      </system.serviceModel>
      ...
    </configuration>
Caution note Caution
